Opened in 1999, Crowell & Moring Brussels was initially a natural European extension of the firm's antitrust, international trade, and regulatory practices. Today, our Brussels office has grown to more than 30 lawyers.
Crowell & Moring's Brussels office has a strong domestic, European and international practice. The firm's Brussels lawyers provide a range of litigation, transactional, counseling, arbitration, and regulatory capabilities across a range of key European jurisdictions.
