Background - Global Experience (Europe)
Europe & Russia/CIS

With offices in London and Brussels, Crowell & Moring is a go-to firm for businesses seeking to expand their operations and markets in the European Union, across Central and Eastern Europe, and beyond. The EU serves as a key cultural, political, legal and economic crossroads — and our lawyers help clients maximize the opportunities available in this important region of the world.

Our London office is a prime example of the innovative, entrepreneurial and straightforward approach that is central to the success of Crowell & Moring. Our lawyers work in practice groups that are fully integrated with the rest of the firm, providing clients with seamless service in cross-border transactions and dispute resolution. The London team has a strong focus on antitrust dispute resolution and recovery, corporate, finance and commercial work, and international dispute resolution, arbitration, and litigation. In addition to representing clients in the United Kingdom, we work with businesses and executives throughout continental Europe, North and South America, Asia, and the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).

Our Brussels office includes more than 30 lawyers who are familiar with virtually all of the jurisdictions within the EU and its 27 Member States. We provide a full range of litigation, arbitration, transactional, regulatory, and counseling services to international business that need to understand EU law and the multiple legal and regulatory regimes across Europe. Our competition, international trade, intellectual property, and technology, media, and telecommunications lawyers have been single out by Chambers Europe and Chambers Global as among the top legal providers in the region. In addition to these areas of law, we have a strong focus on corporate and commercial transactions, labor and employment, pharmaceuticals and life sciences, privacy and data protection, product risk management, and environmental, energy and chemical law.

In conjunction with our international policy and regulatory affairs affiliate, C&M International, we represent clients whose interests in Europe require the cooperation of government agencies and international organizations, including the United Nations, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the U.S. Department of State, the U.S. Department of Justice, and national governments throughout the region.
