Crowell & Moring Partner Juan Arteaga Named A New York Law Journal 'Distinguished Leader' and Minority Corporate Counsel Association 'Rising Star'

New York – August 13, 2018: Crowell & Moring LLP is pleased to announce that Juan A. Arteaga, a partner in the firm’s Antitrust Group, has been recognized with two recent honors: the New York Law Journal’s “Distinguished Leader” award and the Minority Corporate Counsel Association’s “Rising Star” award.

The NYLJ “Distinguished Leader” award recognizes New York lawyers in leadership positions “who achieved impressive results in the past year.” Arteaga was recognized for demonstrating exceptional legal and leadership skills that helped secure positive outcomes for his clients and further important initiatives within the firm and legal profession.

The MCCA “Rising Star” award honors lawyers whose professional accomplishments and public service make them “attorneys to watch.” Arteaga was selected for demonstrating a strong commitment to the “pursuit of excellence while possessing a compassion for those in need and a strong desire to give back to others.”

Arteaga is an experienced antitrust and white collar attorney with significant litigation and trial experience. He regularly represents Fortune 500 companies and senior executives in a broad range of civil and criminal antitrust matters, including litigation, merger reviews, and government and internal investigations. He also represents clients in a wide range of high-profile and complex regulatory investigations and commercial litigation, including securities litigation, shareholder derivative actions, class actions, and international arbitrations. Arteaga serves on the firm’s Diversity, Recruiting, and Professional Development committees.

Before joining Crowell & Moring, Arteaga was a Deputy Assistant Attorney General for the U.S. Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division, where he led and oversaw various high-profile civil and criminal investigations and litigation. During his four years at the Antitrust Division (2013-2017), Arteaga played a key role in nearly 15 enforcement actions, including several merger trials, and received multiple awards for his distinguished public service.
