Crowell & Moring is pleased to invite you to this program, in which some of our best trial lawyers, Greg Call, Kevin Mayer, Bob Rhoad, and Jeff Rutherford, will discuss and analyze the key winning strategies employed in four recent, precedent-setting cases. 

  • Jury trial victory for Lockheed Martin in a qui tam suit under the civil False Claims Act (FCA) alleging fraudulent underbidding on an Air Force contract and retaliatory discharge, shielding the company from damages of approximately $450 million that were subject to trebling under the FCA.
  • A judgment and jury trial victory for the University of California over rights to a promising drug for the treatment of prostate cancer, as well as $32 million in licensing fees.
  • Successful defense of MWI Corporation against the False Claims allegations by the U.S. government seeking $225 million where the jury came back against MWI, but the government was awarded ZERO damages. 
  • A complete defense jury trial victory for Honeywell in a toxic tort wrongful death cancer case after plaintiffs made a $3 million “non-negotiable” demand at the mandatory settlement conference.  

This is the first Trial Excellence Program in 2014 that Crowell & Moring will host for our lawyers and in-house partners to help them raise the quality of their craft to the highest possible level.

Featuring state-of-the-art trial and litigation topics designed to educate, inform, and inspire, these programs are taught primarily by our firm's advocacy experts across practices and offices and supplemented by selected outside experts, clients, and friends of the firm.
