Crowell & Moring Adds Antitrust And Securities Litigation Partner Daniel Edelman In New York

Washington, D.C. - January 08, 2009: Crowell & Moring LLP is pleased to announce the addition of partner Daniel D. Edelman to the firm's Commercial Litigation Group in New York. A seasoned litigator with extensive experience representing clients in antitrust and securities cases, Edelman's move enhances Crowell & Moring's ongoing work in sophisticated class action lawsuits and other high-profile litigation. Edelman joins from Heller Ehrman LLP, where he was a shareholder.

"Dan has counseled clients through high-stakes litigation and is adept at integrating both the civil and criminal components in formulating his approach to cases. He is the perfect addition to our New York office, which has gained a steady stream of premier antitrust, securities, and white collar litigators during the past two years," said Crowell & Moring Commercial Litigation Group partner William J. McSherry, Jr.

Edelman has defended antitrust and securities class actions covering a range of industries, including pharmaceuticals, financial services, and transportation, and he has participated in a broad spectrum of litigation, ranging from intellectual property to contract and breach of fiduciary duty disputes. His work has included defending one of the Big Four accounting firms in a major securities multi-district litigation relating to claims of accounting irregularities and representing a global pharmaceutical company in litigation involving price fixing and price discrimination. He has also defended a leading credit card company against claims of attempted monopolization and illegal tying in the debit card market.

"Crowell & Moring is a prestigious litigation firm known for its experienced and highly qualified lawyers. The firm offers clients significant strength in commercial litigation, a demonstrable reputation in antitrust litigation, and a highly sophisticated team in the financial services arena. When you add these up, along with the firm's growing presence in New York, it's an excellent platform for serving clients in their most complex cases," Edelman said.

Prior to joining Crowell & Moring, Edelman spent nearly 15 years at two major international law firms in New York City after having clerked for Judge Robert J. Ward in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. He has also functioned as a special Corporation Counsel, successfully trying to verdict a number of jury cases on behalf of the City of New York. Edelman earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from Princeton University and his J.D. from Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, where he served as articles editor of the Cardozo Law Review.

Crowell & Moring LLP is an international law firm with more than 450 lawyers practicing in litigation, antitrust, government contracts, health care, corporate, intellectual property and a variety of other practice areas. More than two-thirds of the firm's attorneys regularly litigate disputes on behalf of domestic and international corporations, start-up businesses, and individuals. Crowell & Moring's extensive client work ranges from advising on one of the world's largest telecommunications mergers to representing governments and corporations on international arbitration matters. Based in Washington, D.C., the firm also has offices in New York, Los Angeles, Orange County, London, and Brussels.
