Crowell & Moring Announces Promotion of Three Lawyers to Partner

Washington, D.C. – January 1, 2005: It is with great pleasure that Crowell & Moring LLP announces the election of three new partners, effective Jan. 1, 2005.

The new partners are Jerome A. Murphy, a member of the Litigation practice group; Elizabeth W. Newsom, a member of the Government Contracts practice group; and Tracy A. Roman, a member of the Litigation practice group. All newly elected partners work in the Washington, D.C., office.

"I extend my heartfelt congratulations to the newest members of the partnership," C&M Chairman John Macleod said. "Their hard work, dedication and expertise will continue to be integral parts of the top-notch legal representation offered by Crowell & Moring."
