Crowell & Moring Listed as 'Highly Commended' for Sanctions Work in 2018 WorldECR Awards

Washington – August 9, 2018: Crowell & Moring LLP is pleased to announce that the firm has been recognized as “highly commended” in the “Sanctions Law Firm of the Year, USA” category by WorldECR, a leading international journal covering export controls and sanctions. The publication’s annual “WorldECR Awards” honors firms for their “outstanding work, vision, best practice, commercial benefit to the company, and contribution to international security, of organizations and individuals working in the fields of export control and sanctions compliance and non-proliferation.”

Crowell & Moring was among just five firms that WorldECR recognized in the U.S. sanctions category. The editors noted Crowell & Moring’s comprehensive sanctions practice for providing advice on anti-money laundering and export controls, commending the firm’s “business-savvy” lawyers for their ability to give advice in the light of business risk. The publication noted that the firm is “often called on when others have not identified significant issues, or have not been able to develop a solution to a sanctions challenge, being regularly called on by other law firms, both in and outside the United States, for sanctions help.”

In the firm’s profile, WorldECR reported notable sanctions matters, including advising a U.S. entity on customer relationships, supply chain integrity, and banking channels, and assisting a European shipping firm to navigate U.S. and European Union sanctions in Venezuela and Russia. WorldECR also highlighted partners Cari Stinebower and Michelle Linderman, leaders of the firm’s sanctions practice, and other team members including partners Alan Gourley, Carlton Greene, and Jeff Snyder; counsel Dj Wolff; and international trade services manager Edward Goetz.

Firms recognized by WorldECR were chosen through review of specific matters that demonstrate the direct and positive effect and benefits to the client(s) of its advice.

No aspect of this advertisement has been approved by the Bars of, or any courts in, the jurisdictions in which the lawyers are admitted to practice.
