Crowell & Moring Named to "GIR 100" for Seventh Consecutive Year

Washington – November 10, 2021: Global Investigations Review has named Crowell & Moring’s Investigations and White Collar & Regulatory Enforcement groups to its prestigious GIR 100 list, an annual guide to the world’s leading cross-border investigations practices. Based on extensive research, GIR selects 100 firms from around the world that it deems most able to handle sophisticated cross-border government-led and internal investigations. This is the seventh consecutive year that Crowell & Moring has made the list.

GIR highlighted the firm’s “strong reputation in the FCPA market and its history of working on cutting edge cases,” including helping “an asphalt company secure a significant fine discount in an FCPA case because of the business’s financial situation.”

The publication also noted the recent additions to the firm, including partner Michael Mann, who joined the firm from Kibbe & Orbe and brings over a decade of experience at the SEC’s enforcement division; partner Preston Pugh, joining from Miller & Chevalier and well-regarded for his monitorship experience; and partner Michael Atkinson, who previously served as the inspector general of the intelligence community, among other high-ranking roles at the DOJ. GIR also noted the deep bench of the firm, including partners Thomas A. Hanusik, who chairs the Investigations Group; Philip T. Inglima, chair of Crowell & Moring; and Kelly T. Currie, former acting U.S. attorney. The editors also recognized the “impressive white-collar defence lawyers in [the firm’s] international trade group, who advise on sanctions and export controls matters,” including partners Caroline E. Brown, Carlton Greene, and Dj Wolff.

“We are honored to receive this recognition from GIR for being one of the world’s premier firms for our white collar and investigations team,” said Daniel L. Zelenko, chair of the firm’s White Collar & Regulatory Enforcement Group. “Our clients look to us to help them navigate the most complex investigations and crises and with enforcement actions increasing in the wake of the pandemic, we remain ready and prepared.”
