Crowell & Moring Partners Paul Rosen and Carlton Greene Honored with Burton Awards' 'Law360 Distinguished Legal Writing Award'

Washington – March 27, 2018: Crowell & Moring LLP is pleased to announce that partners Paul Rosen and Carlton Greene have received the Burton Awards’ “2018 Law360 Distinguished Legal Writing Award” for their article, “Ransomware: What Every Corporate Executive Needs to Know.” The article originally appeared in Corporate Counsel. The award honors exceptional legal writing and recognizes 30 articles from entries submitted by the nation's 1,000 largest law firms.

Rosen and Greene’s article explores increasingly common “ransomware” attacks, which place significant risks on corporations around the world. “As criminal hackers become increasingly sophisticated, so must companies’ defenses,” Rosen and Greene wrote in the article published October 30, 2017. “Appropriate prevention and protection can substantially mitigate, if not prevent altogether, catastrophic damage.” The authors went on to detail the importance of prevention measures as well as legal and practical considerations for companies and their counsel.

Rosen, a former federal prosecutor and the former chief of staff at the Department of Homeland Security, is a white collar, government investigations, and cybersecurity lawyer in Crowell & Moring’s Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. offices. Greene, the former chief counsel at the Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, or FinCEN, is a Washington-based partner in the firm’s White Collar & Regulatory Enforcement Group.

The Burton Awards is a nonprofit program dedicated to rewarding great achievements in law, which is run in association with the Library of Congress, presented by lead sponsor Law360, and co-sponsored by the American Bar Association. The award winners are selected by judges and law school professors, including professors from Harvard Law School, Stanford Law School, and UC Berkeley Law School. The full list of winners can be found here.

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.
