Crowell & Moring’s White Collar & Regulatory Enforcement Group Recognized Among Global Investigations Review's "GIR 100"

Washington – October 27, 2017: Crowell & Moring LLP is pleased to announce that its White Collar & Regulatory Enforcement Group has been recognized in Global Investigation Review’s “GIR 100” – an annual guide to the world’s leading cross-border investigations practices. This marks the third consecutive year in which the firm has been recommended for handling sophisticated cross-border, government-led, and internal investigations.

In the firm’s profile, GIR editors highlight the prior government experience of several lawyers, including Daniel L. Zelenko, chair of the firm’s White Collar & Regulatory Enforcement Group, and partner Thomas A. Hanusik. Zelenko, a partner in the firm’s New York office, previously served as a federal prosecutor in the Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division and was a senior enforcement attorney for the SEC. Hanusik, based in the firm’s Washington office, “is a 12-year veteran of the SEC and the DOJ who served as an assistant chief of the criminal division’s fraud section and was one of the original prosecutors on the task force that investigated accounting fraud at American energy company Enron.”

The profile noted partners such as Cari N. Stinebower, vice chair of the firm’s Investigations Practice. Having served as counsel for the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control from 1999 to 2005, she advises clients on U.S. sanction and money-laundering matters at Crowell & Moring. Also recognized is Kelly Currie, chair of the firm’s Investigations Practice. He returned to Crowell & Moring in 2016 after serving as Acting U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York.

In describing the group’s recent work, GIR referenced the firm’s role in one of the longest-running whistleblower cases in U.S. history, which came to a close in 2016 at the Supreme Court, as well as its involvement in major FCPA investigations.
