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

Washington – September 23, 2016: Crowell & Moring LLP is pleased to announce that the firm has been recognized in Global Investigation Review’s “GIR 100” for the second consecutive year, a ranking of the top 100 global investigations practices. The firm is recommended as one of the leading cross-border practices, having advised some of the world’s largest companies on investigations matters ranging from the FCPA to the False Claims Act.

The firm’s profile highlights the experience of several distinguished white-collar lawyers, including partners Thomas A. Hanusik and Daniel L. Zelenko of the firm’s White Collar & Regulatory Enforcement Group. Hanusik, based in the firm’s Washington office, is a veteran of both the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Department of Justice, having “served as 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.” Zelenko, a partner in the firm’s New York office, served as a senior enforcement attorney for the SEC following his position as a federal prosecutor in the DOJ’s Antitrust Division.

The profile noted the arrival of recent lateral hires Kelly Currie and Peter Miller. Currie rejoined the firm as a partner earlier this year after serving as Acting U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York. Miller joined the firm in 2015 as senior counsel after serving as Chief Privacy Officer at the Federal Trade Commission. Also recognized is the firm’s strong International Trade Practice, which includes partner Cari Stinebower. She previously served as counsel for the US Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control between 1999 and 2005. She currently advises clients on US sanction and money-laundering matters.

In describing the group’s recent work, GIR referenced the firm’s role in DuPont’s trade secret case win against Kolon Industries, as well as its involvement in major FCPA investigations.
