Government Contracts Partner Stephen McBrady Named a National Law Journal 2017 D.C. Rising Star

Washington – August 31, 2017: Crowell & Moring is pleased to announce that Stephen J. McBrady, a partner in the firm’s Government Contracts Group, has been named to the National Law Journal’s 2017 list of D.C. Rising Stars. The list profiles 40 lawyers under the age of 40 in the Washington area who have made outstanding achievements in their careers.

McBrady was recognized for his role in helping to lead Crowell & Moring’s government contracts recovery practice and his courtroom victories that have resulted in recoveries for clients totaling more than $200 million this year alone. He serves as lead counsel in the high-profile Affordable Care Act “risk corridors” lawsuits at the U.S. Court of Federal Claims and the Federal Circuit. He also counsels and litigates on behalf of clients in a variety of industries, including the aerospace and defense, health care, and technology sectors.

McBrady credits his success in large part to the value of good mentors and the deep bench at Crowell & Moring. “I benefited greatly from getting early responsibility in my case work and receiving solid advice from experienced lawyers,” he told NLJ. “I have carried that lesson forward as I mentor the next generation of lawyers, who are eager to make their mark.” He also told NLJ that taking the time to learn and understand his clients’ business and industry developments has been key to developing trusted relationships throughout his career.
