Law360 Names Crowell & Moring "Transportation Practice Group of the Year"

Washington – December 21, 2020: Law360 named Crowell & Moring “Transportation Practice Group of the Year.” Law360 recognized the group for “helping airlines, railroads, and shipping giants navigate the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic and for its work advising automotive and other manufacturers that repurposed their factories to produce ventilators and other medical equipment.”

In its feature article, Law360 reported that Crowell & Moring “has planted itself at the forefront of emerging technology such as self-driving or autonomous vehicles, unmanned aircraft systems or drones, electric scooters and other advanced mobility services.”

"We're fortunate to have an array of terrific clients who are deeply embedded in the industry or who are startups," Scott Winkelman, chair of the firm’s Transportation Practice, told Law360. "We have the great pleasure of both keeping them out of courts by making safe products and well-performing products, but also working with the relevant agencies to make sure how they are building their engines, how they are labeling their products, conforms with [regulations]."

Law360 noted how the adoption of new technologies will also drive new trends in litigation. Crowell & Moring’s Transportation Practice consists of more than 75 lawyers across its offices and has worked to bridge the gap between manufacturers' and consumers' understanding of how technology fits into the highly regulated industry.

"In a world of COVID, in a world of digital, our clients are morphing on a regular basis, and they come to us because of four decades or so of experience with transportation and because we've pivoted with them before,” Winkelman told the outlet.
