Washington – June 5, 2018: Crowell & Moring LLP is pleased to announce that it has been recognized as a “Top Tier” firm in six practice areas in the 11th edition of the Legal 500 United States. In addition, partner Daniel R. Forman, co-chair of the firm’s Government Contracts Group and Management Board member, has been named one of 13 “Leading Lawyers” in the Government Contracts category for the second consecutive year.

Legal 500 recognized Crowell & Moring in the following categories:

  • Government: Government Contracts (Tier 1)

  • Insurance: Advice to Insurers (Tier 3)
