Trafficking Rule Raises Subcontractor Monitoring Concerns
January 28, 2015 — Law360

Washington, D.C.-based Government Contacts Group partner, Peter Eyre, talks to Law360 regarding a final rule that will tighten restrictions on human trafficking in government contracting. Under its requirements, all contractors must disclose working conditions to employees, are barred from confiscating passports or other immigration documents, must ensure that workers aren't being charged any recruitment fees, and must provide the worker with return transportation for non-nationals. "I think another big question is: 'Who pays for this?'" Eyre said. "There are some very specific obligations, both the compliance plan ... and others. But who is going to pay for that?"

At Some D.C. Firms, More Women Than Men Make Partner
January 19, 2015 — National Law Journal

Crowell & Moring managing partner Ellen M. Dwyer is quoted in a National Law Journal article highlighting the trend that women accounted for half or more of new partners at eight of the largest firms in Washington, D.C. This year, three of Crowell & Moring's six attorneys that were promoted to partnership were women, which Dwyer attributes to the firm's long-term campaign of making more opportunities available to women. Washington, D.C.-based tax partner, Jennifer Ray is noted as one of the firm's newly promoted partners.

Life Sciences Cases to Watch In 2015
January 2, 2015 — Law360

Washington, D.C.-based partners, Terry Rea, of Crowell & Moring's Intellectual Property Group, and Keith J. Harrison, of the firm's Labor & Employment and Litigation groups, weigh in on two important cases in the life sciences arena. Harrison discusses Teva Pharmaceuticals USA, Inc.'s challenge of a California appellate decision that a generic-drug manufacturer can be held liable for failing to warn consumers of the side effects listed on the equivalent brand-name drug, which may potentially be taken up by the U.S. Supreme Court. "This is going to be a case that is going to further define the scope of federal preemption," Harrison said. Additionally, Rea talks about the Cuozzo Speed Technologies LLC suit, which argues that the Patent Trial and Appeal Board uses the incorrect standard during America Invents Act (AIA) proceedings, making it difficult for inventors to retain their patents. "Everybody is going to be very, very careful how they handle this [case]," Rea said of the suit, which may upend new IPR standards.

Government Contracts Legislation and Regulation to Watch In 2015
January 2, 2015 — Law360

Washington, D.C.-based Government Contracts partner, Peter Eyre, discusses the potential impact of executive orders on the government contracts industry, including a 2012 order that will recruit federal contractors in U.S. efforts to fight labor trafficking at home and abroad. "That proposal came out months ago. That is now, as far as we can tell, ready to come out in final form. Because of the compliance requirements of that rule, it's something that will get a lot of attention," Eyre said.
