What Our Clients Say

Crowell gives us great service. I find that Crowell & Moring lawyers are always engaging. You know they're good to talk to. They know a lot more than just our case. They know a lot of things around our case. I like that. I appreciate curiosity, and I try to be curious. I try to work about the edges, and they're always versatile in that respect. They're down to earth. So, I'm not talking to lawyers who have their nose in the air. They speak to us just peer to peer.

On billing practices, Crowell shows a fair amount of flexibility and that is very appreciated. We've done several different types of alternative fee arrangements, and I think they've all worked out well. And I believe Crowell staffs matters efficiently.

Ed Ryan
Executive Vice President and General Counsel, Marriott International, Inc.

Crowell & Moring has invested in important ways in building a valuable and enduring relationship with GW, including seconding one of its lawyers to fill a critical need on our team on a temporary basis. The innovative arrangement worked out very well for us and we were extremely pleased with the quality of lawyering and value we received.

Beth Nolan
Senior Vice President & General Counsel, The George Washington University

One thing I wish law firms understood more is our sensitivity to billing and charges that get passed on to us. Crowell is really outstanding in that regard. They're very sensitive to what our concerns are and work very closely with us to resolve them. Other firms that we've had issues with are not so sensitive to that, and it’s pretty interesting to see it on this side.

Michael Martinez
Senior Vice President and Associate General Counsel, Marriott International, Inc.

Whenever we have an urgent and important matter, whether in Belgium or elsewhere in EMEA, Crowell & Moring is one of the first firms I call. They are efficient and effective and are true problem solvers. They advise on the best course of action, develop the strategy, and put us in contact with the right lawyers on the ground. Crowell & Moring takes care of our toughest challenges for us so we don't have to.
