February 10, 2015 — National Law Journal

The National Law Journal speaks with Crowell & Moring chairman and Washington, D.C.-based partner, Kent A. Gardiner, about the growth and progression the firm has made in 2014. By investing in technological advances and an industry-wide recovery, Crowell & Moring reported increases in almost all of the firm's financial metrics last year. "It's partly about us and partly about the industry," said Gardiner. "We seem to be discernibly getting past the recession. We’re not in some big bounce or big rebound, but there’s solid growth at the top of the legal market." In addition to the aforementioned advancements, the firm's legal project management program, which relies on fee plans other than the billable hour, continues to help the firm retain current clients and attract new ones as well.

5 Tips For Getting New Lawyers Trial-Ready
October 9, 2014 — Law360

San Francisco-based partner and co-chair of the firm's Litigation Group, Gregory D. Call, discusses with Law360 the importance of preparing lawyers for trial, and the ways Crowell & Moring is able to provide this crucial experience, given that the percentage of federal court cases being resolved through trial has plummeted to less than two percent. To help prepare attorneys, Crowell & Moring conducts a one-week trial academy at which young attorneys across the firm are brought together to work with experienced trial lawyers and play different roles in a mock trial. "The young attorneys participate in direct and cross-examinations, openings, closings, voir dire and all the things that happen at trial," Call said. "It's valuable for lawyers to get an opportunity to stand up and do a cross-examination, and then hear what people think about what they did well and what they could have done better." Continuing to drive home the importance of trial readiness, Call adds, "By having a real role on a case, associates can see how what they are doing is relevant to the outcome of a possible trial, and when a trial happens, they are part of it."
