Justin Kingsolver is an associate in Crowell & Moring's Washington, D.C. office and practices in the Antitrust, Commercial Litigation, and Privacy-Cybersecurity groups.

Justin’s practice focuses on complex antitrust and litigation matters, with particular interests in the telecommunications, transportation, financial services, and higher education industries and on the topics of privacy, security, and constitutional law. Justin’s recent experiences include:

  • Representing a major airline in an antitrust litigation against the U.S. Department of Justice.
  • Representing Humana in a merger investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice regarding Humana’s acquisition by Aetna.
  • Representing a worldwide telecommunications firm in an antitrust investigation regarding horizontal group boycott allegations by the U.S. Department of Justice.
  • Assisting in briefwriting efforts on behalf of defrauded investors in a lawsuit against the Government of Antigua.
  • Representing a state environmental agency to prepare for potential litigation surrounding the agency’s approval of a major building project.

Justin maintains a robust pro bono practice. Recent pro bono matters include:

  • Successful representation of a federal inmate in proceedings before the U.S. Parole Commission, in which the U.S.P.C. granted parole to our client after he spent more than 32 years in federal prison.
  • Ongoing representation of a low-income D.C. resident in a suit against his landlord over a two-year-long black mold infestation.

Justin’s other pro bono practice interests include LGBT-rights advocacy, low-income housing issues, veterans’ benefits issues, and indigent criminal defense. While a summer associate, he assisted two Honduran children seeking asylum in the U.S. during the 2014 immigration crisis.

Prior to joining the firm, Justin served as a legal fellow in the general counsel's office of a 2016 presidential campaign. In spring 2015, Justin externed for the Department of Justice Antitrust Division and completed independent academic research on bundling and tying antitrust issues in the telecommunications industry.

During law school, Justin served as the chair of Michigan Law School's LGBT affinity group and represented a criminal defendant in one of MLS's appellate advocacy clinics. He was also a semi-finalist in the inaugural Global Antitrust Institute Moot Court Competition at George Mason Law School.

Justin attended Indiana University, where he served as the university’s student body president, a national board member of his fraternity (Sigma Phi Epsilon), and as the statewide chair of the College Republicans. While in college, Justin led a coalition of student leaders from across the state to author, advocate for, and secure passage of the Indiana Lifeline Law—a bill signed into law by Gov. Mitch Daniels in May 2012.
