Lorraine M. Campos is a partner in Crowell & Moring's Government Contracts Group and focuses her practice on assisting clients with a variety of issues related to government contracts, government ethics, campaign finance, and lobbying laws. Lorraine regularly counsels clients on all aspects of the General Services Administration (GSA) and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) programs. She also routinely advises clients on the terms and conditions of these agreements, including the Price Reduction Clause, small business subcontracting requirements, and country of origin restrictions mandated under U.S. trade agreements, such as the Trade Agreements Act and the Buy American Act. Additionally, Lorraine advises life sciences companies, in particular, pharmaceutical and medical device companies, on federal procurement and federal pricing statutes, including the Veterans Health Care Act of 1992.

Lorraine has been ranked by Chambers USA since 2013, and she was recognized by Profiles in Diversity Journal as one of their "Women Worth Watching" for 2015. Additionally, Lorraine is active in the American Bar Association's Section of Public Contract Law and serves as co-chair of the Health Care Contracting Committee.

Lorraine joined the firm from Reed Smith, where she chaired their Government Contracts & Grants Team since 2010. Prior to that, she worked as a consultant for Grant Thornton where she advised the Intelligence Community, analyzed the Department of Defense utility privatization program, and performed numerous Circular A-76 studies for the Office of Management and Budget.
