Steve McBrady is a partner in the Washington, D.C. office of Crowell & Moring and a member of the Steering Committee for the firm's 60-lawyer Government Contracts Group.

Experience

Steve leads the firm's government contractor claims litigation and recovery practice, and has extensive first-chair experience litigating cases before the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals (ASBCA), and state and federal courts around the country. In the past year, Steve’s litigation teams have won significant victories, including a $250 million contract dispute with the U.S. government, and three high-profile judgments against the U.S. government in litigation arising under the Affordable Care Act. Steve is also frequently called upon to resolve sensitive matters via alternative dispute resolution (ADR), including confidential arbitration and mediation.

In addition to his litigation practice, Steve serves as a strategic advisor to in-house counsel and corporate executives on high-stakes and "bet the company" matters. To that end, clients in the defense, health care, energy, manufacturing, and technology sectors regularly seek his advice on a wide range of issues, including complex litigation and internal investigations, due diligence in support of M&A transactions, ethics and compliance counseling, and government audits.

Steve regularly speaks at government and industry events around the country, and provides on-site training to legal and executive teams on a range of topics. His legal commentary on government-facing issues has been featured in the New York Times and various other print, radio, and television media.

Steve previously served as vice chair of the firm's Recruiting Committee, and is an active sponsor of young and diverse attorneys throughout the law firm. His focus on client service has earned numerous awards over the years, including selection to the National Law Journal's "40 Under 40" list, and the Capital Pro Bono Honor Roll.
