Crowell Moring is among the world's most trusted and respected firms. Our practice is broad and deep, spanning the globe and crossing industries. Like many lawyers, we pride ourselves on our integrity, client relationships, and ability to win cases. But that's not why 53 of us left a major law firm in 1979 to start Crowell & Moring.

We did it because we believed we could create a different kind of law firm. A place where lawyers could think differently. Act differently. Be themselves. What we are has much to do with what we are not: stuffy, arrogant, closed-minded.

Instead, we're here for you when you need us. To think strategically, as well as creatively about your legal matter. To be intellectually curious. To work together as one team, leveraging individual strengths where they will have the greatest impact. To enjoy what we do. To be tough, yet approachable. To serve our community as well as our clients. To win.
