Over the past year, we have had the joy of celebrating Crowell & Moring’s 40th anniversary with you—and what a wonderful a year it has been.
Last February, many of our founding lawyers joined us to mark our own so-called “Valentine’s Day Massacre” in 1979 when a band of 53 bold lawyers struck out from the comforts of Big Law to start a different kind of law firm. In March, many of you joined us for an alumni dinner at the Smithsonian American Art Museum National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. to honor the courage of those lawyers. It was a special evening and one that we were so happy to share with our extended Crowell & Moring family.
Our anniversary has also been a time to reflect upon the amazing legacy that our alumni have left us with and to recommit ourselves to the vision of our business and the commitment to one another and our communities that makes our firm unlike any other. In a salute to our founding lawyers commitment to pro bono service, our lawyers and professional staff volunteered in firm-wide “Days of Service” last summer at organizations ranging from the L.A. Regional Food Bank to The Bronx is Blooming to Les Cailloux in Brussels. And last fall, all of our lawyers and senior professional staff gathered in California for a retreat that celebrated the remarkable firm that Crowell & Moring has become and the bright future ahead.
In honor of this special milestone, we have created a 40th anniversary video that we are proud to share with you. It aims to capture the power and soul of Crowell & Moring and bring the story of our firm to life through photographs of lawyers and professional staff from across all of our offices and from over many years.
We hope that you will enjoy this look back as much as we did.
