Crowell & Moring LLP has a comprehensive Retail Law Practice representing a broad spectrum of retail clients, including specialty retailers, department stores, and big-box retailers across the United States and internationally. Our services encompass a wide range of litigation and transactional services, as well as an international counseling practice. Our success is demonstrated by our clients’ decisions, time and again, to call upon us for business advice and transactional expertise, and to pursue and defend against claims through litigation and alternative dispute resolution.

On litigation matters, our extensive trial experience enables us to forcefully represent our clients at trial and maximize the effectiveness of our efforts in discovery, motions, and other pretrial proceedings. We also provide mediation and other alternative dispute resolution services, bringing the same determination and imagination to settling disputes as we do to trying them. Throughout the representation, we stay focused on understanding and achieving our clients’ business goals in the most timely and cost-effective manner. Crowell & Moring’s attorneys have a proven track record, with success in recovering and saving hundreds of millions of dollars in value for our retail clients.

We also represent retailers on a diverse number of transactional matters through our breadth of experience as transactional attorneys in general corporate matters, real estate transactions (leasing and acquisitions), regulatory compliance issues, negotiation of intellectual property and other vendor relationships, debt and equity financing, and e-commerce and privacy issues. Our comprehensive retail experience allows us to staff our client teams with attorneys from multiple practice groups to address a retailer’s needs at all levels of its business.
