WASHINGTON, Dec. 5 – LAWFUEL – The Law News Network — Crowell & Moring LLP is pleased to announce the addition of three litigators to the firm’s White Collar Defense
Group, including partner Philip T. Inglima. Joining from Baach Robinson &
Lewis PLLC, Inglima has more than 15 years practicing white collar criminal
law, as well as complex civil litigation. He is accompanied in the D.C. office
by two former Department of Justice attorneys. Counsel Ashley Bailey, a former
Justice Department attorney, also joins from Baach Robinson & Lewis. And
counsel Adrian D. Mebane joins the firm from his position as Trial Attorney
for the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, Fraud Section.
Inglima’s experience includes serving as Senior Associate Independent
Counsel in the investigation of Department of the Interior Secretary Bruce
Babbitt, in which he led a team examining allegations of perjury, bribery, and
campaign finance fraud involving national political organizations and high
legislative and executive offices.

“More than two-thirds of Crowell & Moring’s attorneys are litigators, so
strengthening our white collar defense practice is a natural part of the
firm’s growth plan,” said Crowell & Moring Chairman John A. Macleod. “Our new
additions offer a wealth of hands-on experience gained from some of the most
high-profile white collar matters in recent years. We are proud to have them
on board, and we look forward to announcing more good news for the White
Collar Defense Group in the coming months.”

Inglima’s clients have included numerous business executives, corporations
and public officials pursued in a variety of federal and state jurisdictions
in connection with a range of complex corruption and financial fraud
allegations. His client work includes representing executives from Enron, AOL,
Reliant Energy, KPMG, Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac. His early career included
private practice with the venerated Washington litigator Plato Cacheris for
more than eight years. A graduate of Georgetown University’s College of Arts &
Sciences and its Law Center, Inglima will become president of the Georgetown
Alumni Association in July 2006.

Bailey worked with Inglima as a law clerk to the Independent Counsel
Investigation of Secretary Babbitt. She also served as a Trial Attorney for
the Justice Department, where her practice involved numerous cases concerning
complex, multi-million dollar contractual disputes. While at the department,
she received the Civil Division’s Rookie of the Year Award for exceptional
performance and notable contribution by a new attorney. Bailey is a former law
clerk to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia and was
honored with the International Trial Lawyer’s Award in 1999 in connection with
her efforts in support of prisoners’ rights. Bailey is a graduate of
Georgetown University’s College of Arts & Sciences and its Law Center.

Mebane has significant experience in complex matters involving bribery,
bank fraud, money laundering, securities fraud, commodities fraud, obstruction
of justice, mail and wire fraud, and violations of the Foreign Corrupt
Practices Act and Internal Revenue Code, which he gained during his tenure as
a federal prosecutor. He was awarded the Justice Department’s Special
Achievement Award as well as the Meritorious Award for sustained exemplary
performance. Prior to joining the department, Mebane served as an Assistant
State’s Attorney for the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office in Chicago. He
received his B.A. from Georgetown University and his J.D. from Howard
University Law School.
