Stu Newberger is a Washington-based partner with the international law firm of Crowell & Moring LLP, with offices in London, Brussels, New York and California. His practice centers on complex litigation in the U.S. federal and state trial and appellate courts, as well as the U.S. Supreme Court, and in international arbitration venues around the world. He also co-chairs the firm's “International Dispute Resolution” practice group.
A large part of Stu's practice arises from actions and decisions of governments. The issues range from “private commercial” activities (such as aircraft ownership, oil and energy contracts/concessions, hotel/resort operations, and soft-drink franchises), to “public policy” issues (such as state-sponsorship of terrorism, confiscation/expropriation of property, violations of international law, and international crimes). In addition to courts and arbitration venues, he has extensive contact with international organizations (such as the United Nations and the World Bank/IMF), executive and regulatory agencies (including the U.S. Department of State, the U.S. Department of Justice and the European Commission of the EU), and legislative bodies such as the U.S. Congress.
Stu served as an Adjunct Professor of Law at Georgetown University for many years. He also has lectured on law, international affairs and public policy issues at the University of Pennsylvania (Huntsman Program), the University of Virginia, George Washington University, American University, the University of the West Indies (for the Carter Center for Peace), the Aspen Institute and other institutions. In addition, he has presented programs, speeches and seminars for the American Bar Association throughout the U.S. and in the United Kingdom, and has lectured at many annual congresses of the Union Internationale des Avocats, including in France, Australia, Argentina, Switzerland, and Portugal. He is also on the Council of the Woodrow Wilson Center for Scholars.
Stu received his B.A. from George Washington University in 1974 and his J.D. from Georgetown University in 1979. Prior to joining the firm, Stu served as law clerk to U.S. District Judge Harold H. Greene, and as an Assistant U.S. Attorney. He also served for many years as a member of the Committee on Grievances of the U.S. District Court, on the Board of the Historical Society for the D.C. Circuit, and the Judicial Conference for the D.C. Circuit. Stu is a member of the bar of the District of Columbia.
