Partner in the Litigation Group
Crowell & Moring LLP

Crowell & Moring partner Emily T. Kuwahara has represented clients in appeals, patent inventorship disputes, breach of contract actions, particularly for technology companies, business torts, antitrust and consumer class actions, unfair competition law and other complex business disputes, resulting in satisfied clients and the recovery of hundreds of millions of dollars.

Over the last decade, Kuwahara has been a lead member of the Crowell & Moring team representing The Regents of the University of California in a number of key cases. She is currently leading the defense of challenges to the university’s COVID-19 vaccine policy. Previously, from 2011 to 2020, she litigated a series of disputes relating to the licensing of compounds to treat prostate cancer. With a never-wavering focus on the client’s goals, the team turned a lawsuit against The Regents seeking hundreds of millions of dollars of damages into an offensive suit for unpaid licensing fees.
