Co-Managing Partner, LA Office
Steptoe & Johnson LLP
Robyn Crowther, who serves as co-managing partner of Steptoe’s Los Angeles office, has considerable first-chair trial and arbitration experience across a variety of litigation fields. Her arrival to Steptoe in January 2019 strengthened the firm’s presence on the West Coast and added depth to the firm’s litigation capabilities in LA.
Last year, Crowther first chaired two FINRA arbitrations for Charles Schwab & Co. as part of her long-standing relationship with the company. In each case, Schwab entirely prevailed. She also took on a lead role as counsel for Lexington Insurance Company, a subsidiary of the American Insurance Group, when Steptoe was retained to represent Lexington in litigation that had then been pending for six years and where the plaintiff sought in excess of $100 million. Crowther helped develop a strategy to present key issues for resolution as a matter of law and the parties reached a settlement in principle.
