Our Firm

A Different Way of Practicing Law

Our boutique size gives us the flexibility to tailor our legal services to address today’s complex regulatory environment, taking into account each client’s unique business strategy, culture, and brand. We help our clients develop and implement practical, risk-based solutions to real-world ethics, compliance, and investigations challenges.

At Crawford & Acharya, we combine our decades of experience representing clients in multiple legal settings and jurisdictions with our client-centric approach to fee arrangements.

Experienced & Effective

Companies today face increasingly complex ethics and compliance challenges, heightened scrutiny from global regulators, and significant demands from consumers, employees, and other stakeholders—all while balancing internal pressures for budget and resources.

We have handled matters around the world in a variety of industries, including life sciences, retail, food and beverage, manufacturing, defense, and technology. Having collectively worked for some of the world's most elite global companies and law firms, and as prosecutors, we see value in offering our clients an alternative to the traditional law firm model.

We joined forces to create a bold and innovative law firm that allows us to provide exceptional compliance and investigations services in a manner that suits our clients' needs.

Client Centric & Collaborative

We partner with our clients’ in-house legal, compliance, human resources, internal audit, and business teams to understand their strategic challenges and goals.

We take a forward-thinking approach to problem solving. We work with clients to identify the gaps and red flags that may result in issues, and when problems do arise, implement remedial measures to mitigate and avoid reoccurrence.

Our experience makes us uniquely positioned to think outside the box when it comes to fee structures. We offer a variety of fee arrangements, including project-based pricing, flat fees, hourly rates, and monthly retainers—all in a way that is predictable and transparent for our clients.

A Women-Owned Law Firm

We are a member of the National Association of Minority & Women Owned Law Firms (“NAMWOLF”) and a certified Women’s Business Enterprise through the Women's Business Enterprise National Council (“WBENC”), which has confirmed that our law firm is at least 51% owned, operated, and controlled by women. These organizations are dedicated to promoting and empowering women-owned businesses.

As a boutique law firm founded by women of color, diversity is not just something we talk about—it’s who we are. By diversifying their law firm ranks, corporations and public entities demonstrate their commitment to fostering inclusion and diversity, which in turn empowers minority and women attorneys and brings about a more balanced and sustainable economy.
