NEW YORK, N.Y./April 1, 2010 -- Connell Foley LLP has brought on board Michael J. Crowley, a talented trial lawyer with a twenty-five year record of service to Fortune 500 companies at the New York law firm he helped establish. The addition of Crowley’s practice marks a significant expansion of Connell Foley LLP’s New York operations.
