In Brooklyn, Currie was involved with the multi-agency global investigation and indictment of high-ranking FIFA (Fédération Internationale de Football Association) officials and sports marketing executives on corruption charges.

“We are thrilled to welcome Kelly back to our partnership after his very successful and dedicated service at the Department of Justice,” said Tom Hanusik, chair of Crowell & Moring’s White Collar & Regulatory Enforcement Group. “The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York is a key prosecuting office in the country for white collar crime, and Kelly has successfully led that office, including its 175 prosecutors and other professional staff. Kelly’s skill and talent as both a prosecutor and defense lawyer have earned him an exemplary reputation with judges, state and federal prosecutors, and the defense bar. His return to Crowell & Moring is a significant addition to our New York office, and the firm as a whole, and will further bolster our already extensive experience on high-profile, high-stakes matters. Kelly personifies excellence, and we are really proud to welcome him back to our team.”

United States Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch, in noting Currie’s government service, said that “Currie is a consummate public servant: dedicated, selfless, and fair.”

“As a senior advisor to former U.S. Senator George Mitchell, Kelly played a crucial role in achieving the Good Friday Agreement, which brought lasting peace to the people of Northern Ireland and the United Kingdom. During two stints as an attorney in the Eastern District of New York – including his tenure as my Chief Assistant during my time there as U.S. Attorney – he was instrumental to the office’s prosecution of cases involving corruption, securities fraud and terrorism. And when I became Attorney General last April, Kelly graciously served as Acting U.S. Attorney – a role he filled with characteristic skill, energy and integrity. Through these and many other contributions, Kelly has helped to make our country — and our world — safer and more just. I want to thank him for his outstanding work, and I wish him the best as he begins a new chapter in his career.”

Currie received his J.D. from the University of Virginia School of Law.
