Karen  Hermann Profile Image

I am a partner in Crowell & Moring's Washington, D.C. office. My practice focuses on mergers and acquisitions, carve-out transactions, joint ventures and strategic alliances. In addition, my practice includes a wide range of intellectual property and commercial contract transactions, including license agreements, technology development agreements, reseller and distribution agreements and outsourcing and services agreements. My clients span across a wide range of industries, with a particular emphasis on defense contractors and technology companies. I grew up in Southern Illinois on a farm and was the first in my family to graduate from college. I enjoy cooking, reading, tiling and running half-marathons. I live in Alexandria, Virginia with my long-term partner, Susan. We got married in May, 2014 on our 20th anniversary. We have a dog and two cats.
