Washington, D.C.-based Crowell & Moring has beefed up its white-collar defense group by poaching Philip Inglima from Baach Robinson & Lewis. Inglima formerly served on the independent counsel team that investigated former Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt.

Among his current clients is Mark Koenig, Enron Corp.’s former chief of investor relations, who pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting securities fraud and is expected to testify for the prosecution at the upcoming trials of ex-Enron execs Kenneth Lay and Jeffrey Skilling. Inglima also represents Reggie Howard, a Reliant Energy Services Inc. executive charged with manipulating California’s electricity market.
