Covington & Burling LLP


In an increasingly regulated world, we have an exceptional ability to navigate clients through their most complex business problems, deals and disputes. 

Our distinctively collaborative culture allows us to be truly one team globally, drawing on the diverse experience of lawyers and advisors across the firm by seamlessly sharing insight and expertise. 

What sets us apart is our ability to combine the tremendous strength in our litigation, investigations, and corporate practices with deep knowledge of policy and policymakers, and one of the world’s leading regulatory practices. 

This enables us to create novel solutions to our clients’ toughest problems, successfully try their toughest cases and deliver commercially practical advice of the highest quality.

In an increasingly regulated world, we have an exceptional ability to help clients navigate their most complex global business problems. Covington professionals take a holistic approach to deals, disputes, investigations, and policy challenges—whether they are centered within a particular country or have international implications.

We use our extensive insight about the workings of governments around the world to provide practical business advice. Through our “Mini State Department,” our clients benefit from the experience of our more than 120 former government officials, diplomats, and regulators, who work seamlessly with our teams of litigators, regulatory lawyers, and deal makers.

Now in our tenth decade, the firm's good work and good works have continued. Today, the firm numbers more than 1,000 lawyers in 12 offices. Those lawyers and their practices are extraordinarily diverse, obviously more so than at the firm's creation almost 100 years ago. But importantly, the traditions handed down by the firm's founders—excellence, tolerance, integrity, and a commitment to public service and professionalism—endure today.
