Covington Again Named Law360 Firm of the Year

WASHINGTON-Law360 named Covington as one of its Firms of the Year for the third consecutive year. The firm won eight Practice Group of the Year awards, tied for the most of any law firm. The recognition highlights the firm's depth and breadth of practice across its corporate, litigation, and regulatory practices, as well as key industry sectors like life sciences and technology.

The Covington practices named 2020 Practice Groups of the Year are:

  • Banking
  • Class Action
  • Compliance
  • Government Contracts
  • Life Sciences
  • Product Liability
  • Technology

'The firm has successfully built a range of capabilities that few other firms can match, and clients are increasingly looking for what Covington can offer broad and deep substantive regulatory, and industry expertise combined with high-end litigation, corporate, and investigations and white collar practices across multiple continents,' says Doug Gibson, Covington's Chair. 'Beyond these practice and substantive strength, we see increasingly that clients are focusing on our collaborative, team-based culture as something that sets the firm apart. Our collaborative model, which is fostered by our tradition of collegiality and lack of an originations-based compensation system, facilitates our senior lawyers working effectively as teams with the most relevant expertise and experience and allowing us to deliver higher value services.'

Law360's Firms of the Year are those firms awarded the most Practice Group of the Year designations. The Practice Group of the Year awards honor firms 'for guiding landmark deals, scoring victories in high-profile disputes and helping companies navigate uncharted legal seas made rough by the coronavirus pandemic.'
