Experienced Attorneys

We are always looking for talented lawyers who share our values of excellence and collegiality, and whose professional experience will complement or enhance our practice.  We value the skills, knowledge, expertise, and relationships that qualified attorneys with previous work experience bring to the firm.  At the same time, we are sensitive to the challenges involved in making a transition to a new law firm, and we therefore invest considerable time and resources to facilitate a lateral attorney’s integration into the firm.

Applying to Covington

We encourage experienced lawyers with outstanding academic records and a history of personal accomplishment, and who are interested in practicing with Covington, to submit their resume and several references to the recruiting contact for the firm office in which they are interested.

At Covington, we strive to maintain the highest standards of integrity to ensure the commercial success and reputation of our firm. One means by which we do this is through conducting routine background checks, which is a requirement of joining Covington. The standard pre-employment background checks we may conduct on prospective partners, lawyers, and employees include checks relating to public social media presence, criminal records, education and employment history. Additional checks may be undertaken appropriate to the requirements of the role. All background checks are conducted in accordance with applicable local laws.
