Covington is featured in this article regarding the firm advising the National Basketball Association on a media rights deals with Walt Disney Co. and Time Warner Inc.’s Turner Broadcasting System.

"The agreement comes on the heels of the NFL's renewal of its Sunday Ticket game package with DirecTV last week.

A source briefed on the matter says that Covington corporate partners Douglas Gibson and Peter Zern—both of whom are veterans of many a sports media transaction—are advising the NBA on its new TV deal along with privacy and data security chair Kurt Wimmer, litigation partners Gregg Levy and Benjamin Block.
