International Trade Group Of The Year: Covington & Burling

January 27, 2017, Law360

Law360 selected Covington’s International Trade practice as a “Practice Group of the Year,” profiling the team’s involvement in billions of dollars worth of transactions, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act investigations, and sensitive national security trade reviews. “Our practice in general is distinguished by the sheer number of former senior enforcement officials we have at the firm,” says Steven Fagell. “Having that complement of senior enforcement officials really gives us unique insight into how to approach these cases when they become matters of enforcement for the U.S. government.”

Peter Lichtenbaum adds that having government experience enables the firm’s international trade lawyers to practice “Law-Plus” — core legal services, complemented by policy knowledge, experience, and judgment honed by decades of involvement in the field. Lichtenbaum says that it’s rare to find a firm that can advise across the full sweep of international disciplines at such a high level, both in the U.S. and in Europe. “I’m not aware of any other firm that can match us with the breadth and depth of compliance expertise.”
