An Unexpected Win for Covington in a Trade Case with Big Implications

January 29, 2018, The Litigation Daily

The Litigation Daily highlights Covington's successful representation of Bombardier before the International Trade Commission (ITC).

"The unanimous decision in our favor was particularly rewarding,” says Peter Lichtenbaum, who led the Covington team representing Bombardier. “Trade cases are always challenging to defend, and this case was even more challenging because of the unique and unprecedented issues associated with multibillion dollar aircraft programs that operate over many decades. Covington's team sought to focus the ITC on the implications of these issues."
