Sports Group Of The Year: Covington & Burling

February 5, 2018, Law360

Covington was named a 2017 Sports Practice Group of the Year by Law360. According to Ben Block, one of the most rewarding aspects of the sports group is the opportunity to work with repeat clients. "But," he adds, "every year and every day is a new, different, and exciting challenge."

Commenting on the Tax Court victory on behalf of the Boston Bruins in a dispute with the IRS over away-game meal costs, Jeremy Spector says, "It was a relatively discrete issue for one team for not a lot of money in that particular case, although it had ramifications for a bunch of teams, in a bunch of leagues, for a lot of money, across the whole sports industry." He adds, "This really was a bellwether case for the industry."

According to Derek Ludwin, "We're achieving our objective which is to be a full-service resource to the sports industry on an ongoing basis."
