Covington’s Policyholder Coverage Practice Receives Chambers Award for Excellence and Top National Ranking

June 15, 2007

WASHINGTON, DC, June 15, 2007 — Covington & Burling LLP was presented last evening with the Chambers Award for Excellence for its 70-member policyholder coverage practice. This is the first time that Chambers USA has issued this award, which singles out one insurance coverage practice in the nation for its notable achievements. During the past 30 years, Covington’s lawyers have been at the forefront assisting policyholders in important coverage matters involving nearly every aspect of insurance. Over this time, the firm has helped clients recover well in excess of $10 billion in insurance proceeds.

In addition to the Award for Excellence, Covington’s policyholder coverage practice received a top national ranking in the recently released 2007 edition of Chambers USA. More of Covington’s policyholder lawyers were ranked by Chambers than any other policyholder firm, including five with national rankings, four of whom received the top national ranking.

In the Chambers USA 2007 guide, Covington’s insurance group is described as “at the vanguard of insurance litigation.” Clients say “[i]ts sophisticated presence immediately makes an impact on a case,” and “is the obvious first choice in difficult situations.” According to Chambers:

“This ‘intellectually superb’ group is consistently recognized for its work in negotiation and settlement, although when called upon, these attorneys do flex their trial muscles. The firm is foremost credited for the strength of its Washington, DC coverage practice but lawyers at Covington & Burling have a tendency to fan out across the country no matter where their office base. Indeed, clients appreciated its ability to ‘pull together comprehensive teams’ on the largest and most complex matters.”

Chambers USA rankings and editorial content are based on thousands of interviews conducted each year by Chambers researchers with clients and legal practitioners in 175 countries.

Covington’s policyholder practice has also received top ratings from other legal rating services. The Legal 500 has given the practice group its top ranking in both the US and the UK.
