Covington Expands International Group With Addition of Ambassador Spiegel

June 2, 2008

WASHINGTON, DC, June 2, 2008 — Covington & Burling LLP is pleased to announce that Ambassador Daniel Spiegel has joined the firm as senior of counsel. Mr. Spiegel will be resident in the firm’s Washington office.

At Covington, Mr. Spiegel will continue to build and manage large coalitions of global food, alcohol, and medical device companies who are working to navigate increasingly active standard-setting exercises by a number of international organizations, such as the United Nations, the IMF, and the OECD. He will also draw upon his international economic policy experience in helping the firm expand its work on foreign investment and other policy issues.

“I am very pleased to join Covington because I have long admired the firm for its deep, longstanding, and growing international engagement,” said Mr. Spiegel.

“Ambassador Spiegel has been very effective for his clients across the range of international organizations. He has also represented the US with distinction in a wide variety of positions,” said Stuart Eizenstat, chair of the firm’s international practice and a former U.S. Ambassador to the European Union. “I worked closely with him during the Clinton Administration, and have known and respected him for over two decades in his public service and private life.”

Mr. Spiegel has a long and distinguished career in public service. He served as the U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations and Other International Organizations in Geneva from 1993 to 1996. In that capacity, he was the U.S. envoy to the World Health Organization, the World Intellectual Property Organization, the U.N. High Commission for Refugees, the International Labor Organization, the International Telecommunications Union, and the U.N. Conference on Trade and Development.

Covington’s international group provides advice to clients on all aspects of the international challenges they face, including in connection with export control regulations, national security issues, customs, trade policy, international arbitration, transactions, and international policy.
