National Law Journal Names Covington’s Garza to Washington’s Most Influential Women Lawyers List

June 28, 2010

WASHINGTON, DC, June 28, 2010 — Covington & Burling LLP partner Deborah Garza has been named to the National Law Journal’s list of Washington’s Most Influential Women Lawyers. The list, published in the June 28 issue, honors what the editors call power players who “have taken a sledgehammer to the glass ceiling to grab their place among the elite of the Washington bar.”

In recognizing Ms. Garza, co-chair of Covington’s global antitrust and consumer law practice, the editors reflect on her successful leadership as the Presidentially appointed chair of the bipartisan Antitrust Modernization Commission, which was created by Congress to study and update the antitrust laws. According to the editors of the National Law Journal, the 427-page report issued in 2007 has become a “go-to reference for lawmakers” and is one of the significant achievements in Ms. Garza’s nearly 30 year career.

The profile on Ms. Garza also recognizes her three tours of duty at the Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division, including her service as acting head of the Division. Since rejoining Covington in 2009, the editors say Ms. Garza has handled such “big-ticket” matters as Merck & Co.’s $41 billion merger with Schering-Plough and Exxon Mobil Corp.’s $31 billion acquisition of XTO Energy.
