Covington Named to GCR’s Global Elite

February 6, 2012

BRUSSELS, 6 February, 2012 — The Global Competition Review has named Covington & Burling to the Global Elite, a list of the top 20 competition practices worldwide recognised in its annual GCR 100 rankings.

The 2012 edition of the publication’s GCR 100 provides extensive analysis of antitrust groups in 41 jurisdictions around the world. In honoring Covington, GCR reported: “Covington & Burling has had an outstanding year with rivals praising its litigation and M&A practices, and expertise in the pharmaceuticals, life sciences and technology sectors.”

“We are pleased GCR has recognised Covington as a premier competition practice in the world,” said Thomas Barnett and Deborah Garza, co-chairs of the firm’s global antitrust and consumer law practice group. “This is a testament to the firm’s deep industry expertise, coupled with sophisticated cross-jurisdictional, cross-disciplinary antitrust experience.”

Lars Kjølbye, head of the firm’s EU competition group, added: “We are gratified that Covington has been selected for this recognition. The firm has a unique group of talented lawyers who are committed to delivering quality service to our clients.”

GCR noted the strengthening of Covington’s antitrust practice with the recent additions of Damien Geradin and Ianis Girgenson in Brussels, and John Nields, Alan Wiseman, Jason Raofield, Andrew Lazerow and Tom Isaacson in Washington; the return of James Garland to the Washington office after serving at the U.S. Justice Department as deputy chief of staff to the Attorney General; and the promotion of Miranda Cole to partner in Brussels.

Covington’s global antitrust practice and its lawyers are widely recognised for their excellence, including rankings in Global Competition Review, Chambers Global, Chambers Europe, Chambers USA, Legal 500 EMEA, Legal 500 US and PLC.
