March 19, 2012

SAN FRANCISCO, March 19, 2012 — Covington & Burling LLP is pleased to announce that Nora Gibson, a well-regarded capital markets lawyer, has joined the firm’s corporate practice as a partner. She will be resident in the firm’s San Francisco office.

Ms. Gibson advises companies and underwriters in initial public offerings and other capital market transactions. She has led more than 100 initial public and follow-on offerings, primarily by growth-oriented technology and biotechnology companies based in Silicon Valley.

At a prior firm, Ms. Gibson was part of the highly regarded China corporate team that recently joined Covington’s China and Silicon Valley offices, including Carmen Chang and partners Michelle Edwards, Eva Wang and Scott Anthony.

“We are delighted to welcome Nora to Covington,” said Timothy Hester, chair of the firm’s management committee. “Nora, along with the addition of our new partners in China and California, strengthens our corporate presence and adds to our growing capital markets practice for issuers and underwriters.”

“Covington’s commitment to Silicon Valley and the capital markets practice, as well as its broad client base, offers a wonderful platform for my practice,” said Ms. Gibson. “I look forward to rejoining Carmen, Michelle, Eva and Scott and assisting the firm’s clients in IPOs and other transactions.”

Ms. Gibson will be part of the firm’s Securities and Capital Markets group that currently includes partners in New York, Silicon Valley, Beijing, Washington and London.

Ms. Gibson received her J.D. from University of San Francisco Law School and her B.A. from University of California, Berkeley.
