David Lorello Joins Covington, Expands Global Anti-Corruption Practice

May 16, 2012

LONDON, 16 May, 2012 — Covington & Burling is strengthening its anti-corruption and trade control practices by adding lawyer David Lorello as a partner in its London office. Mr. Lorello is a US lawyer, and has been practicing in London for the last five years, with a broad practice spanning US, UK, and European international regulatory issues. This is Covington’s second high-profile addition in the past few months to its anti-corruption practice in Europe. Casey Cooper joined the firm’s London office in February.

Mr. Lorello has represented numerous multinational clients on issues arising under the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the UK Bribery Act and other related US, UK and global anti-corruption laws. He regularly assists clients in developing anti-corruption compliance programs and in managing enforcement matters. Mr. Lorello also has represented clients before the World Bank Sanctions Committee in defending against allegations of corrupt practices in World Bank procurement. He brings deep expertise in managing compliance investigations in the EU and globally.

“David will be a strong addition to our growing global anti-corruption practice,” said Timothy Hester, chair of Covington’s management committee. “He helps us meet our global clients’ need for senior lawyers who have successfully managed investigations in Europe and Asia by increasingly active US and UK agencies.”

Mr. Lorello regularly represents clients before the major agencies responsible for export controls and economic sanctions laws and regulations, both in the US and EU. He has advised on a range of commercial matters, including sovereign disputes, commercial trade disputes and insurance matters under the auspices of the International Chamber of Commerce, London Court of International Arbitration and other major arbitral organisations. Mr. Lorello also advises clients with regard to the European data protection laws, particularly concerning matters where data protection converges with anti-corruption and trade controls matters.

“I’m delighted to join Covington’s global anti-corruption practice, a group that is highly-regarded for assisting clients in navigating anti-corruption issues and compliance programs,” Mr. Lorello said. “I look forward to joining this well-respected team that includes lawyers who have served in both the UK and US governments and who have diverse expertise on anti-corruption issues.”

Mr. Lorello earned his undergraduate degree with high honors from Rutgers University. He earned his law degree from Columbia University School of Law, where he was a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar and served as articles editor for Columbia Human Rights Law Review.
