Covington’s Insurance Recovery Practice Wins Chambers Award for Excellence

June 11, 2012

WASHINGTON, DC, June 11, 2012 — Covington & Burling’s insurance practice won the 2012 Chambers USA Award for Excellence in Insurance, marking the fourth time the firm has received this honor in the six years it has been awarded.

The Award for Excellence, presented at Chambers USA’s annual awards dinner in New York City on June 7, was given to only one U.S. policyholder firm and coincided with the release of the Chambers USA 2012 guidebook. In connection with its awards ceremony, Chambers USA noted of Covington: “The foremost policyholder practice in the country remains at the very highest end of the American legal market. Its stellar reputation continues to evolve thanks to the dedication of some of the world's most prominent experts in the field from across the United States.”

“We are delighted by this recognition of our insurance recovery practice, one of the firm’s most dynamic and storied practices. Ultimately, this is a testament to the clients who have put their trust in us, and to the committed and creative work by the practice group’s lawyers,” said Timothy Hester, chair of Covington’s management committee.

In addition to receiving the Award for Excellence in Insurance, Covington’s policyholder insurance practice took top honors in the Chambers USA 2012 guidebook, which conferred on Covington alone its top-tier ranking nationally and in California and Washington. Along with the firm rankings, a dozen of Covington’s coverage lawyers were ranked individually for their work in Washington, California and/or nationally, including Don Brown, John Buchanan, Mitchell Dolin, Anna Engh, Marialuisa Gallozzi, Saul Goodman, David Goodwin, Bill Greaney, Larry Hobel, Georgia Kazakis, Ben Lenhart, and Bill Skinner. Five of the twelve most highly ranked policyholder lawyers nationally are Covington partners.

Covington’s insurance practice, with more than 100 lawyers, has a 30-year record of successfully assisting policyholders in maximizing their insurance coverage for a wide variety of contested claims. In addition to Chambers USA, Legal 500 and PLC also rank Covington as the top-ranked policyholder practice in the U.S.

In connection with last Thursday night’s awards ceremony, Covington was also shortlisted for Chambers USA Awards for Excellence in the fields of Antitrust, Employee Benefits, Intellectual Property, and International Trade.
