Covington Named ‘Media & Entertainment Group of the Year’

January 28, 2013

WASHINGTON, DC, January 28, 2013 Law360 named Covington one of the top five “Media & Entertainment Practice Groups of the Year.”

In a profile highlighting Covington’s communications and media-related work, Law360 noted the group’s recent victory for independent television networks. The firm convinced the Federal Communications Commission that Comcast Cable Communications LLC discriminated against Tennis Channel Inc. by placing the channel on a more expensive cable-sports package. The decision marked the first time an independent programming network has won a discrimination case against a multi-channel program distributor at the FCC. The publication also cited the firm’s work for clients such as Russian media magnate Vladimir Gusinsky, CBS Television Network Affiliates Association, the NBC Television Affiliates, and Microsoft Corp.

“The practice was able to display its full skills and abilities this year,” said Yaron Dori, co-chair of Covington’s communications and media practice group. “We had substantial litigation projects, substantial regulatory projects and handled significant transactions.”

After reviewing more than 550 submissions, a committee of Law360 editors selected five winners for each practice area. Law firms were selected based on the significance, size and complexity of the matters they handled for clients over the past year.
