January 22, 2013

NEW YORK, January 22, 2013 — William L. Sturman has joined Covington & Burling’s corporate practice as a partner, strengthening the firm’s private equity fund formation capabilities. He will be resident in Covington’s New York office.

Mr. Sturman counsels private equity fund sponsors and investors on a wide range of fund formation and regulatory issues. He has extensive experience advising on seeding arrangements for early generation funds and fund managers and investment professionals’ carried interest arrangements. Most recently, Mr. Sturman practiced as a private equity partner at another international law firm.

“Bill’s expertise in the area of fund formation will be an invaluable addition to our integrated private equity funds and transaction practice,” said Scott Smith, chair of Covington’s corporate practice. “We are very pleased to have him on board.”

Covington’s corporate practice covers a broad range of transactional and advisory work. With corporate lawyers in New York, Washington, London, California, China and Korea, the firm handles domestic, cross-border, and international matters worldwide. For the last six consecutive years, Covington has been named to Corporate Board Member magazine’s list of America’s top 25 national corporate law firms based on a comprehensive survey of general counsel at publicly traded companies.

Covington is an experienced and trusted advisor to private equity firms, hedge fund managers and other private fund sponsors and investment professionals, covering the full spectrum of practice disciplines and legal issues that define the investment fund legal landscape.

“Covington is a world class firm with world class resources, including tax, ERISA, regulatory, private equity transactions and funds expertise,” Mr. Sturman said. “I look forward to working with my new colleagues and firm clients on a variety of investment fund matters.”

Mr. Sturman received a bachelor’s degree from Boston College, a law degree from Suffolk University Law School and a master of laws from New York University School of Law.
