FEC General Counsel Herman Returns to Covington

June 5, 2013

WASHINGTON, DC, June 5, 2013 — Covington & Burling is pleased to announce that Federal Election Commission General Counsel Tony Herman is returning to the firm and will resume his practice in a wide range of commercial litigation matters.

“We are delighted to welcome Tony back to Covington,” said Timothy Hester, chair of the firm’s management committee. “Tony made many important contributions to the firm for many years, particularly as a civil litigator versed in a wide array of subject matter areas. He brings a combination of talent, energy and zest to every legal challenge and now returns after an admirable stint serving the public at the FEC.”

At the FEC, Mr. Herman was responsible for managing some 100 lawyers in the Office of General Counsel’s four divisions. He led a major restructuring of the office that resulted in improved efficiency and work quality. He also recruited top talent, including a senior trial lawyer from the Justice Department’s Public Integrity Division to head up the FEC’s Enforcement Division and a partner from a major law firm to serve as Deputy General Counsel.

“I enjoyed working at the FEC during an important juncture in the nation’s election cycle, but I look forward to returning to Covington, a truly unique and wonderful law firm,” Mr. Herman said.

A first-chair litigator and trial lawyer at Covington, Mr. Herman tried to verdict more than 20 cases, jury and non-jury, in federal and state courts and before arbitration panels throughout the United States. His broad ranging general litigation, arbitration and trial practice included intellectual property and technology litigation, employment litigation, FDA litigation, and general commercial litigation involving contracts, license agreements, and business torts.

Mr. Herman also built a reputation for pro bono work as the chair of Covington’s public service committee. He was named a ‘Champion’ by the Legal Times, received the prestigious Servant of Justice Award from the Legal Aid Society of the District of Columbia, and was awarded the Washington Business Journal’s Top Lawyer in Pro Bono award.
