SAN FRANCISCO, December 20, 2013 — Covington & Burling advised Emeryville, Calif.-based Aspera, Inc. in its sale to IBM.

The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter 2014. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The Covington team included Bruce Deming, Jonas Marson, Caleb Langston, Robert Wu and Neel Rane (corporate) and James Dean (antitrust).
