LONDON — Carlo Kostka has joined Covington’s global financial institutions practice resident in the firm’s London office.
Most recently Mr. Kostka served as co-head of UniCredit's legal department, where he was responsible for international legal operations, including all legal matters related to the corporate and investment banking division, significant litigation, strategic transactions, foreign subsidiary banks and the Central and Eastern Europe Division.
“The last decade has been a particularly turbulent time for the financial services industry,” said Bruce Bennett, partner and head of Covington’s financial services industry group. “Our clients value Covington’s holistic approach to the sector, combining expertise in regulatory, M&A, corporate finance, litigation and investigations, compliance, corporate governance and government affairs, as well as our ability to advise on complex cross-border matters.”
Chris Walter, managing partner of Covington’s London office, commented: “We are thrilled that Carlo has decided to join our European team. Financial services has long been a focus for a number of our practices in Europe and the US, including our white collar and investigations practice, corporate, public affairs and our various leading regulatory groups. We are confident that Carlo’s deep industry experience will be of considerable interest to our clients.”
Mr. Kostka added: “I have long admired Covington, which has a strong reputation among banks and other financial institutions in key financial centres around the world, including London and New York. The firm’s global financial services practice is an excellent platform for my practice, and I look forward to joining the team.”
