Leading M&A Lawyer Joins Covington

February 28, 2017

NEW YORKTom Kuhn has joined Covington’s Mergers and Acquisitions practice, and will focus on media and technology transactions. He will be based in the firm’s New York office.

Mr. Kuhn is a seasoned M&A deal maker, with experience both as a lawyer and as a banker. He also advises on corporate governance matters and provides strategic counseling. He has extensive experience with a broad range of public and private companies, having previously served as SVP and General Counsel of USA Networks Inc. (now IAC) and as a Managing Director at Allen & Company, a New York-based merchant bank. His clients include public companies, private equity investors, entrepreneurs, and senior executives.

Since 2008, Mr. Kuhn has been a Director of ILG, Inc., a publicly traded travel and leisure provider, where he is also Chair of the Nominating and Governance Committee and a member the Audit and Executive Committees of the Board. Earlier in his career, he practiced at Howard Smith & Levin, which merged with Covington almost twenty years ago.

“Having practiced with Tom and served as his outside M&A lawyer, I have tremendous respect for his skills and abilities as a deal maker,” said Scott Smith, chair of Covington’s Corporate practice. “Tom’s experience as a General Counsel and investment banker adds perspective to his deal making ability, and his return to Covington adds an experienced board room advisor to our already deep governance team.” 

“I am delighted to be reuniting with former colleagues and working with them and others at Covington on the opportunities ahead,” said Mr. Kuhn. “I am joining a first rate M&A group and look forward to contributing to the firm’s practices.”

Mr. Kuhn received his J.D. from The George Washington University Law School in 1988 and earned his B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania in 1984. Mr. Kuhn served as a law clerk to the late Hon. Richard J. Cardamone of the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
