Covington Named to The National Law Journal's Appellate Hot List

November 7, 2017

WASHINGTONThe National Law Journal has named Covington to its “Appellate Hot List” for the seventh time. The 2017 special report features an “elite group of lawyers and law firms that posted hard-fought wins at the U.S. Supreme Court or in federal circuit courts.”

In its profile of the firm, The National Law Journal highlights Covington’s victory in Meoli v. The Huntington National Bank, a case arising from a massive Ponzi scheme. The case was significant not only in light of the amount of money at stake, but also because the lower court ruling exposed financial institutions to enormous liability from customers who enter bankruptcy proceedings. Robert Long, co-chair of Covington’s Appellate practice, credits the firm’s collaboration for its success in this and other cases.

“Covington relies on extensive collaboration among our appellate lawyers and lawyers with relevant subject-matter expertise,” Long said. “This approach often gives us a significant advantage in cases involving complex statutory and regulatory issues.”

Covington’s Appellate practice includes more than 90 lawyers and draws on the expertise of a former U.S. court of appeals judge, a former U.S. district judge, four former Assistants to the Solicitor General of the United States, 18 former Supreme Court clerks, and former law clerks from every federal court of appeals. Covington lawyers have argued more than 50 cases in the U.S. Supreme Court and hundreds of cases in the federal and state appellate courts.
