Jon Kyl Returns to Covington

January 7, 2019

WASHINGTON—Former U.S. Senator Jon Kyl has re-joined Covington in its Public Policy practice. Senator Kyl will focus on matters of policy and strategy for the firm’s clients.

“We are extremely proud of Jon’s service to the country and the people of Arizona and delighted that he has rejoined us,” said Timothy Hester, Covington’s chair. “Given his profile and depth of experience in Washington, we expect he can make important contributions in a range of matters, particularly for clients in the technology, life sciences, and defense sectors who may face numerous policy challenges in Congress and the executive branch.”

Senator Kyl was a member of Covington from March 2013 until early September 2018, when he was appointed to fill the vacancy created by the death of his longtime colleague Senator John McCain. He concluded his service in the Senate when the 115th Congress adjourned. Before joining Covington in 2013, Senator Kyl served 18 years in the U.S. Senate and eight years in the U.S. House of Representatives. He was elected unanimously by his colleagues in 2008 to serve as Republican Whip, the second-highest position in the Senate Republican leadership, a position he held until his retirement in 2013.

“Jon’s many years in Congress offer our clients a unique perspective as they face a new set of challenges in a divided Congress,” said Muftiah McCartin, co-chair of the firm’s Public Policy practice. “We expect complex legislation and increased congressional scrutiny and investigations of many industries in the year ahead.”
