Former Assistant U.S. Attorney Joins Covington in Los Angeles

March 7, 2019

LOS ANGELESRyan Weinstein has joined Covington in the firm’s Commercial Litigation practice in Los Angeles. Mr. Weinstein most recently served as an Assistant United States Attorney in the Central District of California.

At the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Mr. Weinstein prosecuted and tried dozens of criminal cases, briefed and argued numerous appeals before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, and led state and federal agencies in investigating a variety of criminal offenses, including money laundering, bank fraud, tax fraud and evasion, mail and wire fraud, immigration fraud, drug trafficking, and government procurement fraud.

“Ryan has earned a reputation as a dynamic trial lawyer with years of experience both as a prosecutor and in private practice,” said Mitchell Kamin, co-chair of the firm’s Commercial Litigation practice. “Ryan adds significant depth and strength to our West Coast litigation practice, and his expertise and counsel will be a tremendous benefit to the firm’s clients.”

Mr. Weinstein will represent clients in a wide range of high-stakes civil and criminal disputes, including complex commercial litigation, intellectual property matters, securities litigation, corporate control contests, white-collar criminal defense, internal investigations, and SEC enforcement actions. He received his B.S. in Journalism and Economics from Northwestern University and his J.D. from Stanford Law School.

“I was drawn to the firm's culture of collaboration and teamwork, the ability to draw upon the full resources of the firm to address the needs of its clients, and the particular strength of the firm’s Los Angeles office,” said Mr. Weinstein. “I look forward to working with my colleagues across the firm to help us grow our litigation practice and deliver value to the firm’s clients.”

The American Lawyer named Covington as its California Litigation Department of the Year. The award recognizes the law firm whose California litigators have delivered outstanding service —and wins — for their clients in the year's most demanding litigation matters.
