National Law Journal Names Covington to "Pro Bono Hot List"

May 7, 2019

LOS ANGELESFor the second consecutive year, The National Law Journal has named Covington to its "Pro Bono Hot List." The 2019 special report recognizes the lawyers and law firms who "have used their legal expertise to take on some of the biggest issues of our time."

In its profile of the firm, The National Law Journal highlights Covington's pro bono efforts, led by Los Angeles partner Mitchell Kamin, in suing the U.S. Department of Justice on behalf of the City of Los Angeles to prevent the federal government from requiring assistance with immigration enforcement as a condition of grants. These federal actions threatened to reduce or eliminate vital funding, and also to undermine longstanding policies on how L.A.’s police engage with its immigrant community.

The Covington team, with lawyers in the firm's Los Angeles and Washington office, included, in addition to Mr. Kamin, Beth Brinkmann, David Zionts, Neema Sahni, Jessica Hanson, and Ivano Ventresca.
