Covington Named Among Top Five Investigations Practices Globally

October 23, 2020

WASHINGTON—Global Investigations Review has ranked Covington among its top five in its annual GIR 30, a list of the leading global firms best suited to handle sophisticated cross-border government-led and internal investigations.

GIR noted that Covington has “won praise from multinational clients for its ability to handle a wide variety of white-collar matters across the globe” and has “helped several clients avoid penalties in high-profile investigations,” including securing significant prosecutorial declinations for Uber, Alexion, and Roche.

Covington is recognized as a premier white collar defense and investigations firm with lawyers that possess an unsurpassed depth of expertise in the full range of white collar issues. The firm’s lawyers have decades of experience with the regulators and enforcement authorities with whom its clients interact. With one of the largest white collar practices in the world, Covington is one of the few firms with lawyers who recently held senior positions in the U.S. Department of Justice. The team also includes former senior SEC officials, a former Secretary of Homeland Security, three former heads of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, former federal judges, numerous former federal prosecutors with extensive criminal trial experience, as well as former senior Treasury Department, State Department, and EU officials.
