Covington has been ranked among the top five law firms in the National Law Journal’s Influence50 survey for the breadth of its legislative and regulatory experience. Our ability to achieve success for our clients is the result of years of experience perfecting an understanding of the moving parts of the legislative process, involving committees, the leadership, intra- and inter- party relationships, the interplay between the House and Senate, and appreciation of the ways in which the executive branch can influence the legislature.
