We help clients navigate issues at the intersection of law and policy around the world.

Our clients benefit from the experience of our more than 120 former government officials, diplomats, and regulators.

Covington’s distinctively collaborative culture allows us to act as one team globally.


For more than a decade, Covington has worked to establish an India practice and has been involved in a number of significant matters in India. We have represented U.S., European and Indian clients on a variety of India-related projects, including mergers and acquisitions, project financings, joint ventures and other corporate matters, trade and regulatory matters, and investigations. Our lawyers have also been involved in international arbitrations on behalf of and against Indian parties.

Covington’s practice is distinctive in that our clients include an even mix of major Indian companies and companies based in the U.S. and Europe; we do not focus exclusively on in-bound transactions. Our experience in representing Indian clients has given us unique insights and access to senior decision-makers in India’s largest and most prestigious companies. That experience and understanding of the Indian business and regulatory environment, together with the close relationships we have developed, enable us to provide timely, practical and effective advice on India-related matters for all our clients.

Our practice has enabled us to work with a number of leading India-based law firms, and we have developed close working relationships with India's most distinguished law firms giving our clients resources in all of the major cities in India, such as Mumbai, New Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai, Kolkata (Calcutta), among others. These prestigious firms have practices that cover a number of areas, including arbitration and litigation; banking; capital markets; corporate and commercial; investment funds; information technology; infrastructure and project finance; intellectual property; labor and employment; real estate; tax and trade. Covington works with these firms on a number of client matters and is well positioned to provide seamless advice on matters that require both a U.S./European legal perspective and an Indian legal perspective.

Covington’s India practice is also distinctive in that we often advise clients on matters of public policy relating to India. Our advice and representation in this area covers matters of international trade and investment, foreign assistance, intellectual property rights, trade controls, and competition law. This aspect of the practice draws on our offices around the world, as well as alliances we have developed with international consulting firms and public policy firms that have deep experience in India.
