Covington & Burling LLP


In an increasingly regulated world, we have an exceptional ability to help clients navigate their most complex business problems. Our distinctively collaborative culture allows us to be truly one team globally, drawing on the diverse experience of lawyers and advisors across the firm by seamlessly sharing insight and expertise. 

What sets us apart is our ability to combine the tremendous strength in our litigation, investigations, and corporate practices with deep knowledge of policy and policymakers, and one of the world’s leading regulatory practices. This enables us to create novel solutions to our clients’ toughest problems, successfully try their toughest cases and deliver commercially practical advice of the highest quality. 

Our anti-corruption advice and investigative counsel is sought out by the world’s most sophisticated business organizations. With roots in the conception of the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), Covington has been a leading voice on U.S. legislation and policy relating to anti-corruption enforcement and compliance, as well as on new legislation around the world, including the U.K. Bribery Act.

As the home to a former U.S. Attorney General, three former heads of the U.S. Department of Justice’s Criminal Division, and numerous other former high-ranking prosecutors, Covington has unmatched expertise in guiding clients safely through this prevailing climate of heightened enforcement. 

Across both counselling and investigations, our anti-corruption team is able to provide “24-hour” real-time support to our clients with seamless coordination across the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Africa. Our team has handled matters throughout the world, including in Brazil, China, Eastern Europe, Germany, India, Indonesia, Mexico, the Middle East, Russia, South Korea, and the UK.
