From its offices in Beijing, Brussels, Dubai, Frankfurt, Johannesburg, London, Los Angeles, New York, Palo Alto, San Francisco, Seoul, Shanghai, and Washington, Covington practices as one firm, holding closely to core values that start with a deep commitment to its clients and the quality of its work on their behalf, and that include an emphasis on teamwork among its lawyers and other professionals and a belief in the obligation of lawyers to make legal services available to all who need them. Itslawyers are recognized nationally and internationally for their legal skills and the depth of their expertise. Many have served in senior government positions. Virtually all of them provide public service through pro bono representation. The diversity of its lawyers strengthens its ability to evaluate issues confronting its clients and to communicate effectively on their behalf in any setting. And because every client is a client of the firm, not of any specific lawyer, every client has the ability to call on any of its lawyers as needed.
