Gov't Contracts Group Of The Year: Covington & Burling

January 24, 2018, Law360

Covington was named a 2017 Government Contracts Practice Group of the Year by Law360. According to Fred Levy, the group is unique due to the breadth and depth of experience that its attorneys have, and its seamless interaction with other top-tier practice groups at the firm. “I think we’re a very cohesive practice group,” he says. “It really incentivizes our lawyers to utilize everyone in the firm to the clients’ advantage."

Commenting on a major case from the past year, Jay Carey points to the $6.8 billion procurement for UnitedHealth and its affiliates. “For me that really stands out,” he says. “Both because the client won the contract and it was a significant procurement.”

Although the group had a number of notable litigation victories, Jennifer Plitsch says she considers it a victory when they keep clients out of investigations and litigation over contracts. That way clients don’t have to go through the expensive, protracted process of suing the government for money. The group achieved that goal many times last year, she adds.
