Covington adds to M&A tech practice

February 15, 2019, Global Data Review

Denny Kwon and Tom DeFilipps spoke with Global Data Review on Mr. Kwon’s move to Covington.


Mr. Kwon told GDR that for him, Covington was a natural fit in light of the increased prominence of regulatory issues in M&A transactions and the firm’s “incredibly broad” array of practices. He said that data usage and privacy issues are becoming increasingly commonplace in his practice, particularly for technology companies. “It used to be the case that the focal points in M&A transactions related to IP and employees, but now there’s a third leg of that stool: privacy.” He adds, “Covington's strong team of corporate lawyers, reputation for excellence, and collegial atmosphere, as well as the firm's focus on expanding its Northern California presence, are what attracted me to the firm. I look forward to working with my colleagues to help drive the buy-side M&A practice with both technology and life sciences companies.”


Mr. DeFilipps noted that Mr. Kwon’s arrival “greatly enhanced” Covington’s ability to continue to develop M&A relationships with technology and life sciences clients on the U.S. West Coast.
