Paid to persuade

March 25, 2019, The Law Society Gazette

Sebastian Vos, Francis Maude, and Erika Mann are quoted in The Law Society Gazette regarding Covington’s expansion of public policy work in Europe.


Mr. Vos says, “The firm’s USP is the sheer number of former senior diplomats in our midst, on both sides of the Atlantic, as well as in Asia and Africa.” He adds, what clients “value most is the combination of law and policy that we are able to offer. Having a team that can analyse a regulatory issue from a legal as well as a policy perspective and then draft and propose amendments in a compelling way is seen as a real benefit.”


Mr. Maude says, “I see policy work carried out by firms such as Covington as an integral part of making sure that the legislation that is implemented actually works.”


Erika Mann adds, “The pace of technological development nowadays far exceeds the speed of regulation. Covington’s public policy team is here to help industry ensure that an effective dialogue is maintained with regulators, and that issues are considered from multiple perspectives.”
