Covington Ranked World’s Top Life Sciences Firm for Fourth Year


WASHINGTON, DC, April 13, 2009 — For the fourth consecutive year, Covington & Burling LLP has been awarded worldwide first place firm rankings by the Practical Law Company in both the Life Sciences Industry and Life Sciences Regulatory Super League categories. The rankings are published in PLC’s Cross-border Quarterly for April-June 2009.

In honoring Covington, the editors write: “[T]he firm is equipped to offer industry clients advice on all aspects of life sciences-related legal matters. Its leading US and European practices give the firm’s regulatory experts an unrivalled presence in the world’s most important markets. With 23 recommended lawyers, the firm has strength in depth across departments and seems well placed for the future with a strong group of experienced younger lawyers in place.”

The Super League law firm rankings are based on an independent survey of industry and private practice lawyers. The overall life sciences rankings assess a broad range of legal services, including regulatory, intellectual property, corporate and commercial, patent counseling, product liability, and competition/antitrust.

Covington’s life sciences group, with more than 250 lawyers, integrates the firm’s extensive transactional, regulatory, litigation, and intellectual property capabilities to meet the specialized needs of life sciences companies worldwide.
