November 16, 2010

WASHINGTON, DC, November 16, 2010 — Four Covington & Burling LLP lawyers have been recognized as the "2011 Lawyer of the Year" in their respective practice areas by The Best Lawyers in America. Only a single lawyer in each specialty in each community is honored.

The Covington lawyers recognized for this honor are:

Jonathan Blake, Washington Communications Lawyer of the Year.

David Goodwin, San Francisco Insurance Lawyer of the Year.

Gregg Levy, Washington Sports Lawyer of the Year.

Robert Sayler, Washington Insurance Lawyer of the Year.

Best Lawyers compiles its lists of outstanding attorneys by conducting peer-review surveys in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. The current, 17th edition of The Best Lawyers in America (2011) is based on more than 3.1 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers.

The lawyers being honored as “Lawyers of the Year” have received particularly high ratings in Best Lawyers’ surveys by earning a high level of respect among their peers for their abilities, professionalism, and integrity.

Covington received 138 individual mentions in 40 areas of law in the 2011 edition of The Best Lawyers in America. In addition, the firm received 33 first-tier practice rankings in the 2010 “Best Law Firms” survey by U.S. News Media Group and Best Lawyers. Covington’s first-tier national rankings place it among the top 10 firms nationwide and at the top of the first-tier rankings for Washington, DC.
