Leading Silicon Valley Dealmaker Joins Covington

September 12, 2016

SILICON VALLEYTom DeFilipps has joined Covington as a partner in the Silicon Valley office and will serve as chair of the West Coast Corporate practice. 

“Adding Tom to our Silicon Valley office is a major step forward in our plan for continued growth in California,” said Timothy Hester, Covington’s chair. “Tom has built a successful Northern California corporate practice over many years and has a demonstrated track record of building teams of lawyers in the competitive Silicon Valley market.”

Mr. DeFilipps’ practice covers a broad range of legal matters, including corporate formation, venture capital financings, public offerings, strategic partnerships and joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, and public company governance and disclosure. He represents both U.S. and foreign companies across many technology industries, including software, digital media, telecommunications, internet infrastructure, e-commerce, social networking, renewable energy, and life sciences. As company counsel, he has managed public offerings for numerous NASDAQ and NYSE-listed corporations. His start-up company clients have received funding from almost every significant venture capital investor in Silicon Valley.

“I am very pleased to join Covington’s growing California practice,” said Mr. DeFilipps. “I am particularly attracted to the firm’s culture of collaboration and sharing as well as its commitment to building its Bay Area offices and its corporate practice. I look forward to contributing to those efforts in every way possible.”

Mr. DeFilipps received A.B., B.S., and J.D. degrees from Stanford University. Upon graduation, he clerked for Judge Samuel Conti of the U.S. District Court in the Northern District of California.
