Covington kick-starts UK arbitration with Coudert hire

Covington & Burling’s London office is taking the plunge into international arbitration after recruiting a partner from Coudert Brothers.

Robert Pietrowski is stepping into the newly created role of head of the firm’s European arbitration practice.

Although arbitration is a large feature in Covington & Burling overseas offices, Pietrowski’s appointment is a first in London where he will be charged with building up the UK arbitration practice.
