In a sign that tax firms are snapping up government expertise ahead of a turbulent year in the US, Covington has hired former US Senate Finance Committee tax counsel Ed McLellan.

At Covington, he will be a part of the tax and public policy and government affairs practice groups. His tax knowledge covers international and domestic corporate taxation, accounting methods, redomiciliations, financial services, capital gains, dividend taxation, financial products, REITs and corporate integration.

In private practice, McLellan most recently worked for PwC, joining in 2007. His first job after leaving government in 2005 came when he joined Alston & Bird. Earlier in his career he worked for Baker & Mckenzie, KPMG and in-house.
