WASHINGTON, DC, September 21, 2012 — LawFuel.com – The American Law Firm Newswire – For the seventh consecutive year, Working Mother magazine has named Covington & Burling as one of the “100 Best Companies” in the nation.

This is the 27th year Working Mother has recognized organizations for their initiatives.
Carol Evans, president of Working Mother Media commented: “This year’s ‘100 Best Companies’ are leading the way for the rest of the nation.
