When Uber faced a crisis over the treatment of women in its workplaces, the ride-hailing giant turned to former Attorney General Eric Holder and Covington & Burling to conduct an investigation of its corporate culture. 

After interviewing more than 200 current and former employees and reviewing policies and other documents, Covington’s lawyers in 2017 issued 12 pages of recommendations, including bolstering training for senior managers and overhauling human resources practices. The review ultimately factored into the departure of Travis Kalanick as the company’s CEO.
