SAN FRANCISCO — Covington & Burling and a group of its partners has agreed to pay close to $5 million to the Heller Ehrman estate as part of a preliminary settlement of claims stemming from work that came from Heller as that firm was dissolving.

Under the agreement, Covington would pay $4 million to settle these Jewel v. Boxer claims by this fall, while a group of former Heller IP partners who joined Covington in 2008 would add about $1 million, according to court documents filed July 20 in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in San Francisco.
