WASHINGTON � The former head of the National Football League, Paul Tagliabue, has rejoined Washington’s Covington & Burling as senior of counsel in the firm’s home and New York offices. Tagliabue, who served as NFL Commissioner from 1989 until 2006, will advise clients on strategic matters in communications/media, technology and international sectors. A former Covington partner, Tagliabue will continue as a business advisor to the NFL. During his tenure, the League grew from 28 to 32 teams, supported construction of more than 20 NFL team stadiums, and secured the largest television contracts in entertainment history. Before joining the NFL, Tagliabue represented the League and other clients for 20 years at Covington, where he served on the firm’s management committee. Since stepping down as NFL Commissioner, Tagliabue has been serving on the Georgetown University board of directors where he is a member of the Board’s executive committee and involved with Medical Center affairs. He also chairs the board of the Graduate Institute of International Relations and Commerce of the State University of New York (SUNY) in Manhattan, serves on the boards of a number of not-for-profits, and is a member of the Council for Foreign Relations. “We are very pleased that Paul has chosen to return to the firm,” said Stuart Stock, chair of the firm’s management committee. “He has been considering a wide array of opportunities. The standard that Paul set at the NFL allowed a very broad audience to appreciate his gifts both as a person and as a leader.” Tagliabue said, “I am delighted to rejoin Covington, and excited about working with former colleagues and the many talented lawyers who have joined the firm in the past two decades. They have continued the firm’s extraordinary traditions while expanding the firm’s practice and client base in many areas, including those driven by technology and business innovation.”
