Covington & Burling has created a new AI-focused role—director of artificial intelligence and e-discovery solutions—hiring Todd Itami in the position. Itami will lead Covington in its integration of AI and other technology tools at the firm, Covington said this week.

Convington is the latest law firm to add talent for an AI-focused position. Latham & Watkins, Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton and DLA Piper, among other firms, have filled newly created roles focused on AI geared to individuals with a computer science background, reported last month.
