Former U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Chertoff starts The Chertoff Group, joins Covington & Burling

It’s been a busy last few weeks for former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff. Chertoff recently formed his own security consulting firm, The Chertoff Group. He’s also joined the law firm, Covington & Burling, as senior of counsel in Covington’s Washington office.

A former federal appellate judge and prosecutor, Chertoff will practice in Covington’s white-collar defense and investigations group. “What attracted me to Covington was the firm’s international reach, impressive list of clients and collegial atmosphere,” says Chertoff. “I am looking forward to working with clients that face complex criminal and regulatory enforcement investigations and other forms of legal crisis.”

At his advisory firm, Chertoff will advise corporate and government clients on security and risk management issues. Led by Chertoff and Chad Sweet, who served as Chertoff’s chief of staff during his tenure as Secretary of Homeland Security, the firm will assist clients with addressing threats related to terrorism, cyber security, fraud, border protection and supply chain security. Based in Washington, The Chertoff Group will also have offices in New York.
