Biography

An excellent draftsman...

Chambers USA 2006

Ty Covey is a highly regarded litigator whose practice focuses primarily on telecommunications, utilities, and related litigation. He has been described by Chambers USA 2007 as . . . a major player in the telecom field . . . [a ranking that is] reflected in his significant caseload dealing with issues as they relate to the 1996 Telecom Act.

As trial, appellate, and regulatory counsel for AT&T (formerly SBC Communications, previously Ameritech), Ty has provided authoritative legal guidance in connection with issues relating to the Telecommunications Act of 1996, including representation in state regulatory proceedings and state and federal court cases at both trial and appellate levels across the nation.

Ty has tried numerous contested hearings before state regulatory agencies and has handled several appeals of such cases in state and federal courts nationwide. In the area of telecommunications and administrative law, he has served as trial and regulatory counsel for AT&T and its operating entities in state commission arbitrations and in Section 251/252 and Section 271 proceedings before the FCC and in related state and federal court litigation. His principal focus in this context has been on deregulation, interconnection, unbundling, pricing and preemption matters.

Prior to joining Mayer Brown in 1996, Ty worked with another leading law firm. Between 1991 and 1993, he clerked as a Staff Attorney for the US Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.
