Peter Nickles will be rejoining Covington & Burling, the firm where he worked for four decades before leaving to serve as general counsel to D.C.'s former Mayor Adrian Fenty and then as the city's attorney general.

He'll also join former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff and former NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue among others in helping the firm create a new strategic risk and crisis management practice to assist national and international businesses.
