Peter Lichtenbaum, who most recently was the top compliance officer for defense contractor BAE Systems Inc., has joined Covington & Burling as a partner in the firm’s Washington D.C. office.

According to a firm press release, Lichtenbaum will concentrate in the firm’s international trade and finance practice, working in the defense, homeland and national security industry group.

“Peter’s senior-level positions at both the Commerce Department and BAE Systems have provided him with exceptional experience working with defense contractors and other companies active in the defense, aerospace, intelligence and homeland security fields,” said Peter Flanagan, a partner in Covington’s international practice and a member of the firm’s management committee. “In particular, his expertise and senior policy experience with US trade control matters will be a tremendous asset to our international trade and national security practices.”


Prior to his stint at BAE Systems, a U.S. subsidiary of the world’s largest defense contractor, Lichtenbaum served in the Commerce Department as the assistant secretary of commerce for export administration from 2003 to 2006.
