The revolving door continues to turn at the Washington law firm Covington & Burling.

Gary Guzy, recently deputy director and general counsel of the White House Council on Environmental Quality and a former general counsel of the Environmental Protection Agency, was named a partner this week.

He’s the latest in a long line of former government officials at the firm.

Lanny Breuer was named vice chairman earlier this year after heading the Justice Department’s criminal division. His boss at Justice, Eric Holder, is a former Covington & Burling partner.

Former Homeland Security Director Michael Chertoff is of counsel. As shown in the interactive Muckety map above, others at the firm include former officials with Treasury, State, Office of the U.S. Trade Representative and Congress.

Covington is one of Washington’s top lobby shops, bringing in nearly $10.8 million last year in lobbying fees.

Among its major lobby clients: Qualcomm, PHARMA, BP and the National Football League.
