As a former senior White House and Department of Justice Official, Stacey Grigsby combines high-level government experience with an understanding of corporate challenges to represent clients in significant litigation and sensitive investigations. Stacey recently rejoined the firm after serving as Deputy Counsel to President Biden. In the White House Counsel’s Office, Stacey advised the President and senior White House officials on a range of civil rights issues, worked closely with senior DOJ officials and Cabinet agency general counsel, and led interagency consideration of legal issues related to high-profile litigation, legislation, and regulations.

Stacey is a nationally recognized litigator, who has served as a principal lawyer in cases before numerous courts, including presenting ten oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals. She also represents clients in matters involving pre- and post-award bid protests, government takings, contract disputes and claims, and investigations of alleged misconduct and fraud. Stacey also regularly litigates matters arising under: the Contract Disputes Act (CDA), the False Claims Act (FCA), the Tucker Act, and state unfair competition laws.

As co-chair of Covington’s Government Litigation practice, Stacey represents clients across numerous industries in a range of federal and state government-facing litigation proceedings. Stacey draws upon her recent role as a senior litigation strategist within the government and deep experience handling litigation in private practice, to represent clients in government litigation matters.

Stacey is also a senior member of the firm’s Institutional Culture and Social Responsibility Practice, serving our clients facing increasing scrutiny from internal and external stakeholders related to their workplace cultures and commitment to promoting gender and racial equity. Stacey is an integral resource for our clients in this space, given her unique experience at the center of government policy and decision-making on civil rights and related issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion. She was central to formulating the Administration’s strategy on reproductive rights in the wake of the Dobbs decision and its response to the Supreme Court’s Students for Fair Admissions decision on affirmative action in higher education.

Earlier in her career, Stacey served for eight years at the U.S. Department of Justice, as a trial attorney, senior trial attorney, and later as Counsel to the Associate Attorney General. As Counsel to the Associate AG, she advised on a diverse set of department-wide and interagency issues, ranging from civil litigation to proposed regulations. She assisted in negotiations to resolve a number of civil fraud investigations, resulting in historic settlements.
