Covington Shortlisted for Managing Intellectual Property Awards on Both Sides of Atlantic

April 2, 2010

WASHINGTON, DC, April 2, 2010 — Covington & Burling LLP has been nominated for two 2010 Managing Intellectual Property awards. In North America, the firm is a finalist for the ITC Litigation award. In Europe, the firm is on the shortlist for the New Media/Internet award.

Covington’s IP litigators have appeared in more than 65 Section 337 cases before the U.S. International Trade Commission, including some of the largest and most high-profile matters to have come before the ITC. The group has represented numerous U.S. and Asian clients in the semiconductor/electronics, software, chemical/life sciences and media/telecom industries, among others, in seeking remedies for unfair practices related to imports into the United States.

In Europe, Covington’s intellectual property practice has long been a leader in Internet enforcement, as well as legislative advocacy on behalf of the technology and media industries. The firm has implemented programs for the enforcement and enhancement of IP rights in some 60 countries worldwide, and has been devising and executing strategies to combat online piracy and fraud for nearly a decade for many of the world’s leading companies.

Managing Intellectual Property is an international magazine for intellectual property owners. Its annual awards recognize firms worldwide that had an outstanding year in their particular practice or jurisdiction, and are the result of six months of research conducted among IP owners and professionals.

The 2010 North American Award Ceremony will convene on April 15 at the Four Seasons in Washington, D.C. The 2010 Pan-Europe Award Ceremony will be held on April 20 at The Dorchester in London.
