Covington’s Trooboff Receives ABA International Law Award


WASHINGTON, DC, April 16, 2010 — Peter Trooboff was presented the Leonard J. Theberge Award for Private International Law by the American Bar Association Section of International Law last night during the Section’s Spring Meeting in New York. The award, given annually, honors Mr. Trooboff’s “distinguished, long-standing contributions to the development of private international law.”

Mr. Trooboff has practiced in the field of international law as a partner and senior counsel at Covington & Burling for more than 35 years, advising on a wide array of international law, litigation, and arbitration issues. In the international trade and investment field, he has counseled clients with regulatory, compliance, investigation, and enforcement issues arising under US foreign trade controls, including those administered by the Commerce, Treasury, State, and Energy Departments. Mr. Trooboff has also been heavily involved in international arbitral proceedings arising from claims based on international law, including principles of state responsibility.

"Peter is one of those rare lawyers who is recognized not only as a first-rate practitioner in the international field, but also as a scholar and statesman in the international legal community,” said John Veroneau, former Deputy USTR and vice chair of Covington’s international practice, in congratulating Mr. Trooboff.
