Covington’s Yaron Dori Assumes Role as FCBA President

7/1/2011

WASHINGTON, DC, July 1, 2011 — Covington & Burling LLP is pleased to announce that effective today Yaron Dori will assume the presidency of the Federal Communications Bar Association, the nation’s largest non-profit organization of communications lawyers and professionals.

Mr. Dori, co-chair of the firm’s communications and media practice group, has been active in the FCBA for nearly 15 years, serving multiple terms on its executive committee and serving as a founding co-chair of its privacy and data security committee. He will serve a one-year term as president.

Mr. Dori’s new position comes at a critical juncture for the communications industry.

“Our industry is pivoting away from traditionally regulated communication services and toward new technologies,” Mr. Dori said. “This transition raises the profile of important and evolving issues that are a growing part of the FCBA’s focus, such as spectrum policy, privacy and data security, and national security and supply chain management issues.”

The FCBA offers its 2,300 members unique opportunities to gain a deeper understanding of emerging trends in the communications industry by hosting a range of professional, social and educational activities. The association has ten chapters across the country and more than 30 committees that address a broad array of communication issues for lawyers and professionals.

Mr. Dori has been recognized by Chambers USA for his work in the telecom, broadcast & satellite regulatory arena. He represents clients before federal and state regulatory agencies and Congress in connection with policy issues under the Communications Act, the Federal Trade Commission Act and similar federal and state laws. He recently advised Microsoft Corp. on communications regulatory issues in connection with its acquisition of Skype Global S.à.r.l., a leading Internet communications company, for $8.5 billion.

Mr. Dori is the first Covington lawyer to preside over the FCBA since Jon Blake.

“Yaron carries on the tradition of Covington’s leadership in the FCBA and other media and technology organizations,” Mr. Blake said. “He has a deep knowledge and commitment to communications law, particularly as it rapidly adapts to new technologies and opportunities for new services.”
