Covington’s Chinoy Elected President of ITC Trial Lawyers Association

November 14, 2011

WASHINGTON, DC, November 14, 2011 — Covington & Burling LLP is pleased to announce that Alexander Chinoy has been elected president of the International Trade Commission Trial Lawyers Association for the 2012 term. The association is the primary bar association for attorneys involved in Section 337 litigation before the International Trade Commission.

Mr. Chinoy has been an officer in the ITC Trial Lawyers Association since 2007. He previously was an at-large member of the association’s executive committee. He has been involved in the association’s activities, including efforts to ascertain and communicate the views of the bar on legislative and regulatory developments that may affect the Section 337 practice. He also served as lead editor of its 337 Reporter, and has been involved with the highly regarded Summer Associate Edition of the Reporter.

Mr. Chinoy has been involved with more than 20 Section 337 investigations. He has guided clients through every phase of 337 litigation, from pre-complaint counseling to appeal of ITC determinations to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, and has significant experience with U.S. Customs and Border Protection enforcement of Section 337 exclusion orders.

“I am honored to have been elected president of the ITC Trial Lawyers Association, particularly during what continues to be a dynamic period for Section 337,” Mr. Chinoy said. “In recent years the ITC has exploded in popularity as a forum for litigating bet-the-company IP disputes involving imported products. At the same time, the boundaries of Section 337 continue to be refined, as we confront important questions about what types of entities should be permitted to take advantage of the ITC’s protections for domestic industries. I look forward to serving the ITCTLA as president, and to doing what I can to help guide the bar through these exciting times.”

Covington’s Section 337 Investigations practice has been recognized as a leading practice by such publications as Chambers and Legal 500. In 2010, Covington was named “ITC Litigation Firm of the Year” by Managing Intellectual Property.
