WASHINGTON, DC, April 11, 2012 — Law360 has named Covington & Burling partner Marney Cheek a recipient of its “Rising Star” award in the international trade category. The award honors attorneys under the age of 40 whose accomplishments in major client matters belie their age, according to Law360.
In an April 10 profile of Ms. Cheek, Law360 noted her “expertise in trade and IP issues, advising Microsoft, the American Chemical Society and major pharmaceutical sector companies,” as well as her work “advising clients on two important recent developments in world trade: Russia's plans to join the WTO later this year and the trade implications of the reshaping of North Africa after the Arab Spring.”
“I am honored to be named a Law360 Rising Star in international trade,” said Ms. Cheek. “International trade and investment issues are increasingly important to a range of companies operating around the world, and we are proud of the results we can achieve for our clients.”
Ms. Cheek is vice-chair of Covington’s trade and international policy practice and serves as co-chair of the firm’s Women's Forum. She also is a term member of the Council on Foreign Relations. Prior to joining the firm, Ms. Cheek served as associate general counsel at the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative.
Law360 received more than 1,000 submissions for its “Rising Stars” series. Winners were selected by a team of eight editors based on the strength of their accomplishments in their respective practice groups thus far in their careers.
