Jay Alexander Joins Covington’s Intellectual Property Practice


WASHINGTON, DC, October 24, 2012 Jay Alexander has joined Covington & Burling’s intellectual property group as of counsel, resident in the firm’s Washington office. He will focus on patent infringement cases before the U.S. International Trade Commission and the federal courts.

An intellectual property litigator with more than 20 years of experience, Mr. Alexander has handled patent cases involving a diverse array of technologies, as well as cases involving trademarks, trade secrets, unfair competition and copyright issues. He has expertise in strategic counseling, corporate transactions and patent prosecution. Mr. Alexander has handled litigation before the U.S. District Courts, the U.S. International Trade Commission, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit and the U.S. Supreme Court.

“We are looking forward, in particular, to Jay’s contributions to the firm’s thriving ITC Section 337 practice,” said Covington partner Sturgis Sobin, head of the firm’s ITC group. “There is a premium on depth of expertise in a fast-paced, high-stakes forum like the ITC. As a seasoned litigator with prior ITC experience and a track record of handling cases spanning a range of complex technologies, Jay will be a valuable addition to what is already a strong bench.”

“I am excited to be joining Covington’s thriving patent litigation group,” said Mr. Alexander. “I have been greatly impressed with the high caliber of my new colleagues at all experience levels. When you meet them, it is easy to see why this is such a successful practice group.”

With more with than 140 attorneys, Covington’s IP practice combines a deep understanding of patent, copyright, trade secret, and trademark law with knowledge of our clients’ industries. This year the National Law Journal named Covington to its inaugural “Intellectual Property Hot List.”

Mr. Alexander earned a bachelor’s degree from Northwestern University and a law degree from Northwestern University School of Law. He is a former law clerk to Judge Pauline Newman, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
