Covington’s Bruce Deming “Attorney of the Year”

March 27, 2013

SAN FRANCISCO, March 27, 2013The Recorder, a leading California legal newspaper, has named Covington & Burling partner Bruce Deming as one of its “Attorneys of the Year” for 2012.

The winners were chosen based on their exceptional work handling “market-moving deals and industry shaping litigation” as well as achieving “precedent-setting outcomes” and “hard-fought wins that enriched their clients or kept them from life prison terms.”

Mr. Deming, a partner in Covington’s corporate practice, was recognized for his work representing Microsoft on multiple transactions over the past year. Mr. Deming led a team of Covington lawyers in two of the company’s most high-profile deals including representing Microsoft in its $1.1 billion purchase of approximately 925 AOL Inc. patents and patent applications and the company’s subsequent $550 million agreement with Facebook Inc. that assigned the social networking company the right to purchase a portion of the AOL patent portfolio.

Additionally, Mr. Deming was recognized for his advocacy work regarding LGBT civil rights. The publication noted his service as co-chair of the board of Lambda Legal--the oldest national organization pursuing high-impact litigation, public education and advocacy on behalf of equality and civil rights for lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgender people and people with HIV.

Mr. Deming has a broad-based corporate and finance transactional and advisory practice, with significant experience handling domestic and cross-border mergers and acquisitions, patent acquisitions/monetizations, venture capital transactions, project finance and capital markets activities.
