WASHINGTON, DC, March 26, 2014 — Aaron Cooper, special counsel in Covington’s public policy and government affairs practice, received an Outstanding Achievement in Intellectual Property Award from Managing Intellectual Property magazine. The award recognizes Mr. Cooper’s significant contributions to the intellectual property community. Prior to rejoining Covington last fall, Mr. Cooper served as the Chief Counsel for Intellectual Property and Antitrust Law for Chairman Patrick Leahy on the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee. Mr. Cooper was responsible for all aspects of Chairman Leahy’s intellectual and antitrust initiatives, including developing and implementing the legislative strategy for passage of the Leahy-Smith America Invents Act of 2011, which brought the most comprehensive change to the nation’s patent laws in more than 60 years. Mr. Cooper was also responsible for drafting and helping secure passage of the Satellite Television Extension and Localism Act, the Theft of Trade Secrets Clarification Act, and numerous other IP laws enacted over the last several years. Mr. Cooper began his career as an associate at Covington in 2001. He develops and implements short and long term policy objectives in the fields of intellectual property, antitrust, communications law, and related areas. The award was presented yesterday at Managing Intellectual Property’s North America awards dinner at the Willard InterContinental in Washington, D.C. Mr. Cooper was also appointed this week to serve as Vice Chair of the U.S. Patent Law Committee of the Intellectual Property Owners Association.
