WASHINGTONJason Everett has joined Covington in its Public Policy practice. Mr. Everett’s arrival follows the recent additions of former U.S. Senator Jon Kyl, Broderick Johnson, and Samantha Clark to the firm’s Public Policy practice.

During his tenure as a senior aide to the Judiciary Committee, Mr. Everett played a critical role in building bipartisan coalitions which led to the passage of complex and significant reforms to the intellectual property ecosystem.

“Jason’s extensive experience in IP, antitrust law and policy development will be an important addition to our capabilities in helping clients address the multiple IP issues moving through Congress, the executive branch and the courts,” said Muftiah McCartin, co-chair of Covington’s Public Policy practice. “He is widely respected in Congress and in the business community for his in-depth knowledge of the range of IP issues and how those issues affect the world of IP and business.”

“I look forward to joining one of the most respected public policy teams in Washington and focusing on intellectual property and related policy areas to help clients navigate and shape global policy developments,” said Mr. Everett.
