Wade Ackerman and Aaron Lewis Named Among LA's Most Influential Diverse Lawyers

February 6, 2018

LOS ANGELES—The Los Angeles Business Journal recognized Wade Ackerman and Aaron Lewis in its second annual list of the most influential diverse lawyers in Los Angeles. The list recognizes 50 "stellar diverse lawyers in the LA region."

In Mr. Ackerman’s profile, the Business Journal emphasized his work in the FDA regulatory space. The profile noted that “with a combination of substantive life sciences expertise, a high profile in the industry, and significant federal government experience, Ackerman has a unique practice for the Southern California legal market.”

Mr. Ackerman helps companies address FDA regulatory and policy issues, informed by his experience both at the FDA and on the Hill. Until June 2016, Mr. Ackerman served as Senior FDA Counsel to the U.S. Senate Health, Education, Labor & Pensions (HELP) Committee. Before that Senate role, he served for over five years as Associate Chief Counsel in FDA’s Office of the Chief Counsel. Mr. Ackerman advises clients across a range of sectors regulated by the FDA, including drugs and biologics, cosmetics, medical devices and diagnostics, and digital health products. He also serves as one of the leaders of Covington’s multidisciplinary Digital Health Initiative.

2018 marks the second time Mr. Lewis has appeared on the list. The Los Angeles Business Journal focused on his role on the highly publicized investigation into Uber’s workplace environment, highlighting how as a leader of the fact investigation, his work “informed more than 40 recommendations regarding the company and its policies, which Uber’s board of directors adopted unanimously.”

Mr. Lewis represents businesses and individuals in internal investigations, government enforcement matters, and complex commercial litigation. He previously served as a Counsel to Attorney General Eric Holder, whom he advised on a range of enforcement issues related to intellectual property protections, national security matters, and civil rights. He later served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in Los Angeles, most recently in the National Security Section, where he investigated and prosecuted cases involving computer network intrusions, thefts of trade secrets, and export control violations.
