Stephen Cobb, attorney and associate fellow for innovation and technology for the Rainey Center, has been named one of 2019's "Top 40 Under 40" by Style Weekly in Richmond, VA. Cobb was recognized for his work in the Commerce Department and for being one of the youngest deputy attorneys general in history. He described his work in the Attorney General's office to Style Weekly, saying,
“We oversaw the day-to-day legal representation for everything that was not health, education and public safety,” he says. “That’s agriculture, administration, commerce and trade, transportation, veterans and defense affairs, natural resources and finance. It touched on a little bit of everything.”
The profile also highlighted his volunteer work, particularly his service with the US-Spain Council’s Young Leaders program, mentoring law students, and volunteering at the Virginia State Capitol each year for Law Day.
In addition to his fellowship with the Rainey Center, Cobb is an attorney at the law firm of Troutman Sanders LLP where his practice focuses on government investigations, litigation, and election law. As a result of his unique legal and political background, he has appeared regularly on various news programs, including FOX NEWS, FOX Business, and Newsmax, to provide analysis and insight on issues of law, policy, and politics.
Cobb has also served as an Adjunct Law Professor at the George Mason University School of Law, teaching Negotiation and Legal Drafting. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Maryland, College Park and a Juris Doctor from The College of William & Mary School of Law.
