About Us  |  Overview

Wiley Rein is a dominant presence in Washington, DC, with more than 240 attorneys and public policy advisors. Our firm has earned international prominence by representing clients in complex, high-stakes regulatory, litigation, and transactional matters. Many of the firm’s attorneys have held high-level positions in the White House, on Capitol Hill, and in federal agencies including the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the Federal Communications Commission, the U.S. Department of State, the U.S. Department of Commerce, the Federal Election Commission, and the U.S. Department of Justice. Many of our attorneys also have active high-level security clearances that allow them to quickly “read in” to matters when there is a need to access classified materials. The Legal Times has noted that the firm “represents as perfect a merging of public policy and corporate America as exists in Washington.”

Wiley Rein operates at the intersection of politics, law, government, business, and technological innovation, representing a wide range of clients—from Fortune 500 corporations to trade associations to individuals—in virtually all industries. We believe delivering consistent and successful results is achieved through building true partnerships with our clients. We do this by understanding the industries and economic climate in which they operate and the current and potential legal issues that impact their business. Most importantly, because Wiley Rein remains a Washington, DC-based firm that largely operates out of a single office, we are able to control costs and billing rates in a manner that is nearly impossible in large, multi-office or multinational law firms.

In addition, Wiley Rein generously gives back to the community, providing significant pro bono legal services and charitable contributions to more than 450 local and national organizations every year.
