July 2011

The 2011 edition of Chambers USA: America's Leading Lawyers for Business again ranks Wiley Rein's Privacy Practice as one of the best in the nation in the areas of Privacy & Data Security and Healthcare Privacy. Practice chair Kirk J. Nahra is rated among the top tier of "Leading Lawyers" in these sectors.

Commending the group, sources told Chambers that "the firm has great stature and offers sound, practical advice." The directory notes that the team "is widely praised for its expertise in privacy matters relating to the healthcare industry. It focuses principally on regulatory and advisory work, counseling clients on a broad range of issues, including HIPAA and HITECH legislation compliance. In addition, the team is notably active in the financial services and telecommunications sectors."

Mr. Nahra received plaudits for being "a fantastic lawyer who keeps abreast of new developments in the field." Mr. Nahra, who specializes in healthcare privacy, information security, compliance programs and insurance fraud issues, "avoids legal jargon and goes the extra mile for his clients."

The Chambers ratings are based on extensive interviews with law firms' clients, colleagues and competitors. Inclusion in the directory is determined through a rigorous vetting process.
