October 27, 2005

Washington, DC—Wiley Rein & Fielding founding partner Bert W. Rein has been recognized by his peers as the "Leading Food and Drug Lawyer" in the Washington, DC area.  The honor was the culmination of an extensive vetting process that began with Legal Times' selection of 11 "Leading Lawyers" in this practice area.  Legal Times then solicited votes from members of the legal community to single out one attorney to receive this top honor.  The results of the balloting were announced at an October 26, 2005 awards ceremony hosted by the paper.

Mr. Rein occupies a distinct place in the food and drug bar, where he is known for his extensive knowledge of administrative law and superior litigation skills. The span of his practice is diverse, encompassing matters ranging from First Amendment rights of industries regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to product liability issues and reform.  In addition to this most recent accolade, Mr. Rein has been recognized by Corporate Counsel as one of the "Best Lawyers in America" for excellence in business and commercial litigation, communications and antitrust law.
