WRF Privacy Practice Recognized as One of the Nation’s Best; Kirk J. Nahra Named as Leading Privacy Expert

March 16, 2006

Washington, DC – Wiley Rein & Fielding’s Privacy Practice has been recognized as one of the nation’s top privacy consultancies in an informal survey of corporate privacy officers (CPOs) that also singled out practice chair Kirk J. Nahra as a “nationally recognized expert” in the field.  The survey results appeared in the March 7, 2006 issue of Computerworld.

When asked to name and comment on law firms that “provide the best privacy advice,” respondents cited expertise, professionalism, government and industry ties and the presence of nationally recognized privacy experts as among the most important characteristics of a “best-of-breed firm.” 

Mr. Nahra is among a handful of experts that survey respondents repeatedly mentioned by name as a leading “hired privacy gun.”  A certified information privacy professional, he has an extensive practice, assisting companies in analyzing and implementing the requirements of privacy and security laws, with particular expertise in the health care and property/casualty insurance industries.  Mr. Nahra also serves on the Board of Directors of the International Association of Privacy Professionals.
