Chambers reports Wiley Rein's practice "provides top-notch advice across a wide range of telecom and broadcasting matters" and that "with around 70 communications lawyers, this is one of the best practices in the USA."  Chambers adds that the practice stands out "on transactions in both the broadcast and wireless spaces and excels in wireless work" while coming "highly recommended for controversy work."

"Industry legend" Mr. Wiley is described as "the go-to person in this sphere."  Michael Senkowski receives praise "for his skill in representing satellite companies" and is viewed "very highly" by peers. Andrew McBride is mentioned for his frequent handling of "the defense side of class action suits" and Henry Rivera is recognized for his specialization in "transactional matters, including bankruptcies of telecom companies."
