Wiley Rein International Trade Practice Ranked among Nation's Best by Chambers USA; Three Partners Named "Leading Lawyers"

June 16, 2010

The 2010 edition of Chambers USA: America's Leading Lawyers for Business recognizes Wiley Rein's International Trade Practice as one of the best in the nation, naming practice co-chairs Alan H. Price and Charles Owen Verrill, Jr. and partner John B. Reynolds III as "Leading Lawyers" in their field.  Partner Timothy C. Brightbill was lauded as an "up and comer."

As Chambers notes, the trade group is " known for petitioners' side trade remedies work, and has seen more clients turning to its lawyers for antidumping and countervailing case advice in recent times.  It also handles trade negotiations, global energy interests and global environment and climate change policy."

The directory reports that Mr. Reynolds, who is also ranked in Chambers' Export Control area and in its top tier of CFIUS Experts, is "diplomatic and savvy when dealing with governments in tense situations and is creative in how he analyzes problems." Referred to as "a guiding light and an excellent source of information," Mr. Verrill counsels on trade law and policy.  The publication states that Mr. Price has "an expansive range of expertise that incorporates the full gamut of trade work," and reports that clients say Mr. Price "talks to us on our level and is extremely open and honest on what we should expect and what the chances of success are."  Mr. Brightbill, who was recently appointed to serve on an Industry Trade Advisory Committee, stands out as "an incredibly impressive 'nuts and bolts' lawyer."

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