Wiley Rein's Privacy Practice Ranks Among Nation's Best in Chambers USA; Kirk J. Nahra Receives Top Tier Honors

June 8, 2012

Chambers USA: America's Leading Lawyers for Business once 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 named a "Leading Lawyer" in his field, securing a top-tier ranking.  The practice is one of only six firms in the nation to receive the rating "Recommended for Client Service." A source tells Chambers that Wiley Rein "deserves acknowledgement" for being a "truly committed partner of our legal department."

Chambers reports Wiley Rein's "global privacy and security network" is attractive to clients looking for experience in emerging technologies, healthcare and international data protection and security incident management and response.  The directory credits the group for its recent counsel on HIPAA compliance and various privacy and data security issues.

Kirk Nahra receives praise for "an almost encyclopedic knowledge of the law and its application" and his deep experience in healthcare privacy, compliance and data security law.

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