Chambers USA Ranks Wiley Rein’s Privacy Practice Among Nation’s Best; Kirk J. Nahra Receives Top Tier Honors for Four Straight Years

May 29, 2013

Chambers USA: America's Leading Lawyers for Business once again ranks Wiley Rein’s Privacy Practice as one of the best in the nation. Practice chair Kirk J. Nahra is named a “Leading Lawyer” in his field, again securing a top tier ranking. The practice is also one of only seven firms in the nation to receive “spotlight” recognition for its work on data privacy matters in the healthcare sector.

A source tells Chambers, “I would give them extremely high marks in all categories, including prompt response time.” Best known for its specialist knowledge of healthcare privacy and data security issues, the group offers “expert advice in a range of areas including the formation of security policies and the handling of data breach events,” Chambers says. Industry leaders in the accounting, technology and healthcare fields look to the firm “to guide them through business-critical issues.”

Mr. Nahra, ranked in the top tier for a fourth consecutive year, is in “the top echelon” of data privacy lawyers, sources say. They consider him to be “highly knowledgeable and sensitive to both costs and delivering results on time.”

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.
