March 17, 2016

Washington, DC — For the sixth consecutive year, Chambers Global: The World’s Leading Lawyers for Business has included Wiley Rein’s International Trade and Privacy practices in its worldwide rankings.                                                         

In addition, several of the firm’s attorneys were again singled out by Chambers Global 2016 as leaders in their fields. Privacy Practice chair Kirk J. Nahra, who was named a Leading Lawyer in Privacy & Data Security, garnered praise as “one of the nation’s leading experts on privacy and health care law.” Chambers cited his “pragmatic advice for complex problems” in the health care industry, advising on data breaches, investigations, and compliance program development.

International Trade Practice chair Alan H. Price who was selected as a Leading Lawyer in the area of Trade Remedies & Trade Policy, was described as “excellent.” Clients say that he “explain[s] issues in a way that’s perfect for CEOs – complete, succinct, highly technical yet gets to the root of the problem.”

Partner Timothy C. Brightbill was also named a Leading Lawyer in the same field, earning recognition for his broad practice that includes deep experience in trade remedies, as well as export controls and trade policy. Clients say of him: “He is extremely concise and easy to work with – his representation has been extraordinary.”
