Wiley Rein Wins Law360’s ‘Practice Groups of the Year’ Honors for Government Contracts, Insurance, International Trade, and Telecommunications

Insurance Practice Also Named to Short List of ‘Insurance All-Stars’

December 21, 2015

Wiley Rein’s prominent Government Contracts, Insurance, International Trade, and Telecom, Media & Technology (TMT) practices have been named among the best in the nation by Law360. The publication said it awarded the 2015 “Practice Groups of the Year” recognition to firms that “came through for clients by sealing the biggest deals and securing wins in high-stakes litigation.”

The Insurance Practice, chaired by Daniel J. Standish, is also among just three firms that were named to Law360’s 2015 list of “Insurance All-Stars.” The Group has been recognized as an Insurance “Practice Group of the Year” for four of the past five years—more than any other firm. Law360 also noted that the Team “has notched many high-profile victories on behalf of insurance company clients in recent years.”

In addition, this is the sixth year that the International Trade Practice, chaired by Alan H. Price, has won the Law360 honor, and the Group is the only law firm in the country that has made the list in that category for six consecutive years. It’s also the second consecutive year on the list for the firm’s Government Contracts Practice. This is the first year the “Practice Groups of the Year” awards have included a Telecommunications category, and Wiley Rein was one of only three firms selected for that practice area.

Law360 received 730 submissions for the series—now in its sixth year—and selected 184 winners across 30 practice areas for honors. Eighty law firms received one or more “Practice Groups of the Year” awards this year. Feature profiles on each practice will appear in Law360 next year.
