The Legal 500 US Places Wiley Rein's International Trade Practice Among the Nation's Best
In its 2013 edition, The Legal 500 US rates Wiley Rein’s International Trade Practice among the nation’s top groups. Also recommended are practice chair Alan H. Price, partners Timothy C. Brightbill, Robert E. DeFrancesco, III, Adam H. Gordon and John R. Shane and of counsel Serena D. Moe.
The directory describes the group as “first-rate,” noting that the practice provides “outstanding value for money.” Clients praise the team as “proactive, realistic and responsive” while offering “judicious, sober advice.” The Legal 500 US reports the practice’s experience encompasses a wide array of areas in the field, and touts the firm’s work on behalf of clients on the trade remedies side. Receiving special attention is Wiley Rein’s representation of a coalition of U.S. wind tower producers in antidumping investigations into Chinese and Vietnamese imports of utility scale wind towers.
Mr. Price is hailed as “knowledgeable, efficient and client focused” by sources who say he is viewed as “a ‘go-to’ lawyer” by clients. The directory adds Mr. Brightbill, Mr. DeFrancesco and Mr. Gordon are “at the very top of their game,” and that Mr. Shane is recommended. The publication points to Ms. Moe as a notable addition to the group.
The Legal 500 US directory aims to provide independent, unbiased commentary on the leading law firms and lawyers in the most important legal marketplaces in the world. The research for the editorial sections is based on the combined opinions of the many lawyers interviewed, commentary from corporate clients and analysis of deals or contentious issues.
