Unlike most major law firms in the city, Wiley Rein LLP and its attorneys are based in a single office, located among the bustling offices on K Street in Washington, DC. Having one office location provides a unique and personal setting for Wiley Rein professionals, one where the attorneys genuinely get to know each other, and in the summer, get to know each summer associate personally.

To further highlight the exceptional aspects of Wiley Rein, Managing Partner Peter Shields and his husband, Ace Werner, generously opened their home to the summer associate class—and members of the firm’s Executive and Management Committees and their guests—for a beautiful dinner on Tuesday, July 11. Attorneys, summer associates, and guests mingled under tents in Peter’s back yard as they enjoyed a night of delicious food and amazing conversation.

It’s hard to believe that summer is passing so quickly, but it was great to have another opportunity for our summer associates to get to know some of the principle members of the firm.

A very special thank you to Peter and Ace for hosting the event at their elegant home, it was truly an extraordinary night!
