Shields Re-elected Wiley Rein Managing Partner

Peter Shields will serve another three-year term as managing partner of Wiley Rein, the communications law powerhouse.

It will be his third term atop the firm, which was co-founded by former FCC Chairman and current partner Dick Wiley.

Shields is also a member of the executive committee of the firm's lobbying subsidiary, Signal Group.

Wiley Rein is something of a bullpen for FCC commissioners and a home to future and former top FCC staffers.
