Law360 Profiles Brandon Moss, Enbar Toledano, and Gary Ward as ‘Rising Stars’
Washington, DC – Wiley, a preeminent DC law firm, is pleased to announce that Brandon J. Moss, Enbar Toledano, and Gary S. Ward were profiled by Law360 as 2022 “Rising Stars” in their respective practice areas.
The highly competitive list recognizes attorneys under 40 “whose legal accomplishments belie their age,” according to the publication. Moss was recognized in the White Collar category, Toledano was named to the list for her work in International Trade appeals, and Ward was selected for Government Contracts.
Moss, a partner in Wiley’s White Collar Defense & Government Investigations Practice, defends companies and their executives in complex civil and criminal cases involving alleged health care fraud, the False Claims Act (FCA), whistleblower allegations, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), antitrust, regulatory violations, and contract and procurement fraud. In an interview with Law360, she noted that in the white collar defense world, every case is a big case because the consequences can be life-changing for a company or individual.
“When it comes down to it, being a white collar attorney is all about puzzle building and storytelling,” Moss said. “I love digging deep and investigating, figuring out what happened when. It's truly exciting when things start to come together. And then you get to apply the law and advocate successfully for the client.”
Toledano, of counsel in the firm’s International Trade, Litigation, and Issues and Appeals practices, is a brief-writer and legal strategist who specializes in critical motions practice and appeals. She represents numerous U.S. industries before the Court of International Trade (CIT), the Federal Circuit, and North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) panels in appeals from trade remedies proceedings.
Her victories include successfully arguing on behalf of client Nucor Corp. in one of the first virtual proceedings conducted by the CIT during the pandemic. Toledano predicted that the industry’s strides in virtual work will continue paving the way for greater representation, particularly in arguments and appeals. “Remote proceedings have eliminated so many barriers to entry, and I hope wherever the industry lands on hybrid work and virtual proceedings continues the trend,” she told Law360.
Ward, partner in Wiley’s Government Contracts Practice, represents clients offering a broad range of products and services – from cloud computing and unmanned aerial systems to base operations support and other professional services. His work covers a variety of government customers including most defense, intelligence, and civilian agencies. He has litigated more than 100 bid protests at the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) and many others at the U.S. Court of Federal Claims and on appeal to the Federal Circuit. Several of these protests have involved multibillion-dollar contract awards.
“What I’m most proud of in my work life is the group of attorneys I’m with right now, our continuous track record over a sustained period of time, and the ability to keep tackling some of the most challenging issues,” Ward told Law360.
Law360 editors reviewed more than 1,350 submissions to compile this year’s list of Rising Stars, which includes 176 attorneys from 96 firms spanning 36 practice areas. Winners were selected based on their career accomplishments in their respective disciplines.
