Wiggin and Dana LLP

 

Wiggin and Dana is a full-service law firm with 146 lawyers that represents clients throughout the country and abroad from our offices in Connecticut, New York, Philadelphia, Washington, DC, and Palm Beach. Wiggin and Dana provides a broad range of legal services to meet the needs of our diverse client base. Our clients include publicly traded companies, hospitals and other health care organizations, universities, entrepreneurs and emerging growth companies, real estate developers, financial institutions, museums, charitable organizations and individuals.

We believe the qualities that differentiate us from other law firms are best conveyed through the clients we serve, the work we do, and the quality of our lawyers.

  • Our clients – We represent clients throughout the United States, Europe, South America and Asia on a wide range of sophisticated and complex matters. Our clients range from some of the largest and most prestigious institutions in the country to up-and-coming start-ups to high net worth individuals. As we have grown, our focus on excellence and client service has remained our core value, and we are proud that many of our clients have been so for decades.
  • Our work – We have included in this web site a sampling of recent transactions and litigation matters with which we have been involved, which we believe illustrate the breadth and depth of our capabilities. To learn more, browse through the representative transactions and litigation matters, identified within our practice group descriptions.
  • Our lawyers – Finally, from senior partners to junior associates, we have assembled and we retain an outstanding coterie of lawyers who have strong academic credentials, professional achievements and creative, common sense approaches to resolving issues. We encourage you to review the attorney profiles on this web site, including the sections that describe the diversity of the firm and the charitable and pro bono activities of our lawyers. By any standard, this is an impressive collection of legal talent.

While we would like to say our web site will tell you everything you need to know about Wiggin and Dana, that would not be entirely accurate. There is no place where you can click on and find out who we really are – a true partnership in every sense of the word, devoted to excellence and focused on our clients' needs. We believe that Wiggin and Dana exemplifies the best of the old and new – a proudly independent firm dedicated to crafting innovative solutions in traditional and emerging industries in ever-changing areas of the law.
