Memo from Jack Dunham, Chair of Wiggin & Dana's Executive Committee, to Clients and Friends of Wiggin & Dana and Howe & Addington.

October 1, 2003
I am delighted to let you know that, effective today, Wiggin & Dana has merged with Howe & Addington LLP, a midtown Manhattan firm with sophisticated estate planning, tax, real estate and litigation practices. The combined firm of 155 lawyers will be called Wiggin & Dana. All of Howe & Addington's attorneys and staff will join us and will continue to practice from their offices at 450 Lexington Avenue.
This is an exciting step, which holds much promise for the firm and our clients. Howe & Addington's lawyers are excellent practitioners and high quality people. They will add significant breadth and depth to several of our important practice areas, and their extensive relationships with European and Latin American clients mesh well with Wiggin & Dana's thriving international practice. We are confident that this merger will substantially enhance our ability to serve existing and future clients, without compromising the professional values and collegial spirit that have always been the hallmark of Wiggin & Dana.
Wiggin & Dana welcomes partners
and the Staff of Howe & Addington.
