New York Lawyer, October 3, 2003
Connecticut's Wiggin & Dana LLP announced that it has merged with Manhattan boutique Howe & Addington LLP.
 
Howe & Addington focuses on real estate, tax, estate planning and litigation.
 
The combined firm of 155 attorneys will continue to be known as Wiggin & Dana and all of Howe & Addington’s partners, associates and staff were included in the merger. The NY practice will continue to practice from offices at 450 Lexington Avenue.
 
"Wiggin & Dana is delighted about this great opportunity. The Howe & Addington lawyers are excellent and their approach to the practice of law mirrors our own," said Edward Wood Dunham, Chair of Wiggin & Dana's Executive Committee, in a press release on the firm's Web site. "The New York office will allow us to serve our clients better, and enable us to expand several important practice areas. In addition, Howe & Addington’s extensive relationships with European and Latin American clients will enhance and complement our own thriving international practice."
 
The merger creates Wiggin & Dana’s second office outside Connecticut; the other is in Philadelphia.
