June 15, 2009

Wiggin and Dana is pleased to announce the formal launch of its India Practice, which will serve the legal needs of individuals and entities engaged in cross-border transactions involving India.  The addition of Niket Rele, as a partner in the firm's New York office, builds on the work that the firm has been doing with respect to India for many years.
"India has become one of the most important trading partners for the U.S. and our emphasis on the U.S.-India relationship puts the firm in line with a national priority," said Wiggin and Dana's Business Department Chair, Paul Hughes.
Wiggin and Dana lawyers already have years of experience in representing global outsourcing, technology and pharmaceutical companies based in India.  "The firm's depth of experience with India, existing Indian clients and obvious commitment to the Indian market were key to my decision to join Wiggin and Dana," Mr. Rele stated.  "In formalizing the India Practice, we have brought together, in a focused way, the collective experience of some of our firm's strongest and most well-established practice groups to better serve the full range of legal needs of our clients doing business in India," comments Mark Heaphy, Partner and Chair of the firm's Technology and Outsourcing Practice.
