New York - Wiggin and Dana LLP is pleased to announce that it has expanded its intellectual property litigation capabilities in the firm's New York City Office with the addition of counsel Ed Bailey, formerly at Hogan Lovells.

Mr. Bailey joins the firm's Litigation Department with over 35 years of experience in all aspects of intellectual property litigation and counseling with an emphasis on patent infringement litigation. He works with clients in a broad range of technologies and has represented companies at all stages of their existence from start ups to mature global companies.

"Ed is an unusually talented practitioner whose three decades of experience as a leading patent litigator enhances our existing intellectual property litigation group," comments Jack Dunham, Partner and Chair of the firm's Litigation Department. "We are thrilled to have him as our colleague."

Ed is a seasoned trial lawyer with a broad range of patent litigation experience involving technologies from pharmaceuticals to microprocessor architectures. Ed has also litigated trademark and copyright matters. He has significant experience in patent interference practice and has served as lead counsel in high profile interferences.

Before joining Wiggin and Dana, Ed spent his entire career as a trial lawyer in firms in New York City ranging from a leading intellectual property specialty firm (where he spent the first thirty years of his career and also served as the firm's managing partner) to larger general practice firms.

Before attending law school, Ed undertook graduate studies in biochemistry. He served as an officer in the U.S. Marine Corps including a combat tour of duty as an artillery forward observer with a Marine rifle company. Following law school, he clerked for The Honorable Frank H. McFadden, Chief Judge of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Alabama. Mr. Bailey graduated from the University of Virginia School of Law and received his B.S. in Chemistry from Auburn University.
