Wiggin and Dana Expands to Washington, DC

January 19, 2016

Wiggin and Dana is pleased to announce the opening of its office at 1350 I Street NW, Washington, DC.

"Expansion to Washington, DC is a natural outgrowth of our flourishing International Trade Compliance practice and White Collar Defense and Government Investigations practice," said James I. Glasser, Chair of the firm's Litigation Department. "Our International Trade Compliance group counsels Fortune 50 defense contractors, financial institutions, universities, and exporters large and small. A member of our group serves as Special Compliance Officer for a major aerospace company on behalf of the State Department, and is one of only a handful of lawyers in the country who serve in this capacity. The White Collar team regularly represents companies and individuals in investigations conducted by the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Department of Justice, the State Department, the Office of Foreign Assets Control, and other regulators," said Mr. Glasser. Mr. Glasser added that "with these growing practices, it made sense for us to open an office closer to our DC-area clients and the regulators with whom we work."

Wiggin and Dana is a full-service law firm representing clients including some of the most prestigious institutions in the country, foreign sovereigns, high tech start-ups, and high net worth individuals in the United States and abroad. "Opening our Washington, DC office will allow the firm's deep bench of partners and associates dedicated to the International Trade Compliance and White Collar practices to continue to provide responsive and experienced counsel to clients in the defense, financial, education, and manufacturing sectors. We plan to expand those practices as well as others, facilitating better access and service for our clients that have headquarters or embassies in DC, or business before DC-area courts and regulators," said Paul Hughes, the firm's Chairman.

The Washington, DC office is the firm's seventh. Wiggin and Dana's lawyers provide a full range of legal services from six other offices in Connecticut, New York, and Philadelphia.
