Law firms Wiggin and Redd join forces to create IP powerhouse


LONDON – Media, technology and brands law firm Wiggin and the boutique intellectual property law firm Redd have today announced that Redd are to join Wiggin on November 6th 2017. The combined team will comprise 20 specialist IP lawyers working across Wiggin’s offices.

Wiggin CEO, John Banister, said: “Wiggin devised an assertive growth strategy a few years ago that was focussed on our key markets – delivering innovative IP solutions is a critical component of this. Redd’s specialist approach, excellent lawyers and entrepreneurialism represents a real synergy with Wiggin and will enable us to provide a full IP offering to our clients. Redd is an immensely capable boutique and has an enviable reputation in IP law. We are delighted to be working together.”

 The Wiggin IP team, led by Simon Baggs, has represented clients in some of the landmark cases in recent years concerned with the protection of IP rights, in particular in the online context. The team was awarded Copyright Firm of the Year (Managing IP) for its work on the Newzbin case and Trade Mark Litigation Firm of the year (Managing IP) for its work on the Cartier case. Wiggin also won the Financial Times Award for Innovation in IP in 2015, in recognition of its creation of INCOPRO, a technology business that protects the IP of many leading global brand and IP businesses.

Redd’s lawyers are recognised as leaders in their field. With their renowned expertise in trade mark and designs litigation, patent litigation, commercial IP transactions and portfolio management services, they will add considerable strength and depth to Wiggin’s IP service.

Sara Ashby, one of the founding partners of Redd, said: “Joining Wiggin will allow us to achieve scale while retaining our absolute focus on IP. We have a lot in common – both firms are specialists in what they do and are lucky enough to act for some fantastic clients, have been involved in leading cases and advisory work, and have great teams of lawyers with a similar ethos and culture. We are all committed to delivering the best service to our clients and we are really excited about the opportunities that Redd joining Wiggin will bring.”
