Wiggin is a law firm which specialises in media, technology and IP. Wiggin helps clients realise the value of their ideas in a digital age.
The firm’s specialists predict the legal challenges that arise from the wealth of new ideas and technologies that the digital world is constantly creating.
From Hollywood studios to early stage tech businesses, games developers to leading brands, Wiggin understand their clients’ needs and give informed advice. It doesn’t just tell clients the risks – it gives its opinion in a jargon-free, real-world context, so clients have the freedom to do what they do best, creatively and commercially.
PRINCIPAL AREAS OF WORK
The firm advises and supports clients on the financing, exploitation and protection of their creative and commercial assets. Alongside its specialist commercial expertise, Wiggin also delivers a full legal service across corporate, tax, finance, litigation, employment and property.
The Brussels office lobbies EU decision makers on behalf of clients — on everything from EU copyright, audio visual regulation, data protection and competition policy, to trade and e-commerce, in addition to providing expert legal support. Wiggin has also built an informal network of trusted overseas law firms — with a similar media, technology and IP focus to its own — to ensure clients get the advice they need in all key jurisdictions.
The firm has offices in London, Brussels and Cheltenham.
