Wiggin CEO named as one of The Lawyer’s Hot 100

5 February 2013 

Wiggin CEO, John Banister has been named as one of The Lawyer Magazine’s Hot 100. The magazine’s write-up of Wiggin recognised John, and the firm’s commitment to creating an organisation that is more than just a media law firm, and instead is moving towards being a media business:

“In the past 12 months Banister and his team have opened an office in Brussels, acted as executive producers for TV and film clients, drafted plans to launch a London-based technology incubator, launched a content protection partnership and advised around half of the UK producers who were awarded YouTube channels.”

John Banister comments: “The Lawyer is a prestigious title and we are very pleased to be recognised as one of the best in the sector. The rest of the list demonstrates how tough the competition is but what is also clear is that Wiggin is offering something new, different and often ground-breaking for our clients.

“Because we are purely focused on the media sector, we are able to truly immerse ourselves in our clients’ world and come up with original and unique ways to deliver value to them.

“Many thanks to The Lawyer magazine for recognising the work we do – the best is yet to come!”
