New Haven law firm Wiggin and Dana has named attorney Tim Diemand as its new managing partner.

Diemand, an eight-year veteran of the firm’s executive committee, will take over the position effective Oct. 1, according to company officials, succeeding Paul Hughes, who has served as managing partner since 2015.

Diemand, who currently serves as president of the Connecticut Bar Foundation, has represented clients in complex cases such as insurance class actions, copyright claims against major record labels and recording artists, professional malpractice defense and catastrophic injury claims. He is a former co-chair of the CBA’s professionalism committee and a former co-chair of the federal practice section.

“I am honored to take on this new role,” Diemand said in a statement. “I look forward to working with my colleagues to capitalize on our opportunities and am excited about the continued growth and direction of Wiggin and Dana.”

Additionally, attorneys Carolyn Reers and Evan Kipperman will join Wiggin and Dana’s executive committee as newly-elected members.

Reers is a partner in the private client services department in the Greenwich and New York
offices, and Kipperman is a partner in the corporate department and co-chair of its emerging companies and venture capital practice group.

Hughes and Dan Daniels, whose terms are ending, will transition off the executive committee while Rebecca Matthews and James Bicks will continue their terms.

Wiggin and Dana has offices in New Haven, Hartford, Stamford, Greenwich, Westport and Madison, in addition to locations in New York City, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and Palm Beach, Florida. It employs over 150 attorneys.
