Why Day Pitney?

With more than a century in practice, Day Pitney has a long track record of helping our clients accomplish their business goals. Our focus on service allows us to anticipate our clients' needs and create positive outcomes that truly add value and make a difference to our clients on a daily basis.

With close to 300 attorneys in nine offices, we are well positioned to bring a personal and practical approach to all that we do. We work in cross-disciplinary teams to provide results-based representation and forward-thinking solutions to complex litigation and transactional matters.

Our clients include large national and international corporations, financial institutions, government entities, and individual businesses. Our firm is well known and respected for our work in Litigation, Energy, Corporate and Business Law, Labor, and the Financial Markets, among other areas. Our Individual Clients Department is one of the largest and most sophisticated practices of its kind in the country.

We are much more than the sum of our core practices, however. Our commitment to diversity and our focus on a shared culture is directly reflected in our client service. Both accessible and transparent, we build strong bonds with our clients, which allow us to help them accomplish their personal, legal, and business goals.

Key Practice Areas


Whatever our clients' litigation needs, our attorneys have a tradition of handling a wide array of complex litigation matters for companies big and small at the pre-trial, trial, and appellate levels. Key allies in the courtroom, our attorneys also are skilled and experienced in arbitration, mediation, and other forms of alternative dispute resolution. Our lawyers will work with you to discuss the range of available strategies that can be pursued to accomplish the most efficient and effective results in your case. We handle almost any type of litigation, including intellectual property, antitrust, securities, franchise, product liability, and toxic tort, to name a few.


Our team of corporate and transactional attorneys represents publicly traded companies in a variety of major industries, including energy, banking, defense, communications, manufacturing and technology. The Wall Street sophistication that we offer our clients is matched by the personal touch we bring to areas as diverse as capital markets, corporate governance, mergers and acquisitions, securities law, compliance, state corporate law, and tax and benefits. We also have broad capabilities in real estate, land use, and environmental issues, representing a range of clients, including lenders, developers, owners, and prospective buyers.

Government Investigations

With regulatory and enforcement issues more important than ever, our corporate and individual clients rely on us for representation in a variety of federal and state investigations. Whether brought by the U.S. Department of Justice, the Securities and Exchange Commission, or any number of state and local enforcement agencies, we handle investigations involving financial and securities fraud, political corruption, and regulatory matters. Our team of former federal and state prosecutors and regulators has extensive experience conducting internal investigations for corporate boards, audit committees, and special management committees.

Labor, Employment and Benefits

Ranging from Fortune 500 companies to single-site operations, our clients have long counted on our outstanding trial record for their employment disputes. Our well-regarded and top-ranked team of labor, employment, and benefits attorneys has handled discrimination and labor disputes, administrative and regulatory actions brought by state and federal agencies, and ERISA contract disputes. Our forward-looking attorneys also strive to prevent problems before they arise by pursuing proactive personnel policies, conducting internal audits, and ensuring compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Intellectual Property

For many companies today, intellectual property is a key asset. At Day Pitney, our team of Intellectual Property attorneys strives to protect, preserve, and maximize the value of those assets. To do so, we provide a variety of services ranging from patent and trademark prosecution to representation in transactions and litigation. Our attorneys bring backgrounds in computer science, media and communications, antitrust, and science and engineering to the highly technical issues in the IP arena. That diversity has served our clients in numerous fields such as digital technology, telecommunications, computers, electronics, software, Internet and new media, consumer electronics, mechanical and electro-mechanical devices, aerospace, photocopying, photonics, industrial chemicals, chemical processes, textiles, pharmaceuticals, and biotechnology.

Individual Clients

Day Pitney's nationally recognized Individual Clients Department is among the largest and most sophisticated in the country. Members of our team represent individuals and their families, fiduciaries, and tax-exempt entities. We assist clients in estate and tax planning, business succession planning, the administration of decedent's estates, the administration of trusts, guardianships, conservatorships and other matters relating to incapacity, divorce law, and probate litigation. We are informed and compassionate advisors in a practice that is international and truly personal.


Energy and energy infrastructure are among the country's most important issues for the foreseeable future, and we have spent more than 50 years at the forefront of most of the complex challenges that have faced the industry. We represent U.S. and international developers, contractors, utilities, suppliers, and investors in environmental and land use issues; retail and wholesale market design; the development and financing of new power plants; mergers, consolidations, reorganizations, and divestitures; and alternative dispute resolutions. Members of our leadership team have held high-level in-house positions, including general counsel to the New England Power Pool (NEPOOL), general counsel of Central Maine Power Company, and the special nuclear counsel to a utility client whose plants were previously on the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's watch list.
