Why Day Pitney?

If you want to learn quickly, take on complex challenges and have a direct impact on the successes of businesses and the lives of people, Day Pitney is the place for you.  Every day, Day Pitney associates work on sophisticated legal matters, collaborating with senior lawyers who are recognized leaders in their practice areas. Our clients, ranging from well-known corporations to dynamic entrepreneurs, entrust their most significant matters to Day Pitney professionals. The result: a fast-paced and exciting work environment in which every associate can develop a complete and dynamic skill set.

Part of the Action

We staff client matters by creating customized teams that match our clients’ legal requirements. Associates are key contributors, expected to offer their best ideas and perspectives from their first day. As their confidence level and visibility to clients increase, associates assume more responsibility for significant decisions and interact directly with clients as “go-to” contacts for key aspects of matters. This approach – team support blended with individual accountability – accelerates associates' professional development and enhances their satisfaction with daily work and career advancement.

Associates are always part of the action. On a given day you will find our early-career junior trial associates arguing motions, taking depositions, and "second chairing" trials. Similarly, our junior business associates will be working directly with clients, negotiating and drafting documents and supplementing their core knowledge with broad-based experience in the ever-evolving business law arena.

An Atmosphere with Energy

Our clients deserve the best ideas and most engaged, focused lawyers. We have built a work environment that is energized, fluid, and informal. Attorneys frequently gather to discuss matters with colleagues, brainstorming ideas and refining strategies. Within practice groups, there is a strong sense of camaraderie. We embrace a work environment where professionals will take the time to explain the nuances of law to help associates build specialized knowledge. In short, Day Pitney provides the nurturing working environment you might associate with small firms, while offering the resources, client base and sophisticated work provided by the very largest firms. Within this “sweet spot” of law firms, the associates of Day Pitney readily and rapidly thrive.

Diversity

Day Pitney seeks highly talented and innovative people who can translate their knowledge into practical solutions for our clients. Accordingly, we make a concerted effort to cultivate a multi-dimensional team from various backgrounds and cultures.

We create alliances with groups that share our focus on building greater diversity at our firm and across the legal services industry. For example, we were a founding member of the Lawyers Collaborative for Diversity, Inc. (formerly known as the Connecticut Lawyers Group), as well as the New Jersey Law Firm Group and participate in the Boston Law Firm Group. Day Pitney is a signatory to the New York City Bar Statement of Diversity Principles. We also take part in a variety of job fairs and recruiting opportunities where diversity plays a central role such as the annual regional BLSA Job Fair, the National Hispanic Bar Association Job Fair, the New Jersey Law Firm Group Job Fair, the Boston Lawyers Group Job Fair, and the Philadelphia Area Minority Job Fair.

More importantly, the firm – through the work of our long-standing Diversity Committee and the daily striving of all of our employees – is committed to maintaining a work environment that is welcoming and energizing for all of its attorneys.
