Day Pitney Expands Into Florida Through Merger with Chapin, Ballerano & Cheslack

Publisher: Day Pitney Estate Planning Update
December 16, 2015

Day Pitney will expand its East Coast presence through a merger with Florida-based law firm Chapin, Ballerano & Cheslack. James A. Ballerano Jr., Brian Cheslack, Robert Chapin, Stanley Greene, Jay L. Kauffman, Jay D. Mussman and Brian E. Thompson will join the firm's Trusts and Estates and Corporate practices once the merger is completed on January 1, 2016.

The seven attorneys joining Day Pitney have experience in trust and estate planning, trust and estate administration, guardianships, probate litigation and elder law, as well as in corporate, real estate and business transactions. The lawyers will work out of their existing Florida offices in Delray Beach and Boca Raton.

Following the merger, Day Pitney’s Trusts and Estates practice will have nearly 60 attorneys, making it one of the largest and most sophisticated trusts and estates practices in the country. For more than a decade, Day Pitney and Chapin, Ballerano & Cheslack have had an informal relationship, each providing legal services to clients with interests in the other firm's practice regions. We look forward to welcoming our new colleagues when we open our doors in Florida in January.
