Day Pitney LLP today announced that Dennis M. Reznick, who formerly chaired the Environmental Litigation practice group at Edwards Angell Palmer & Dodge LLP, has joined the firm as a partner in its Real Estate, Environmental and Land Use department. Reznick, who has been active in environmental law and litigation for more than 30 years, will reside in Day Pitney's office in Parsippany.
"Dennis has been involved in many significant environmental cases throughout his career with a proven record of success," said Deirdre E. Moore, chair of Day Pitney's Real Estate, Environmental and Land Use department. "We are delighted to have him join us, and we know that our clients will benefit from his experience."
Reznick has handled a wide range of environmental litigation, administrative and compliance matters across the country. He also advises clients on the environmental issues and aspects of real estate and business transactions. As a former general counsel for a New York Stock Exchange-listed company, Reznick managed corporate finance and compliance issues, contract negotiation and drafting, risk management and product liability, and litigation management.
Throughout his career, Reznick has provided counsel on many significant environmental and commercial litigation matters. He currently advises a group of Fortune 50 companies in a matter involving one of the largest urban waterway contaminated sediment Superfund sites in the United States. He also obtained an eight-figure settlement from the prior owner/operator of a petroleum refinery operation relating to costs associated with a Brownfield Redevelopment.
"I was attracted to Day Pitney by the quality and reputation of its attorneys, as well as the depth and geographic reach of its real estate and environmental practice group," said Reznick. "We serve many of the same clients, and I look forward to collaborating with my new colleagues, some of whom I have worked with and against over the years. I am very excited to be here."
Reznick received a J.D. and a B.A., magna cum laude, from Boston College. Also joining Day Pitney from Edwards Angell is associate Kirstin K. Mannarino. Her practice centers around environmental law and commercial litigation. Mannarino received a J.D. from Boston University School of Law and a B.A. from Rutgers College.
