Day Pitney LLP announced today that Richard W. Moore has joined the firm as of counsel in its Individual Clients department. Moore works on matters pertaining to gift and estate planning, and will reside in Day Pitney's New York office.
"Dick will be a valuable addition to our estate planning team in New York," said Gregory A. Hayes, chair of Day Pitney's Individual Clients department. "He brings more than 30 years of experience in the trusts and estates field and complements the sophisticated resources we already have."
Moore focuses much of his practice on the preparation of wills and trusts. He assists clients with their family and gifting objectives, while seeking ways to reduce applicable gift, estate, income and generation-skipping taxes in order to preserve family wealth. In addition, he provides legal and tax advice and oversight during probate and the administration of estates and trusts. Moore has also served in the past as trustee and executor for clients and their families.
"Day Pitney's Individual Clients department has one of the most sophisticated trusts and estates practices in the country," said Moore. "The ability to offer a greater depth of services to my clients was a big attraction to me, and I am excited to be here."
Moore, who previously worked at his own boutique firm, is a member of the Trusts and Estates sections of the American Bar Association and the New York State Bar Association. He received a J.D. from the University of Pennsylvania Law School and an A.B., cum laude, from Harvard College.
