He has served as bond counsel on general obligation bonds and notes, revenue bonds, refunding bonds, tax credit bonds, pension obligation bonds, state clean water fund financings, and conduit borrowings. He has also provided state and local tax planning and representation to diverse businesses and individuals, and has assisted a range of clients, from Fortune 500 corporations to start-ups.
"Glenn is one of the leading attorneys in the public finance sector in Connecticut and we are glad to have him on our team," said partner Scott Beach, chair of Day Pitney's Corporate and Business Law department.

The firm serves as Lead Bond Counsel and Lead Disclosure Counsel to the State of Connecticut on all general obligation bond issues.
In addition to serving as bond and disclosure counsel, the practice represents many underwriters, trustees, and borrowers in connection with tax-exempt and taxable state, authority and local government financings. The practice also includes advice in connection with distressed financings and municipal bond tax controversies.
