Susan W. Ylitalo and Elizabeth A. Latif have been named to the Connecticut Law Tribune's "New Leaders in the Law Yearbook" for 2013. Sixty-two attorneys were chosen from more than 300 entries submitted by the nominee's peers and colleagues. Nominees were evaluated based on their professional accomplishments, pro bono efforts and community involvement, and had to be under the age of 40.
Ms. Ylitalo, counsel in Day Pitney's Individual Clients department, was highlighted for her "ability to unpack complex techniques and strategies and put practical and creative solutions in place in response to the individual needs of each client." She has served on the executive committee of the Young Lawyers Section of the Connecticut Bar Association and practices in the areas of estate planning, estate and trust administration, and charitable giving. Ms. Ylitalo also advises tax-exempt organizations on planned gift solicitation and the administration of endowments.
Ms. Latif is counsel in the Commercial Litigation department. Her practice focuses on representing companies and individuals in connection with the defense of regulatory, white-collar criminal and complex civil-litigation matters. Prior to joining the firm, Ms. Latif was an Assistant U.S. Attorney in both the Eastern District of New York and the District of Connecticut, and her nomination noted that she "utilizes her past experience to zealously represent individuals and companies investigated by the U.S. Department of Justice, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, and other agencies." She also provides representation for indigent defendants as an appointee to the Criminal Justice Act Panels of the U.S. District Court in Connecticut and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
