(PARSIPPANY, April 7, 2014) - Day Pitney has been named the New Jersey Law Journal's Real Estate Litigation Department of the Year for 2014. The publication notes that Day Pitney's Real Estate Litigation practice team "represents some of the best known and most active companies and developers in the region's real estate market."
The NJLJ wrote, "On the zoning and land use side of the practice, the firm has remained highly active over the past year with substantial work, including numerous transactions for Merck, Honeywell, the New York Jets, and CVS (a leading U.S. pharmacy chain)."
Day Pitney partners Craig Gianetti, Anthony Marchetta, Elliot Ostrove and Christopher Stracco were also singled out by the publication for their work in the past year.
The NJLJ competition was open to any litigation firm with a New Jersey presence and considered wins secured by the NJ practice groups between Jan. 1, 2013, and Dec. 31, 2013. In addition to considering the results and the difficulty of the matter as well as the value to the client and the creativity of counsel, the publication also took into account the breadth and depth of each firm's practice area.
Of the firm's real estate litigation practice, the NJLJ wrote, "The real estate team provides a wide range of services to clients, consistently adapting to clients' changing needs whether the change comes from growth or restructuring." The publication also noted that like the firm's litigation practice at large "the department offers clients innovative alternative fee arrangements, efficiency-driven litigation management, and cutting edge e-discovery strategies."
