New York, NY September 29, 2015 - Day Pitney is pleased to announce that it has been selected for the GIR 100, an independent guide to the world's leading law firms for international investigations, compiled by the U.K.-based publication Global Investigations Review.
"It is an honor to be acknowledged by a respected source like GIR. This recognition is a testament to the hard work and success of our White Collar Defense and Internal Investigations team," said Day Pitney Managing Partner Stanley A. Twardy, Jr., who is also a member of the firm's White Collar practice.
The guide profiles 100 firms from around the world that the GIR editorial team has reviewed and assessed as experienced and able to advise companies and individuals accused or suspected of significant possible wrongdoing. Day Pitney was selected based on the White Collar practice's reputation for providing advice on both internal investigations and government-led investigations.
"Day Pitney's international investigations practice has gained attention in recent years for its defense of corporate executives caught up in major FCPA matters," the publication says in its review. "The firm's international investigations team of 11 partners and 10 additional lawyers defends corporate clients and individuals in complex grand jury investigations, many of which involve both regulatory probes and civil lawsuits. The firm focuses on alleged violations of securities, healthcare, tax, antitrust and environmental law, as well as political corruption, the FCPA and the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act. Day Pitney also advises companies on complying with economic and trade sanctions, including how to avoid liability for the acts of third parties."
