She brings over 20 years of experience advising high net worth individuals and families on everything from estate and business succession matters to U.S. tax and reporting issues," said Greg Hayes, chair of Day Pitney's Trusts and Estates Practice. "In particular, her international experience compliments nicely with our established international Trusts and Estates team."
