Day Pitney LLP has announced the strategic expansion of its private equity, finance and investment management practices with the addition of two partners from the Connecticut-based law firm Shipman & Goodwin LLP. Peter J. Bilfield and Steven M. Gold will be resident in Stamford, Connecticut, and New York, NY.
"We are excited to have these very skilled lawyers join our firm," said Day Pitney Managing Partner Stanley A. Twardy, Jr. "We have been strategically deepening our bench to strengthen our offerings in key markets and practice areas."
"Peter and Steve will enable us to provide even more depth and experience to assist our business and individual clients," said R. Scott Beach, Chair of Day Pitney's Corporate and Business Law Department. "We are looking forward to working with such talented lawyers. Their experience will strengthen our existing team and complement the practices of the partners we added earlier this year in the family office, international tax and venture finance areas."
Peter J. Bilfield joins Day Pitney as a partner and assumes the role of Co-Chair of the Investment Management and Private Funds group. He focuses his practice on investment management and corporate and securities law, where he represents investment advisers and private investment funds in all aspects of their businesses. Bilfield also works extensively with non-U.S. investment firms located throughout Europe, Asia and Australia on U.S. securities and regulatory matters. He provides ongoing regulatory, securities, commodities and general corporate advice to investment advisers and their affiliates. Bilfield also assists institutional investors with conducting reviews and negotiating the terms of their investment agreements and represents seed investors in negotiating and structuring seed investments with emerging managers.
Steven M. Gold joins Day Pitney as a partner. He assists clients in the areas of corporate law, mergers and acquisitions, and commercial finance, including establishment of various entities and counseling on finance matters. He represents a diverse group of corporations, entrepreneurs, commercial banks, investment banks and investors, as well as high technology and emerging growth entities.
