Day Pitney LLP announced today that partner Thomas D. Goldberg has been named the firm's new managing partner, effective April 2nd.
"Tom is a natural leader who exemplifies the firm's core values," said Day Pitney's current managing partner, Stanley A. Twardy, Jr. "Having worked with Tom on the Executive Committee for the past six years, I know that we are fortunate to have him in this role." Twardy will remain involved in the firm's strategic planning and initiatives in addition to continuing his practice.
The firm has also elected partner Gregory A. Hayes to serve on its Executive Committee along with Goldberg and current Executive Committee member Mary B. Rogers. Partner B. Dane Dudley will succeed Hayes as chair of the firm's Individual Clients Department.
In addition to his leadership role, Goldberg will continue to practice law, representing clients in complex commercial litigation, including disputes involving shareholders and securities, contracts and bankruptcy, as well as defending accountants' liability and legal malpractice claims. Goldberg is a former chair of the board of Connecticut Legal Services, the largest provider of pro bono legal services to low-income people in the state, and continues to serve on the organization's Advisory Council. He also has been actively involved in the Federal Bar Council and has served on its Board of Trustees. Goldberg earned his J.D. from Columbia Law School, where he was a member of the Columbia Law Review, and his A.B. from Brown University.
"It is an honor and a privilege to have the opportunity to serve as Day Pitney's next managing partner," said Goldberg. "I look forward to building on the firm's successes and continuing to drive our deep commitment to client service on every level within the firm."
