Day Pitney LLP has been selected as a finalist in the "Legal Team of the Year" category for the Family Wealth Report Awards. The annual award program recognizes the most innovative and exceptional firms, teams and individuals serving the family office, family wealth management and trusted advisor communities in North America. Winners will be announced on May 6 in Family Wealth Report alongside a series of videos and publications.
"We are delighted to have been selected by the judges, again, as a finalist for these prestigious industry awards," said R. Scott Beach, chair of the Day Pitney Corporate and Business Law department and the Family Office Practice group. "It is an honor to continue to be recognized for the work we do every day to ensure that our clients are getting best-in-class service and industry insights as we advise them in achieving their objectives."
Stephen Harris, ClearView Financial Media's Chief Executive, and publisher of Family Wealth Report, was first to extend his congratulations to all finalists. He said: "The firms and individuals who are finalists in our 8th Family Wealth Report Awards program are all worthy competitors, and I would like to extend my heartiest congratulations. These awards are judged by an independent panel of judges and finalists are selected on the basis of entrants' submissions and their response to a number of specific questions, which had to be answered focusing on the client experience, and not only quantitative performance metrics. That is a unique, and I believe, compelling feature. These awards will recognize the very best operators in the private client industry, with 'independence', 'integrity' and 'genuine insight' the watchwords of the judging process - such that the awards truly reflect excellence in family wealth management. I'm delighted that we have made these annual awards the brightest, and most keenly contested highlights in the family wealth management calendar."
Day Pitney was named "Law Firm of the Year" by Family Wealth Report in 2017. This year, the firm was also shortlisted in the category "Best Law Firm - Estates and Trusts" for the Private Asset Management Awards, which it won in 2020.
In October 2023, Day Pitney represented a state pension system client in connection with a $200 million investment in a $20 billion private equity fund, and its accompanying co-investment vehicle, focused on acquiring, operating and disposing of financing, software, data and technology-enabled businesses.
