Publisher: Day Pitney Press Release
July 26, 2021

New York, NY – Day Pitney LLP is pleased to announce that the firm and 20 attorneys in its Trusts and Estates and Individual Clients Department have been ranked in the 2021 Chambers High Net Worth (HNW) Guide,* a Chambers and Partners publication specifically aimed at the international private wealth market. The guide covers private wealth management work and related areas around the world, featuring in-depth editorials about the leading professional advisers to wealthy individuals and families in each market.

The firm again ranked in the Chambers HNW Guide for Private Wealth Law in the Nationwide Eastern Region, as well as in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York and for the first time in Rhode Island (under the name of Howland Evangelista Kohlenberg, which completed its merger with Day Pitney on July 1st). Day Pitney was recognized with Band 1 rankings for their practices in Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

Day Pitney is "particularly strong on the East Coast," according to Chambers sources. "They have a combination of pure high net worth estate planners and pure tax lawyers. They do a very nice job for clients," commented one interviewee. "They are an intelligent group of people who are very thoughtful. I think very highly of them," noted another market commentator.

With nearly 80 lawyers in the firm's Individual Clients practice, Day Pitney offers private clients one of the deepest and most experienced practices in the country. The attorneys have hundreds of years of combined experience advising individuals and their families on the full spectrum of matters related to trusts and estates and family offices. In addition, 16 attorneys are elected fellows of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC), a group of peer-elected trust and estate attorneys across the United States and abroad with more than 10 years of experience in the active practice of probate and trust law or estate planning.

Twenty attorneys were ranked for Private Wealth Law or Family/Matrimonial for High Net Worth in their respective states, including 7 attorneys who received Band 1 rankings.
