New Leadership Appointments Announced for Executive Committee and Executive Board

Hayes has served on the firm's Executive Committee for five years and before that was Chair of the firm's Private Client Department. Discussing the transition, Goldberg said, "I've worked closely with Greg over the last five years, and he has been integral to the firm's success. I've seen up close his commitment to the core values of our firm and his steady and considerate management style. He is perfectly suited to serve as Managing Partner, and we are lucky to have him lead us." Goldberg will remain involved in the firm's strategic growth planning and initiatives in addition to continuing his litigation practice.
"I am humbled and flattered by the confidence my partners have placed in me and the rest of our firm's leadership. As Managing Partner, I am committed to the continued success of our talented attorneys and staff and our focus on the unparalleled service our clients have come to expect," said Hayes.
In addition to his leadership role, Hayes will continue to practice law, advising private clients on all aspects of their estate planning. He helps individuals and fiduciaries in the administration of complex estates and trusts and has substantial experience handling contested probate matters, including will contests and construction actions. He is a fellow of the prestigious American College of Trusts and Estates Counsel and a former member of the executive committee of the Estates and Probate Section of the Connecticut Bar Association. He has been ranked in Chambers HNW Guide* (Chambers and Partners) (click here for methodology) and named to the Best Lawyers in America* (Woodward/White, Inc.) in trusts and estates (click here, here and here for methodology).
