Day Pitney LLP

Tops in Connecticut

It has been four years since Connecticut's largest and most profitable law firm merged with one of New Jersey's largest and oldest. Day, Berry & Howard combined with Pitney Hardin on January 1, 2007 to become Day Pitney, with nine offices along the Northeast Corridor. Founded as an insurance defense firm in 1896, Day Berry weathered the recession of the 1970s by diversifying its practice. Thanks in part to its niche representing clients among the many high-tech companies based in Boston and Hartford, Day Pitney topped the Connecticut Law Tribune 25 with a $122 million revenue in 2005 (which works out to a PPP of $530,000).

Commitment to Public Service

The Day Pitney Foundation (née The Day, Berry & Howard Foundation) has been active for over 20 years. The foundation sponsors local projects in law and education, and coordinates community and pro bono efforts both within and outside of the firm. Day Pitney is a founding signatory of the American Bar Association's Pro Bono Challenge, and in 2008 the firm's lawyers and staff volunteered 10,723 hours to pro bono matters. The 2008 summer associate class also worked community service hours-they assisted at a clinic at a medical facility servicing a low income neighborhood in East Boston, picked vegetables for Foodshare at the Varney Farm in South Windsor, Conn., and volunteered at the 2008 National Junior Disability Championships and Junior International Wheelchair and Amputee Sports Games held at Rutgers University in Piscataway, N.J. Other pro bono affiliations include Lawyers for Children America, the American Civil Liberties Union of Connecticut, the Battered Women's Legal Advocacy Legal Project, the Court-Appointed Special Advocate Program and the Human Rights Asylum Program
