Our clients include electric, gas, and water utilities; debt and equity investors; generators, transmitters and marketers; equipment contractors and other energy and utility market participants.

Environmental The firm has a long history of serving the comprehensive environmental needs of clients, including in litigation and in transactional and regulatory matters throughout the U.S. Since the 1970s, we have successfully defended clients in major toxic tort cases, including large class action and multiparty suits.

Government and Internal Investigations Fortune 100 corporations, private entities and individuals call on Day Pitney’s former prosecutors and regulators to respond to government investigations, conduct internal investigations and develop regulatory compliance and ethics programs.

Individual Clients Day Pitney has one of the largest and most sophisticated practices in the country, and our lawyers have, among them, hundreds of years of experience helping our clients plan for the future. The firm advises individuals, fiduciaries, tax-exempt entities, cross-border families and family offices on a full range of estate, trust and business succession matters.

Intellectual Property and Technology Day Pitney helps clients acquire, secure, transfer, defend, enforce and understand their intellectual property rights. We prosecute patents and trademarks; negotiate and draft agreements for the license and sale of intellectual property rights; litigate intellectual property disputes in federal and state courts around the country, including before the International Trade Commission and the United States Patent and Trademark Office; and advise clients on the entire array of evolving intellectual property issues modern businesses confront, including workplace policies relating to Internet access and use, social media, and privacy.

Labor, Employment and Benefits Day Pitney guides employers through the many and ever-increasing federal, state, and local laws and regulations that impact the modern workplace to achieve practical solutions for all workplace issues. The firm covers every type of employment, labor and benefits matter. It advises on preventive strategies and provides proactive training.

Litigation With decades of experience representing small businesses and start-ups to large national and international corporations, Day Pitney's skilled trial and appellate counsel, arbitrators and mediators have established a reputation for success. Our commercial litigators offer insightful, effective strategies for overcoming obstacles and resolving disputes of varying magnitude and complexity. Each matter receives the resources that match the needs and goals of the client and appropriately address the legal issues involved. Each case is managed to achieve a time- and cost-effective resolution, including evaluating the range of strategies that can be pursued to reach the client's desired result in each case, such as arbitration, mediation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution. The firm handles challenging cases involving franchises, general commercial disputes, insurance, intellectual property, products liability, real estate and securities.

Mergers and Acquisitions Day Pitney serves as counsel on all aspects of middle-market transactions. We advise targets, acquirers and investment banks in both the fast-paced public company mergers and acquisitions practice and the more laborious private M&A practice that includes the often hotly disputed working capital adjustment and indemnification caps. We help clients navigate merger and acquisition transactions and related matters in the areas of antitrust, benefits, environmental, intellectual property, SEC compliance and tax.

They have the ability to assist clients in all phases of a transaction, including strategic planning, structuring, due diligence and closing with a consistent focus on adding value and maximizing our client’s position in the negotiation.
