Hartford, Conn. (January 8, 2016)
- Day Pitney is pleased to announce that the merger with Florida-based law firm Chapin, Ballerano & Cheslack has closed, allowing the firm to expand its East Coast presence.
The seven attorneys joining Day Pitney’s Trusts and Estates and Corporate practices-- James A. Ballerano, Jr., Brian Cheslack, Robert Chapin, Stanley Greene, Jay L. Kauffman, Jay D. Mussman and Brian E. Thompson-- will work of out of the existing Delray Beach and Boca Raton offices.
"The addition of the talented Chapin Ballerano & Cheslack attorneys will help us better serve our existing Florida clients and allow us to expand our clientele and capabilities in the Florida market," said Trusts and Estates Chair Gregory Hayes. "Our clients are increasingly interested in taking advantage of Florida’s tax-friendly environment."
Day Pitney’s prestigious Trusts and Estates practice has 60 attorneys, making it one of the largest and most sophisticated trusts and estates practices in the country.
