One of New Jersey's oldest and largest firms, Pitney Hardin, is merging with Connecticut's biggest, Day, Berry & Howard, to create a 395-lawyer power with branches ranging from Boston to Washington, D.C. The new firm, to be known as Day Pitney, will come into being at year end. The amalgamation reflects both firms' need to compete in a market that is becoming increasingly regional, in which practices restricted to individual states can no longer thrive.
