Day Pitney has announced the promotion of veteran commercial litigator and partner Thomas D. Goldberg to managing partner of the nearly 300-strong firm, effective April 2.
“Tom is a natural leader who exemplifies the firm’s core values,” said Day Pitney’s current managing partner, Stanley A. Twardy Jr. “Having worked with Tom on the executive committee for the past six years, I know that we are fortunate to have him in this role.” Twardy will remain involved in the firm’s strategic planning and will continue his practice.
The firm has also elected partner Gregory A. Hayes to serve on its executive committee, which includes Goldberg and current member Mary B. Rogers. Partner B. Dane Dudley will succeed Hayes as chairman of the firm’s Individual Clients Department.
Goldberg will continue to represent clients in complex commercial litigation, including disputes involving shareholders and securities, contracts and bankruptcy and defending accountants’ liability and legal malpractice claims. He is a former chairman of the board of Connecticut Legal Services, the largest provider of pro bono representation to low-income people in the state. He also has been actively involved in the Federal Bar Council and has served on its board of trustees.
Goldberg earned his law degree from Columbia Law School, where he was a member of the Columbia Law Review, and his undergraduate degree from Brown University.
“It is an honor and a privilege to have the opportunity to serve as Day Pitney’s next managing partner,” Goldberg said. “I look forward to building on the firm’s successes and continuing to drive our deep commitment to client service on every level within the firm.”
