Day Pitney is recognised for its strength in domestic and international private wealth matters. "They are a very international practice and their reputation is more focused on non-US-based clients," reports a New York-based industry source.

Market commentators note in particular the firm's strength in the Eastern region. "They have a strong team in Connecticut, in New York and have a presence in Florida," observes an interviewee. Another source states that "they are best known internationally and are a strong regional name on the East Coast," before also adding that the firm has "some great people in Boston."
