Hartford’s Day Pitney acquires Rhode Island law firm

Hartford law firm Day Pitney LLP is expanding its East Coast footprint, agreeing to acquire Howland Evangelista Kohlenberg LLP, a Providence-based boutique firm focusing on trusts and estates.

The acquisition will add nine attorneys to Day Pitney's staff, bringing the firm's total number of trust and estates attorneys to 80 when the merger is scheduled to be completed on July 1, according to Day Pitney. Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.

“Adding resources and capabilities in Rhode Island assists in further connecting our firm to all of the major markets along the East Coast," Day Pitney Managing Partner Thomas Goldberg said.

Under the deal, Day Pitney said it will retain the office in Providence. Attorneys from the Providence firm have experience in estate planning, estate settlement and trusteeship in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York and Rhode Island.
