Day Pitney Welcomes Incoming Associate Class

Eight new associates have joined East Coast firm Day Pitney to kick off the fall, including three new attorneys in the firm’s Hartford office.

“We proudly welcome these exceptional individuals, who will greatly contribute to the top-quality legal services we provide,” said Tom Goldberg, managing partner. “Our new associates are a diverse mix of accomplished attorneys with valuable hands-on experience and insights gained through judicial clerkships and summer associate positions, which will immediately benefit our clients.”

New associates in Hartford include Andrew M. Ammirati, in the complex commercial litigation department. Ammirati was a summer associate in 2017 and recently clerked for Connecticut Supreme Court Chief Justice Richard Robinson. He received his law degree from the University of Connecticut School of Law.

Joining Ammirati in complex commercial litigation is Matthew W. Austin, who was a summer associate last year. He also received his law degree from the University of Connecticut School of Law.

Finally, Kara A. Zarchin has joined Day Pitney’s insurance and reinsurance department in Hartford. Zarchin was a summer associate in 2017 and most recently clerked for Connecticut Supreme Court Associate Justice Richard Palmer. She too received her law degree from the University of Connecticut School of Law.

Firmwide, new hires also include four new attorneys in New Jersey: Deanna Christian, in Day Pitney’s private equity and finance department; Erin Hodgson in complex commercial litigation; Amanda Kronemeyer in real estate and land use; and Palak Sharma in complex commercial litigation.

In Boston, Day Pitney added Kaitlyn C. Sapp to the trusts and estates group. The firm has more than 300 attorneys in Connecticut, Boston, Florida, New Jersey, New York and Washington, D.C.

Morgan Lewis Adds Three-Partner Team

Philadelphia-based Morgan, Lewis & Bockius has announced the addition of a three-partner corporate restructuring team, including one working out of the firm’s Hartford office.

Migrating from Bracewell, where he served as a managing partner in Connecticut and chairman of the financial restructuring department, Kurt Mayr joins as a resident in the Hartford and New York offices. Mayr works with creditors on complex restructuring, including the current restructuring of Puerto Rico’s debt. He works with the financial services, energy, automotive and tribal gaming industries.

Mayr’s former colleagues at Bracewell, Kristen Campana and Jennifer Feldsher, will work in Morgan Lewis’ New York office. Campana represents a wide variety of direct and alternative lenders in domestic and cross-border financings, and Feldsher has spearheaded all aspects of the bankruptcy process for debtor and creditor clients, including Chapter 11 proceedings for national and international clients.

“We are delighted that Kurt, Jennifer, and Kristen are reuniting at Morgan Lewis,” said firm Chairwoman Jami McKeon. “They are well known to creditors around the world for their wide-ranging industry experience.”
