Whitman Breed

is a full-service law firm with a proud tradition of professional excellence across a broad spectrum of practice areas


Whitman Breed is devoted to providing sensible, thoughtful and attentive personal services to our individual and business clients. Our lawyers work with our clients in a close and collaborative relationship to guide them to practical and cost-effective solutions to their legal needs.

The Firm traces its roots to the Greenwich, Connecticut firm of Hirschberg, Pettengill and Strong as well as the New York City based firms of Whitman & Ransom and Breed Abbott & Morgan. This rich history is reflected in the composition of our Firm, which includes many attorneys with practices in both Connecticut and New York who have experience in major transactions and litigations as well as more local matters. This background gives us a unique perspective and permits us to provide effective counsel to clients ranging from large international organizations to local start-ups, from successful individuals seeking sophisticated estate and wealth transfer planning advice to young families buying their first home or facing the administration of a parent’s estate.

Be it a corporate, intellectual property, litigation, real estate, trusts and estates or tax matter, we bring the same rigorous legal discipline and personal attention to each of our clients.
