Whitman Breed is pleased to announce that Cyd Smith has again been recognized by Chambers USA as one of the leading commercial real estate lawyers in Connecticut.

Whitman Breed was featured in the Connecticut Law Tribune for its win in a nearly decade-old litigation by a major European bank seeking to enforce a judgment exceeding $300 million against the Firm’s client, an international investor. Whitman Breed and its co-counsel, Zaroff & Zaroff LLP, obtained a complete victory at trial in 2021, which was unanimously affirmed by the Connecticut Supreme Court in May 2023. Charles W. Pieterse, Wyatt R. Jansen, and John M. Hendele worked on the matter. Read the complete article here and the Supreme Court’s opinion here.
