Fox Rothschild is opening a Morristown office, staffed with lawyers who of late were the core of Day Pitney’s New Jersey transactional real estate practice.

Eight attorneys made the move in January and February to Fox Rothschild in Roseland and are expected to move to the new office in June.

Firm managing partner Mark Silow said the firm’s real estate practice is “solid” though “not at breakneck speeds” as in 2004 and 2005. Still, there were “pretty consistent needs for real estate capabilities in New Jersey that we could not satisfy” and the new faces seem “to be hitting the ground running,” he adds.

The defecting Day Pitney lawyers are Robert Klausner, Deirdre Moore, Christopher Rider, Grace Shin and Mat Carlson, who join as partners, and Jennifer Solberg, who joins as an associate.
