Fox Rothschild announced that it landed another partner from Day Pitney LLP to add to the eight-attorney real estate team that joined Fox in February. The attorneys will launch a new Morristown, N.J. office this summer.

Michael T. Lavigne joins Fox as a partner specializing in real estate acquisitions and financing and development. Currently based in the firm’s Roseland, N.J. office, Lavigne represents purchasers, sellers, developers, designated redevelopers, landlords and tenants in the acquisition, sale, leasing and development of residential and commercial real estate, the firm said.

Stanley L. Goodman, managing partner of the firm's Roseland office, said in a statement that the firm was delighted to welcome Lavigne to the team.

"He will be an integral member of our recently added team of northern New Jersey transactional real estate attorneys, who have assisted many leading Garden State real estate developers as well as other nationally recognized companies in the growth of their real estate portfolios," Goodman said.

A graduate of Brown University, Lavigne earned his law degree from New York University School of Law.
