Value-Adds for Family Office Clients: Cybersecurity + Art Law

Day Pitney provides a full-service practice that advises family offices and private clients across numerous industries. Cybersecurity and art law are critical areas affecting family offices, and Day Pitney has implemented initiatives in each space to provide clients with the information, tools and services they need to
attain practical, cost-effective solutions for their personal and business objectives.

Cyber – In a digital age, organizations must confront a range of potentially devastating risks. As a consequence of their clients’ wealth, family offices are tempting targets for online thieves, extortionists, con artists and hacktivists. Day Pitney offers a world-class team that delivers the common-sense but technologically-savvy advice that family offices and their constituencies need to reduce overall vulnerability, and to limit the fallout should a cyber-attack occur. Protecting families from financial loss and reputational damage is our primary goal.

Jed Davis, partner in the firm’s New York office and former federal cybercrimes prosecutor, leads our expansive team. He recently authored an article for Trusts & Estates detailing recommendations to reduce cyber-risk. Davis also conducted an insightful webinar, addressing cybersecurity threats to family offices and detailing cost-effective measures to curtail such risks.

Art – which partner Von Sanborn calls “the most emotional asset class” – has become a vital component to providing top notch service to family offices. In February, Day Pitney added Sanborn, who is a renowned art law and international tax lawyer. Sanborn sat down with CT Law Tribune for a Q&A on his art law practice.

Whether the client is buying, selling, donating, loaning, borrowing against or otherwise transacting in art, Day Pitney excels at properly protecting those clients with appropriate legal documentation and counsel.
