Pullman & Comley Marks Expansion of Westport Office

WESTPORT, Conn. — Pullman & Comley, one of the largest full-service law firms based in Connecticut, celebrated its newly expanded Westport office on April 10 by hosting a reception welcoming local business and government leaders, including Westport First Selectwoman Jennifer Tooker.

Pullman & Comley opened its current Westport office in 2019 in order to serve growing legal needs of individuals and businesses in lower Fairfield County. Following consistent growth each year, the firm recently doubled its Westport footprint at 253 Post Road West. The firm also has Connecticut offices in Bridgeport and Hartford, as well as in White Plains, New York; Springfield, Massachusetts; and Wakefield, Rhode Island.

“When we opened the Westport office, we knew this was a key location for our firm, and it has been exciting to be a part of the growth that Westport and the surrounding Fairfield County communities have experienced over the past five years,” said Pullman & Comley chair Lee Hoffman. “We’re fortunate to have been able to support and be a part of the great things happening in and around Westport.”

Pullman & Comley recently has added several locally well-known attorneys to the firm’s Westport office. These include real estate attorney W. Glenn Major, who joined the firm earlier this year; prominent Westport civil trial attorney Frederic Ury; and Fairfield County trusts and estates attorney Sebastian D’Acunto, who both came to the firm in 2022. They joined key attorneys in the Westport office including Livia DeFilippis Barndollar, Adam Cohen, Joshua Cole, Stephen Cowherd, and Lauren Davies.

"Having been in small firms for my entire career, having the additional in-house resources across a full range of practice areas to better serve my clients was very appealing to me," Major told Law360 upon joining Pullman & Comley. "While it's a larger firm with multiple offices, Pullman has the strong culture, hometown feel and personal focus that is so important for me to provide to my clients."

The Westport office offers clients the full range of Pullman & Comley’s many integrated practice areas with particular emphasis on family law, trusts and estates, real estate (both commercial and residential), litigation, municipal law, business disputes, and condos, residential associations and community organizations.
