Pullman & Comley Promotes Thomas S. Lambert to Member, Lauren C. Davies to Counsel
BRIDGEPORT, CT January 3, 2023 -- Pullman & Comley, LLC is pleased to announce the promotions of Thomas S. Lambert to member and Lauren C. Davies to counsel. Mr. Lambert and Ms. Davies are attorneys in the law firm’s Litigation and Trusts and Estates practices, respectively.
Tom Lambert represents businesses, individuals, fiduciaries and municipalities in all stages of litigation in state and federal courts as well as Connecticut’s Probate Courts. He joined Pullman & Comley in 2019 as an associate. Mr. Lambert, a current Presidential Fellow of the Connecticut Bar Association, was recently named to The Best Lawyers in America “Ones to Watch” list in three separate litigation areas for the third consecutive year. He has also been listed as a Super Lawyers “Connecticut Rising Star” since 2018 in the area of civil litigation: defense; a Moffly Media Top Lawyer in Fairfield County in 2021 in the area of Litigation; and was recognized at the Westchester & Fairfield County Business Journals’ Millennial + GenZ Awards in 2021.
Born and raised in Fairfield County, Mr. Lambert has demonstrated a commitment to his community throughout his professional career. He started his legal career serving as a summer clerk in the Fairfield Probate Court in college and an intern for U.S. Magistrate Judge William Garfinkel in the United States District Court while in law school. He now serves as chair of the Civil Litigation Committee of the Fairfield County Bar Association — where he was elected to the board of directors — and was recently elected to the Fairfield Representative Town Meeting. He received his J.D. in 2013 from Wake Forest University School of Law and his B.A., magna cum laude, from Pepperdine University in 2010.
“Tom is an accomplished litigator and works hard to deliver results for his clients,” says Monte E. Frank, co-chair of Pullman & Comley’s Litigation practice. “He shows that same passion and commitment when it comes to serving his community, both personally and professionally.”
Lauren Davies has distinguished herself among her peers while successfully building her practice by focusing on the preservation of wealth for families, estate planning, trust and estate administration and succession planning. She joined Pullman & Comley in 2018 as an associate. In addition to her experience in estate planning and estate administration, Lauren has broad experience in civil litigation, federal practice, arbitration and real estate.
Ms. Davies is a frequent speaker on estate planning, often with a particular focus on estate planning for women, and is also very active in the Fairfield County community. She was selected to Class 1 of the New England Fellows Institute of the American College of Trusts and Estates Counsel in 2022, and was selected as a Super Lawyers “Rising Star” for estate planning & probate from 2015-2021. She received her J.D. from the University of Connecticut School of Law in 2005 and her B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania in 2002.
“Lauren is an avid sailor, an apropos metaphor for the way she calmly navigates her clients through rough waters when it comes to delicate situations like estate and succession planning,” says Alan S. Parker, chair of the firm’s trusts and estates practice. “Lauren’s knowledge and ability are top notch, but it’s her empathy and devotion to her clients that truly sets her apart.”
