Retired Chief Justice Chase T. Rogers is joining the law firm of Day Pitney LLP in its Hartford office.

Chase T. Rogers, retired chief justice of the Connecticut Supreme Court, will join Day Pitney LLP's Hartford office as a partner in the litigation department, effective March 19.

Rogers, whose resignation from the bench is effective today, will also serve as a member of the law firm's appellate practice group, said managing partner Stanley A. Twardy, Jr.

"Her significant experience in handling a myriad of legal issues, coupled with her knowledge of the courts, will be very beneficial to our clients," Twardy said.

Rogers became chief justice in 2007, after serving as an Appellate Court judge, and before that, a Superior Court judge in Connecticut. Key accomplishments include restructuring the civil justice system to reduce costs and improving access to justice for litigants as well as embedding a culture of openness and transparency in the judicial branch.

At Day Pitney, Rogers will continue to serve on the State Justice Institute's board of directors, where she was appointed in Dec. 2010 by President Barack Obama. She will also serve on the board of the Center for Human Trafficking Court Solutions and provide consulting services to the Institute for the Advancement of the American Legal System. She will continue in her role as an adjunct professor at the University of Connecticut School of Law.
