Carmody Torrance Sandak & Hennessey LLP (Carmody) mourns the passing of our friend and colleague, Anthony M. Fitzgerald.
Following a distinguished career of nearly 50 years, Tony Fitzgerald is recognized by his colleagues for his superior work and commitment to the legal profession. His expertise, dedicated work ethic, and outstanding advocacy on behalf of his clients put him among the top trial and utilities lawyers.
Tony had a wealth of civil trial experience, much of it gained in years as a personal injury defense lawyer early in his career. His civil litigation practice concentrated on business disputes and the representation of lawyers and law firms. He also represented energy companies in regulatory proceedings and related litigation concerning the permitting of large infrastructure projects, such as electric transmission lines and natural gas pipelines. In both practices, Tony focused on intensive early case assessment to develop an efficient strategy designed to produce the best practical outcome.
After completing his undergraduate degree at Yale University in 1966, Tony attended Columbia Law School where he earned his J.D. in 1969. He received multiple distinctions throughout his career, including Connecticut Super Lawyers®, Benchmark Litigation, Best Lawyers in America and Martindale-Hubbell© Peer Review Ratings. He was also highlighted by Chambers USA Guide to America’s Leading Lawyers for Business for placing in the Top Tier of Lawyers in Connecticut.
“Tony was a beloved and admired colleague of everyone at the firm. He was a man of great intellect and humor. We will all miss him deeply.” — Ann H. Zucker, Managing Partner
