Thank you for your interest in Vitt & Associates. We want you to know that sending information to us by e-mail and/or through the internet does not create an attorney-client relationship. Formation of an attorney-client relationship—and a duty on our part to keep information confidential—can occur only after we check for any possible conflicts of interest and we reach an agreement with you on the scope and terms of the representation. Until such time, you should limit your communication to the minimum information necessary to allow us to contact you. If you don't become a client, Vitt & Associates will not be precluded from representing another client adverse to you in the future, even if you send us material you consider confidential and sensitive and even in a matter where the information you transmit to the firm could be used against you.

By clicking ‘EMAIL’ you understand and agree to these terms.

Phillipa Gage Lilienthal recently settled in Norwich, VT after two and a half years in Burgundy, France, where she was an associate professor teaching European Union law to Chinese foreign exchange students and English Business Law to French students at the Burgundy School of Business in Dijon. Now back in the region of her alma mater, Phillipa's practice focuses on civil litigation matters across substantive practice areas.

Prior to her stay in France, Phillipa was a Counsel at WilmerHale LLP in Boston in its Business Litigation Department, with a focus on securities litigation, securities enforcement and white collar defense. During her years at WilmerHale, she represented clients in the pharmaceutical, medical device, financial services, technology and banking sectors in high-stakes civil and criminal litigation.

In particular, she defended public and private companies in class actions involving securities fraud allegations, including those arising out of ERISA violations, mergers and acquisitions and public offerings. She also provided advice on corporate compliance issues, and in connection with Securities and Exchange Commission, FINRA and other Federal and state civil and criminal investigations.

While at WilmerHale, Phillipa also served for six months as Special Assistant District Attorney in the Somerville division of the Middlesex District Attorney's office, where she handled over two hundred criminal cases and first-chaired numerous jury and bench trials.
