Located in Milford, Connecticut, Hurwitz Sagarin Slossberg & Knuff is a boutique law firm with a focus on sophisticated commercial litigation and land use. We pride ourselves on our ability to handle matters with equal tenacity and legal insight as far larger firms.

Our litigation attorneys, many with federal and state clerkships and regional firm experience, have successfully litigated matters before Connecticut’s federal and state courts and have achieved favorable results in arbitrations and mediations. We routinely handle complex cases on behalf of businesses and individuals, with work spanning from contractual disputes and partnership breakups to class action lawsuits under the Connecticut Unfair Trade Practices Act (CUTPA). The firm is at the forefront of CUTPA litigation, having persuaded the Connecticut Supreme Court to affirm the Act’s applicability to business class actions and, more recently, prevailing in the first significant challenge to the application of the Cigarette Rule under CUTPA in almost 40 years.

Our land use attorneys handle sophisticated land use matters before municipal agencies across Connecticut. To date, the firm boasts positive outcomes in more than 75 municipalities for nationally recognized retailers and restaurants, hospitals, regional developers, and local businesses. Among these are municipal approvals for the largest healthcare development in the state’s history and a significant mixed-use community comprised of more than 600 apartments and retail/commercial space. Additionally, the firm’s land use attorneys have brought and defended land use appeals in the Connecticut courts on issues such as environmental and neighbor intervention and the operative legal standards for zone changes and special permits.

HSSK’s attorneys are leaders within the legal industry, actively participating in the Connecticut Bar Association and Federal Bar Council and serving as an author of the leading treatise on CUTPA. They also serve the community in a variety of ways, from appointments to the District of Connecticut Federal Grievance Committee and Statewide Grievance Committee to participation in local organizations such as the Women’s Business Development Council, the Anti-Defamation League, and Devon Rotary.
