Genova, Burns & Vernoia announced today the formation of its Public Contract Law & Bid Protest Litigation Practice Group. The specialized group of attorneys, co-directed by partners Celia S. Bosco and Peter R. Yarem, will be dedicated to representing business entities which compete for public contracts from local, county and state governments, agencies and authorities and from bi-state agencies.
Angelo J. Genova, partner and co-founder, has been selected to serve on the board of the Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Newark.
The Catholic Charities board of directors consists of local leaders from Newark and the surrounding areas. “Our board members, number one, believe in our mission and are willing to carry this mission through,” stated Dr. Phil Frese, President and CEO of the Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Newark. The organization in Newark, founded in 1903, assists more than 80,000 individuals and families each year through more than 50 programs, and nationally more than 7.8 million people of all faiths, each year. “Angelo is one of the regions most outstanding attorneys and heads up one of the largest firms in the area, poised to relocate its headquarters to Newark in the fall. He is noted for his generosity and humanitarian work and it seemed like an excellent fit,” said Dr. Frese.
Mr. Genova has provided more than 25 years of trusted and sought-after counsel, all while making time to give back to his community. “It is a privilege and an honor to be invited to serve on this outstanding board,” said Genova. “Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Newark touches more than 80,000 adults and children annually and I am proud to play a small part in the development of a wide array of services for the Newark community.”
