Joseph Bottitta Quoted in New Jersey Law Journal Article

Firm Of Counsel Joseph A. Bottitta was quoted in a recent New Jersey Law Journal article entitled “Law Firm GC a Role for the Seasoned, but That Means Grooming a Successor”.

In the article, Mr. Bottitta discusses his position as Firm Ethics Counsel at Genova Burns, noting that “the key to being ethics counsel” is “the availability,” Bottitta said. “That’s why I don’t know if you can do it on a part-time basis.” The article goes on saying, “In order to line up potential replacements, Bottitta has “taken a few people and kind of whispered in their ear…One way he’s done that is organizing, with the help of employment law associate Allison Benz and others, seminars on social media and document metadata.”
