About The Firm

Committed To Our Clients

Founded over twenty five years ago, Genova Burns represents many of the premier companies and business interests in the region. The firm’s commitment is to provide its clients with representation at the highest standard of excellence but in a mid-size, regional setting. Unlike today’s “mega”-firms, Genova Burns, while large enough to provide a full range of expertise and practice areas, is small enough to service the business client in a personal, relationship-oriented manner. The firm’s culture is based on providing excellent communication and service to our clients, and we understand that we are ultimately defined by the quality of our client relationships.

Connected To The Region

Genova Burns has strategically located offices to assure clients complete coverage. The unique geographical footprint of the firm straddles “the pathway” between Wall Street and Center City, Philadelphia. The firm’s main office is in Newark, New Jersey’s largest city and its business hub. Our Manhattan office is located at 115 Broadway in the heart of New York’s financial district. Nearly half the firm’s attorneys, including most of our litigation and labor law practitioners, are members of the bars of New York and New Jersey. Attorneys in the firm’s Camden and Philadelphia offices are members of the bars of New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The firm’s four New Jersey offices cover the entire State, are connected by mass transit and offer ready access to courts in all twenty-one counties. The firm’s attorneys practice regularly before the Federal courts in the Southern District of New York and the Eastern District of Pennsylvania and state courts throughout lower New York State and Eastern Pennsylvania, as well as in all New Jersey’s state and federal courts.

Included In The Community

The present day Genova Burns is the result of a long-term vision of the founders to create a law firm that would not only provide excellent legal services to the business community but which also would be very much a part of the political and business community structure at the state and local level. It is a main ingredient to our culture that attorneys become active members of the business and civic world in which they live. Over the years, Genova Burns has also served as counsel to many of the key trade associations and lobbying firms in the States of New Jersey and New York. This integration with the community makes Genova Burns the right choice for any company that needs a law firm with strong connections “on the ground” in our region.
