Founded thirty years ago, Genova Burns works with companies and business interests from around the globe on matters in New Jersey and the greater northeast corridor between New York City and Washington, D.C. The Firm provides an array of exceptional legal services in multiple practice areas, with the responsiveness and skill level of much larger firms while maintaining service to our clients in a personal, relationship-oriented manner.
Relationships and trust have and continue to be the ingredients to our success. Our continued growth from a four-lawyer labor and employment law boutique to a mid-size, full-service firm is based upon our consistent internal emphasis on responsiveness to the needs of our clients and communities.
Our offices are strategically located to execute on our clients’ needs throughout the region, with attorneys who are admitted to practice in, among other jurisdictions, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Connecticut. In addition, our attorneys continue to be heavily involved in the Firm's long-term vision to have a law firm that will not only provide excellent legal service to the business community but which will continue to be very much a part of the political and business community at the state and local levels.
"Pro Bono," short for pro bono publico, means "for the public good." There are many kinds of pro bono services; however, for the legal profession, it is of particular importance.
Rule 6.1 of the American Bar Association's Model Rules of Professional Conduct states: “Every lawyer has a professional responsibility to provide legal services to those unable to pay.”
We provide pro bono programs staffed by qualified attorneys with free, high-quality legal representation to eligible clients based on income or other factors that make the client legally vulnerable and in need of legal representation.
Diversity & Inclusion
At Genova Burns, diversity and inclusion matter. Having a culture that fosters an open exchange of ideas from different perspectives helps us become more effective lawyers for our clients.
We understand the importance of fostering a culture of diversity and inclusion at the firm by recruiting and retaining a staff of attorneys to represent our clients’ varying and multi-faceted backgrounds and needs. Diversity and inclusion are not just words; they are the hallmarks of our Firm, representing the values and principles of tolerance, mutual respect and integrity that we bring to our personal and professional lives.
At Genova Burns, we believe that diversity and inclusion are essential to delivering unparalleled service on every level to the clients who trust us with their most important and delicate needs.
In addition to practicing law, our attorneys are engaged members of the communities in which they live, practice and serve. Our founding partners created a law firm that would be an integral part of the political and business communities at the local and state level. This community integration and engagement make Genova Burns the right choice for any company that needs a law firm with strong civic, as well as legal, ties.
