The Firm is pleased to announce its expansion into Jersey City with the opening of GBGW’s sixth location. The new office, located at 30 Montgomery Street, will be comprised of approximately ten attorneys and includes several new additions to the Firm. Brian W. Kronick, Managing Partner, said: “Jersey City is a burgeoning venue for New Jersey's business community. What better place to establish a presence than at our clients' doorstep in Jersey City – home to many of our clients in the financial services, securities, gold coast real estate and development and port commerce industries." The Firm also announced the addition of  two new attorneys, who will be based in the Jersey City office. Partner Eugene T. Paolino has been practicing law in New Jersey for more than three decades and brings a wealth of experience in commercial law and real estate development, redevelopment law and tax abatement, zoning and land use law, commercial law, education law and corporate law. He has been general counsel to Saint Peter’s University and has played a critical role in some of Jersey City’s most iconic and significant real estate projects along New Jersey’s Hudson River “Gold Coast,” such as 77 Hudson and 101 Hudson, as well as the development of The Beacon (the former Jersey City Medical Center) and the Saint Peter’s MacMahon Student Center, together with other redevelopment projects across Jersey City and Hudson County. Associate Thomas P. Leane received his Juris Doctor from Seton Hall Law University School of Law in 2011, and his Bachelor of Arts in History and Political Science from Boston College.
