John Vreeland Featured in NJBiz Article on Living and Working in Newark
June 3, 2013
Firm Counsel John Vreeland, Director of Genova Burns’s Wage & Hour Compliance Practice Group was featured in NJBiz's June 3 issue in Josh Burd’s Spotlight article, If You Build It, They Will Come. The article discusses the advantages to living and working in the city: "Sparta resident John Vreeland was already prone to commuting nightmares when his law firm, Genova Burns — which has since been renamed Genova Burns — decided in 2007 it would move from Livingston to Newark. But soon thereafter he made a move of his own — to the city's Ironbound section — giving himself a trip of mere minutes, not to mention a leg up for his labor practice. 'For me, being actually in Newark would help in terms of getting out there, being closer to the firm's clients, and being closer to potential clients,' said Vreeland, 44, director of the firm's wage and hour compliance practice group. 'So it was part of the plan for both my personal commute and my practice.' "
