Partner Kathleen Barnett Einhorn was recently profiled by New Jersey Super Lawyer 2019 edition in an article entitled, "It's Handled: Got a Billion-Dollar Problem? Give Kathleen Barnett Einhorn a Week".
The article delves into Ms. Einhorn's career highlights but also her role at Genova Burns and as a mentor to female associates, "Here, I will tell women, ‘You have to work harder.’ It’s not fair, but it is what it is, I would like to get to a point where you don’t have to say that to women. I have to believe that over time it will be easier, but my message is still you’ve got to do more. We’re still at a disadvantage."
Einhorn does what she can for the next generation. She was past chair of the New Jersey Bar’s Women in the Profession Section; and with the New Jersey Women Lawyers Association, she helps direct scholarships to students who are pursuing law degrees in New Jersey.
"She takes that role very seriously," says Christine Amalfe, who chairs the labor and employment department at Gibbons and served as trustee for the state bar’s Women in the Profession Section. "She actually listens to what younger women are experiencing. She tries to understand where they are having challenges. She provides advice to help women lawyers overcome obstacles so they can reach their career goals. She was instrumental in designing professional development and networking programs for women lawyers, and also in providing mentoring to help women lawyers achieve their career and life goals."
