Associate Thomas Garlick Joins The Ranks Of Leadership Newark
October 9, 2023
Whether it’s helping with various redevelopment projects in Newark or leading the firm to victory in the acclaimed Battle of the Barristers, Genova Burns' Tom Garlick knows the power of community. Garlick, who has been at the firm for over a year, has been an integral partner in many development and real estate projects across Newark.
Garlick will continue serving Newark through his involvement with the Leadership Newark program. Its mission is to help promote social change in the city, connecting various community leaders across various disciplines to work together.
Garlick is no stranger to the city. A fresh face in Commercial Real Estate and Redevelopment, he’s assisted many residents with leases, landlord litigation, and other projects. His involvement with the Leadership Newark program will strengthen his bond with Newark and its citizens.
“Leadership Newark brings in a lot of people from a broad spectrum of professions,” Garlick explained. “We work on different leadership skills for the first year, taking classes and attending events. The second year (of the program) we work together on a project.” He later explained a business or other institution will reach out to members of Leadership Newark and apply for their help.
During his tenure at Genova Burns, Garlick has seen the growth of both commercial and residential buildings in Newark. Leadership Newark will give him another chance to learn more about the city and how he and others can help it grow and thrive.
Leadership Newark’s mission is to be a catalyst to engage, empower, connect and improve the network of community and civic leaders as they each commit to build, strengthen, and serve for the common good. Members of the Fellowship will develop the skills and knowledge of a diverse network of established and emerging leaders who will collectively and individually enhance and strengthen the vibrancy and future growth of the greater Newark region.
Genova Burns is proud of its reputation for the ability to offer a range of unsurpassed legal services in many practices areas and industries. It is truly a full-service firm on the cutting edge of market trends and opportunities with burgeoning practices such as cybersecurity, real estate incentives and cannabis as well as extensive experience in labor law, transportation and logistics law, and all aspects of corporate law, among others. The key differentiator is the Firm’s ability to operate as a large firm; however, remain nimble enough to serve clients with an unrivaled personal approach and a “we can get it done” culture for which it is recognized.
