Genova Burns LLC is poised to expand by integrating the Bankruptcy Law boutique Wasserman, Jurista & Stolz into the firm effective on January 1, 2021. With the addition of the WJS team, Genova Burns will continue its trajectory of growth into strategically selected practice areas to supplement its diverse menu of services now available to its clients. Genova Burns will grow its geographic footprint and enhance client accessibility with the addition of an office in Basking Ridge NJ on 110 Allen Road adding to its current six locations in the region.
“We are excited to start 2021 by welcoming this talented and respected group of professionals to our firm,” said Angelo J. Genova, Esq., Chairman & Managing Partner of Genova Burns LLC. “Wasserman Jurista & Stolz brings a tradition of excellence which matches our own commitment to the highest quality in legal services. WJS is a household name among the bankruptcy bar and bench and we are so very fortunate that Dan Stolz and his team have chosen to build upon that reputation by making Genova Burns their new home. I don’t think there is a more important time than now for a law firm to possess the skill sets that the WJS bankruptcy team brings to our clients as we face the daunting economic consequences of the current public health crisis.”
Wasserman Jurista & Stolz Managing Partner Dan Stolz sees the integration of the two firms as the right fit at the right time. “WJS will now have the platform to meet our own growth objectives, expand our geographical footprint, and service a growing institutional client base in need of bankruptcy law and restructuring services. Stolz added: “Based on my experience with Genova Burns for decades, the compatibility of our firm cultures and GB’s evident professional success, we believe Genova provides an ideal opportunity and an environment for successful synergies for the mutual benefit of our clients. I am confident we can do all of this and more by joining Genova Burns.” Stolz will Chair the Bankruptcy and Restructuring practice at Genova Burns while at the same time he assumes the leadership role of Communications Director for the Bankruptcy section of the Association of the Federal Bankruptcy Bar.
Stolz will join Genova Burns as a Partner with Steven Jurista joining as "Of Counsel”, Scott Revers as Counsel and Don Clarke as Counsel. With their addition Genova Burns attorney complement grows to 75 attorneys. The firm will continue to operate under the name Genova Burns LLC.
