Five lawyers from the law firm of Genova Burns have been selected by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America, 2013 Edition. Angelo J. Genova, the firm’s co-founding Partner; Brian W. Kronick, Managing Partner; James J. McGovern III, Director of the firm’s Labor Law Practice Group; and John C. Petrella, Director of the Employment Law Practice Group, were selected as Best Lawyers in the areas of Labor Law- Management and Employment Law- Management. Mr. Genova was also selected in the areas of Commercial Litigation and Litigation- Labor and Employment. Judson M. Stein, Director of the firm’s Trusts & Estates Practice Group, was selected in the areas of Trusts & Estates and Litigation- Trusts & Estates.
Since its inception in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 41,000 leading attorneys cast almost 3.9 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
