The New Jersey Law Journal lauded Genova Burns’ Employment Litigation Practice and the firm’s winning the Employment Litigation Firm of the Year award. In an article published on June 11, the Law Journal noted that the “employment litigation group at Genova Burns had a strong 2017, successfully representing clients at the trial and appellate level, and in federal and state courts, handling a variety of matters, including labor disputes, discrimination claims, and wage class actions. Its engagements included the successful defense of the city of Irvington and its mayor, in an employee’s harassment suit. The firm represented such clients as AT&T and Hackensack University Medical Center—the former, obtaining summary judgment dismissal in an employee’s retaliation suit, and the latter, in pursuing and resolving a stolen data claim against a former hospital employee.”
John C. Petrella, Chair of the Employment Law & Litigation Practice, said, “At its core, Genova Burns is a group a great trial lawyers. … We strive to learn our clients’ businesses, what they do and what is important to them. Like the best employment litigation groups, we stay on top of developments in fair employment practices on a federal, state and local level and publish recent developments. But our attorneys, from associate to partner, reach out individually to our clients and make sure they are aware of recent changes that could affect their workplaces. We are also consistently commended for our responsiveness. When our clients reach out to us with an inquiry, we are available and respond immediately.”
