Angelo Genova and Kathleen Barnett Einhorn Named to NJBIZ Law Power 50 List for 2020
June 1, 2020
The publication stated the following:
The founder of Genova Burns LLC is a fixture in New Jersey’s two biggest cities. Ten years before Amazon.com Inc. considered opening its second headquarters in Newark, Genova moved his firm there from Livingston. He continues to be a champion of the city’s redevelopment efforts. “The city has a variety of assets, from technological to cultural and educational,” he told NJBIZ recently. “There’s high-speed broadband connectivity, and educational institutions to support the labor force.” In 2018, he was recognized with a Jersey City Leadership Award for his work there. In March, the firm launched an autonomous vehicles law practice, focusing on the legal and business needs relating to this new technology and associated industries.
Kathleen Barnett Einhorn is the first female attorney to serve as an executive committee member in Genova Burns’ three-decade history, and the first to chair a practice group at the firm. Busy woman she is, though, she chairs two: the complex commercial litigation and intellectual property law practices. She’s a partner at the firm’s Newark office, and also a member in the ethics and compliance and procurement law, government contracts and bid protest litigation, and criminal defense, investigations and compliance practice groups, appellate, class action defense, construction law and litigation, crisis management, employment law and litigation, trade secrets & non-competes, franchise law, the education industry group, among others (yes, seriously). In 2019 Einhorn launched a unique fashion industry practice. Last year also brought the culmination of her work with Triple Five Group, owners of the American Dream megamall: She represented the firm in connection with litigation over bond issues, successfully obtaining dismissal of an appeal involving its construction, thus allowing the property to open. The fanfare and success have, of course, been stifled by COVID-19 for now, but without Einhorn, the project never would have reached this stage.
