Genova Burns is pleased to congratulate Co-Founding Partner Angelo J. Genova, Esq. and Partners Kathleen Barnett Einhorn, Esq. and Rajiv D. Parikh, Esq. for being named to NJBIZ's Law Power 50 listing for 2022.
Regarding Mr. Genova, NJBIZ notes that, "There are a relative handful of lawyers who are known widely throughout New Jersey and Genova is one of them. The founder of Genova Burns has long been a fixture in New Jersey’s urban centers. Start with Newark. Ten years before Amazon.com Inc. considered opening its second headquarters in the state’s biggest city, Genova moved his firm there from Livingston. He continues to be a champion of Newark’s redevelopment efforts. Politically, Genova’s high-profile cases include fighting off a suit against the state Democratic Party in 2002 by Republicans over a last-minute ballot change prompted by then-U.S. Sen. Robert Torricelli’s decision to drop out of the race amid ethics problems. He is a former commissioner of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey; a former chairman of the New Jersey Urban Development Corp.; and counseled Gov. Jim Florio’s transition team in 1989."
Ms. Einhorn's entry reads, "Regularly recognized as one of the top attorneys in New Jersey, Einhorn – an expert in trade secret litigation – is experienced in all aspects of litigation. She oversees a team of lawyers and paraprofessionals who manage cases from start to finish. Einhorn and her team concentrate on general commercial litigation and counseling with an emphasis on a wide range of issues from fraud and misrepresentation to insurance and employment defense to First Amendment and Constitutional rights claims. Einhorn, a partner with Newark’s Genova Burns, is chair of the Complex Commercial Litigation and Intellectual Property practice groups and co-chair of the firm’s Fashion Law practice. In fact, she is the first woman at her firm to chair a department. Earlier this month, she was installed trustee-at-large for the New Jersey Woman Lawyers Association, which has a mission to advance and retain women in the legal professional through education and activism. In 2021, she was renominated to serve in the role of at-large trustee of the New Jersey State Bar Association board of trustees, a role she has held since 2019."
Mr. Parikh's post notes that as "A partner with Genova Burns, Parikh serves as chair or co-chair of a variety of teams at the firm. He leads the India Law; Construction Law & Litigation; and Election Law & Litigation practices, and is co-chair of the Crisis Management Practice and Hotels & Restaurants Industry group. In addition, he leads diversity and inclusion efforts at Genova Burns. Parikh was transition counsel for Gov. Phil Murphy and has worked closely with the governor and his team on a variety of issues. And his work in politics extends further. Parikh has served as general counsel to the Democratic State Committee for more than five years and was lead counsel on dozens of campaigns, including those of U.S. Sen. Cory Booker; South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and U.S. Reps. Bonnie Watson Coleman, Josh Gottheimer and Mikie Sherrill, among others."
