Four attorneys with Greenbaum Rowe Smith & Davis LLP have taken new leadership positions with the New Jersey State Bar Association, including posts in its construction and environmental law sections.
The practitioners include Stephanie G. Reckord, who assumes the role of construction law section co-chair. A partner in Greenbaum Rowe’s litigation and family law departments, she focuses on complex commercial litigation in federal and state courts, representing clients in the areas of banking, employment, family law, trusts and estates, class action defense, consumer fraud, construction and commercial real estate.
Meantime, the NJSBA has installed Kersten Kortbawi as co-secretary of the construction law section. She is a partner in Greenbaum’s litigation department and an experienced commercial litigator at the state and federal levels, the firm said, noting that her work encompasses complex construction disputes, consumer fraud claims, private equity fraud, personal injury actions, product liability matters and insurance defense disputes.
Also assuming a key post is Monica P. Schroeck, counsel in the firm’s environmental department, who is now chair of the NJSBA environmental law section. She advises public and private entities on issues associated with real estate and corporate transactions and in environmental litigation, with experience encompassing a broad range of environmental and land use issues, including matters associated with natural gas generation and power metering based on her engineering background.
Greenbaum Rowe noted that the attorneys were sworn in at the NJSBA’s 2023 Annual Meeting and Convention in Atlantic City. The installation also included Jemi Goulian Lucey, a partner in the employment law, litigation and health care departments, as co-chair of the NJSBA higher education special committee.
