Richard Lyons and Sean McGowan have been elevated to partner at Hasbrouck Heights law firm Bertone Piccini LLP.
Lyons first joined the firm as a summer associate in June 2013 and then as an associate in September 2014. He focuses his practice on business and corporate transactions, commercial real estate, construction and health care.
McGowan practices real estate, land use, and development law. Prior to joining Bertone Piccini in 2017, he was vice president of development and legal affairs at Meridia-Capodagli Property Co. in Linden, where he oversaw the development and entitlement process for more than 2,000 multifamily residential units, retail and warehouse space. McGowan also serves as counsel to several public agencies in Caldwell, where he lives.
“Our new partners bolster Bertone Piccini’s ability to deliver smart, fast, effective solutions to clients. This includes Richard’s specialized corporate and health care knowledge and Sean’s redevelopment experience, largely unseen in the legal industry,” said Partner Jeremy Piccini, who founded the firm with Partner Grace Bertone. “They provide the depth of knowledge, breadth of experience and responsive service that Bertone Piccini is recognized for–strengthening our firm and relationships with the business community.”
Since it was founded in 2010, the firm has grown to 14 attorneys focusing on practice areas including commercial real estate, corporate and business transactions, litigation, employment, estate planning, health care and more.
