Archer partner Gianfranco A. Pietrafesa is included in the NJBIZ 2020 “Law Power 50” list of the most influential attorneys in private practice, public service, corporate law departments and nonprofit organizations in New Jersey. Businesses look to Pietrafesa for advice on M&A transactions, corporate, LLC and employment matters, the protection of trade secrets and other confidential information, as well as the various other legal issues that businesses deal with on a daily basis. Lawyers look to him for guidance too, which puts him in the position of a frequent lecturer—he organizes and speaks at the annual New Jersey M&A Conference sponsored by the New Jersey Institute of Continuing Education, and on LLC issues at the New Jersey State Bar Association’s annual meetings. He’s also a director and past chair of the board of directors of the business law section of the New Jersey State Bar Association, and a longstanding member of its business entities committee, which drafted New Jersey’s LLC law. The Best Lawyers in America listed him as the Hackensack corporate law “lawyer of the year” for 2020; but he’s been nabbing recognition for a few decades at this point, starting with a 2002 40 under 40 recognition from the New Jersey Law Journal. Pietrafesa recently earned the prestigious 2020 Alfred C. Clapp Award for Excellence in Legal Education by the New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education.
