G. Verniero, Chair of Sills Cummis’ Corporate Internal Investigations and
Appellate Practice Groups, is quoted in this article about the New Jersey
Forfeiture of Public Office statute.
Jersey’s forfeiture of office statute has been applied on numerous occasions to
underscore the public’s intolerance for public corruption,' said Peter
Verniero, a former state Supreme Court justice and state attorney general, and
currently a partner at Sills Cummis & Gross in Newark. 'The forfeiture
process is undertaken under judicial supervision and is relatively straightforward.'
that perspective, it can serve as an additional deterrence to unlawful
conduct,’ added Verniero.”
