Partner Ravi Bhalla Departs FPSF to Transition to Hoboken City Hall as Mayor

We would like to congratulate our Partner and friend Ravinder S. Bhalla who is leaving the firm Friday, December 29th to assume his full-time position as Mayor of the City of Hoboken, New Jersey on Monday, January 1st, 2018.

Ravi made history this past November becoming the first Sikh to be elected to a mayoral position in a municipality in the State of New Jersey. Ravi has been serving as a councilman-at-large of the one-square-mile-city since 2009. An Indian-American born and raised in New Jersey, Ravi was endorsed this past June by Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer who decided not to seek re-election to a third term.

"Leaving the firm is bittersweet as I will truly miss the partners, associates, staff members and clients who I have worked so closely with at Florio Perrucci Steinhardt & Fader over the past four years. I am so grateful to have been part of such a remarkable team," said Ravi. 


Memorial Services for Our Partner, Paul T. Fader

To our clients, colleagues and friends:

Memorial services for our Partner, Paul T. Fader, will be held Saturday, December 16, 2017, at 12:30 pm at Dwight Morrow High School, 274 Knickerbocker Road, in Englewood, NJ. Paul passed away suddenly on Monday, December 11, 2017.  His death is mourned by all who knew him. 

Paul joined Governor James J. Florio, Michael J. Perrucci and Douglas J. Steinhardt in January 2006, and Florio Perrucci Steinhardt & Fader, LLC, was formed.  At FPSF, Paul served as a member of the Firm’s Executive Committee and Chair of the government, regulatory affairs and lobbying practice groups. He represented numerous public and private clients, concentrating his practice in the areas of governmental affairs, redevelopment, real estate and land use law, and construction and public contracting.

In reflecting on Paul’s 58 years, Governor Jim Florio noted that, “Paul was an accomplished lawyer and dedicated public servant whose resume reads like the American success story it was.  After overcoming the challenges of youth, Paul rose to the highest levels of State government where he served as Chief Counsel to New Jersey Governors Richard J. Codey and James E. McGreevey, and provided legal counsel to, and representation for, the Governor of the State of New Jersey on issues involving all aspects of state government.  His impact on this State is evident from the Port of Newark to the Port of Camden, and everywhere in between.”
