CSG Law’s Jeffrey S. Chiesa Featured on Steve Adubato’s Lessons in Leadership with Co-Host Mary Gamba on News 12+

Jeffrey S. Chiesa of Chiesa Shahinian & Giantomasi PC (“CSG Law”) will be featured on Steve Adubato’s Lessons in Leadership with Co-Host Mary Gamba on News 12+ on Saturday, June 15 where he will discuss his perspective on the law, the firm’s culture and leadership qualities as well as the move to its state-of-the-art headquarters at 105 Eisenhower Parkway in Roseland.

On this upcoming special series of “Leadership and the Law,” which airs on Saturday, June 15 at 5:00 pm and Sunday, June 16 at 10:00 am, Chiesa discussed some of the most significant developments in the industry and what their impact has been on his and his colleagues’ leadership styles.

“One of the biggest [changes] was moving into the new office,” he said. “Coming out of COVID we were closed for months and months cumulatively to over a year.”

“When I started, which was over 30 years ago, it was five days a week with jackets and ties in the office,” Chiesa said. “Now [the firm has] a more hybrid-type work environment with three days in the office that we require, which is great. As we have gotten further away from COVID, people are here more. [The firm’s dress policy] is called ‘dress for your day’ which has taken some getting used to.”

He added: “That is the reality of the law business now, in order to recruit and maintain the best people, it is still professional but just different than when I started practicing.”

As law firms transition away from pandemic-era restrictions, Chiesa highlighted the importance of developing relationships on a personal level within the firm by “attending events, hosting in-person client meetings, being introduced to someone, or simply having a conversation at the firm.”

“Being able to [network] at least three times a week, is a great way to develop and maintain relationships, and quite honestly, I love doing it,” he said.

And that is what has helped bring the next generation of attorneys to the firm, he said, as “[our attorneys] are dynamic, accomplished, and because they make the work interesting.”

He added: “I think [the younger generation] is looking for interesting experiences to do and to partner with people of high integrity.”

Much of that mindset, Chiesa said, arises as a result of the firm’s commitment to fostering a culture of professionalism.

“We have worked very hard in making sure that each [employee or] candidate that is going to be a part of our firm embraces the same mentality, professionalism, and culture as ours,” he said.
