January 2018: It is with great sadness and regret that we report the passing January 4 of New Jersey member firm Carella Byrne name partner and former New Jersey governor Brendan Byrne at the age of 93. He was among the original 17 governors who founded SCG Legal in 1989. Governor Byrne was first elected New Jersey’s chief executive in 1973 in one of the biggest landslides in the state’s history. He was reelected in 1977. After leaving office, he joined Carella Byrne, and also became part owner of the New Jersey Devils hockey team. A beloved presence at SCG Legal meetings, he will be remembered always for his keen political sense, formidable legal skills and sharp wit.
