March 21, 2017
Camille V. Otero, a Director in the Real Property & Environmental Department of Gibbons P.C., has been named one of New Jersey’s “Best 50 Women in Business” by NJBIZ, New Jersey’s premier business news publication. The winners were recognized at an awards reception and ceremony on March 20, 2017 and will also be highlighted in a special supplement to the March 27th edition of NJBIZ.
The Best 50 Women in Business awards program honors New Jersey’s successful and influential women in business who have been making headlines in their fields. The 50 honorees were selected by an independent panel of judges, based on their dedication to business growth in the state, professional and personal accomplishments, community involvement, and advocacy for women. Ms. Otero joins fellow Gibbons attorneys Christine A. Stearns, Karen A. Giannelli, Susanne Peticolas, Alyce C. Halchak, and Christine A. Amalfe, as well as the firm’s Executive Director and Chief Operating Officer, June M. Inderwies, as recipients of this award.
“Camille has proven herself to be an asset to both her clients and the firm at large,” stated Patrick C. Dunican Jr., Chairman and Managing Director of Gibbons. “This recognition from the broader New Jersey business community is incredibly well-deserved, and we congratulate Camille on her honor.”
At Gibbons, Ms. Otero helps clients achieve their business goals by strategically managing environmental risk associated with manufacturing operations, as well as resulting litigation. She advises clients on the expansion and modification of facilities or operations that involve environmental considerations, as well as on community relations to ensure that their operations and engagement with the communities housing those operations remain productive and harmonious. She is involved in some of the most significant, high-profile cleanups and litigation of prominent waterways in New Jersey. She also represents clients in complex contract litigations involving significant legacy environmental liability resulting from the release of hazardous substances into the environment, and she handles enforcement proceedings concerning permit and other alleged environmental violations, often reducing or eliminating her clients’ liability.
In addition, as a member of the Events Committee of the award-winning Gibbons Women’s Initiative, Ms. Otero helps to develop substantive educational programs covering various legal and business topics, as well as civic, social, and cultural networking opportunities, for firm attorneys and corporate women executives, sometimes partnering with external professional women’s organizations. She was named one of the Profiles in Diversity Journal’s Women Worth Watching in 2016 and has been ranked as a leading lawyer by Chambers USA.
