Novara, Tesija, Catenacci, McDonald & Baas
Novara, Tesija, Catenacci, McDonald, & Baas, PLLC was founded by Gary W. Novara in the late 1970's to help clients navigate ERISA, and is now managed by his son, Michael A. Novara. Since then, we have built a national ERISA and insurance defense firm which, in 2023, was named by Crain's Magazine as the fastest growing law firm and its 13th largest. To accommodate our growth, we recently opened a new Troy headquarters. With over 48,000 square feet of space, it is equipped with a number of amenities to provide our staff with a friendly, open and comfortable work environment. These amenities include a nursing mother's suite, cafeteria, open alternative work spaces, two game rooms and state of the art technology. Company benefits include fully paid medical, dental, vision, short and long term disability, life insurance and 401(k) with match. While we have been fortunate to experience growth over the years, we remain committed to the small, family firm environment which makes us unique.
To be an integral part of our clients' decision making and business planning processes rather than just a hotline to call when problems arise. To do this, we must be more than lawyers, instead we must also be counselors that learn, appreciate and understand our clients' origins and histories, their present and their future.
To create a diverse, inclusive and innovative Firm composed of attorneys who seek to solve problems and create solutions for our clients. Our strength lies in our people and the unique experiences, skills and history that each of them has brought to our Firm.
To be productive members of both the legal community, and broader community, that we live in. Our work affects the lives of people across the country, and we work to ensure that our clients and their constituents are bettered by our efforts and the services that we provide.
