Fox Rothschild Corporate Department Co-Chair Peter J. Tucci was featured in an article about an historical walk at Bordentown Bluffs where Joseph-Napoleon Bonaparte, the French diplomat and nobleman and the brother of Napoleon Bonaparte, once resided.

Tucci is a member of the Bordentown Historical Society’s Board of Trustees and a prominent collector of Bonaparte memorabilia.
