Edward M. Genson (born c. 1941) is a Chicago attorney who has represented high profile defendants such as musician R. Kelly, newspaper owner Conrad Black, and Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich.

Genson was born June 30, 1941. He received a B.A. degree from Northwestern University in 1962, and a J.D. from its law school in 1965.
