Gibbons P.C. is one of only seven law firms ranked in New Jersey in the 2019 edition of Benchmark Litigation to earn a “Highly Recommended” designation, the publication’s top honor. The newest edition of Benchmark Litigation also highlights eight Gibbons attorneys as New Jersey litigation stars and one attorney as a future star.
Benchmark Litigation is the only publication on the market to focus exclusively on litigation in the United States. Firms included in the guide are chosen after a six-month research process that consists of extensive interviews with clients and peers. Attorneys must be recommended consistently as reputable and effective litigators by clients and peers in the marketplace.
The eight Gibbons attorneys named among the state litigation stars along with their areas of practice include:
Christine A. Amalfe, Employment & Labor Law
Thomas J. Cafferty, Commercial & Criminal Litigation
Kim M. Catullo, Products Liability
Patrick C. Dunican Jr., Commercial & Criminal Litigation
Michael R. Griffinger, Commercial & Criminal Litigation
Lawrence S. Lustberg, Commercial & Criminal Litigation
Brian J. McMahon, Commercial & Criminal Litigation
Peter J. Torcicollo, Commercial & Criminal Litigation
Ms. Catullo, Chair of the Products Liability Department, was also ranked among the nation’s “Top 250 Women in Litigation” for 2018. In addition, Robert C. Brady, a Director in the Commercial & Criminal Litigation Department, was highlighted in the Future Stars category. To be named a Future Star, an attorney must be consistently referenced by peers and clients as a litigator who is likely to become a “local litigation star” in future Benchmark guides.
This year, Benchmark Litigation published an additional practice specific guide for Labor & Employment. Gibbons was selected as a “recommended” firm in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, and seven Department Directors were selected as “Labor & Employment Stars – Northeast.” They are: Christine A. Amalfe, Kelly Ann Bird, Mitchell Boyarsky, Susan L. Nardone, John C. Romeo, Kristin D. Sostowski, and Richard S. Zackin.
Three Gibbons attorneys were selected to the Benchmark “Under 40 Hotlist” for 2019. These attorneys have been deemed the most promising emerging talent in their respective litigation communities by peers and clients. They are:
Joshua R. Elias, Commercial & Criminal Litigation
Samuel I. Portnoy, Commercial & Criminal Litigation
