The New Jersey Law Journal has selected Jason J. Redd, Counsel in the Government Affairs Department at Gibbons P.C., as one of its 2015 “New Leaders of the Bar.” Full profiles of this year’s honorees appeared in the July 27th issue of the New Jersey Law Journal, and a celebratory event will be held in September.

To be selected for the “New Leaders of the Bar” feature, rising legal starts under the age of 40 had to demonstrate distinct practice niches, leadership qualities, and a commitment to pro bono and charitable work. According to the publication, the 50 lawyers chosen for this list are “demonstrating the impressive work being done by young lawyers across the state.”

Building on his background in the public sector, Mr. Redd serves a broad range of clients, including some of New Jersey’s most visible advocacy groups. His longstanding relationships within state government, unique insight into the legislative process, and deep understanding of the regulatory issues faced by business sectors that are particularly significant to the New Jersey economy all shape his ability to guide clients and provide effective and innovative government relations strategies.

“Jay has distinguished himself as a trusted advisor to his clients and a great addition to the Government Affairs Department,” said Patrick C. Dunican Jr., Chairman and Managing Director of Gibbons. “We are proud of Jay and all of his accomplishments and look forward to his future as he continues to grow and advance in his career.”

Prior to working at Gibbons, Mr. Redd served as Deputy Executive Director and General Counsel to the New Jersey Senate Majority Office, responsible for advising the Senate President and members of the Democratic Caucus on various legal and policy issues. He also previously served as chief of staff to Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg, held various counsel positions in the New Jersey Senate and New Jersey General Assembly Majority Offices, and served as Deputy Policy Director to Governor Corzine during his 2009 reelection campaign.
