The Gibbons Business & Commercial Litigation Department has been named the Commercial Litigation Department of the Year by the New Jersey Law Journal. This marks the publication’s first list of leading litigation departments, which evaluated law firms with a New Jersey presence and significant litigation results in 2012.

“We are extremely proud that the attorneys in the Gibbons Business & Commercial Litigation Department continue to earn accolades for their hard work and dedication to the firm’s clients,” says Patrick C. Dunican Jr., Chairman and Managing Director of Gibbons. “Our goal is to provide the most effective and efficient counsel to middle market businesses throughout the region.”

“This honor is a great addition to our Department’s top ranking in such publications as the Chambers USA Guide to America’s Leading Lawyers and Best Lawyers in America,” says Brian J. McMahon, Chair of the Gibbons Business & Commercial Litigation Department. “In these publications, our clients consistently commend our team’s responsive and thorough litigators, and deep bench strength.”

The Gibbons Business & Commercial Litigation Department includes more than 90 attorneys leading major litigations throughout the U.S. with and against the country’s largest law firms in matters involving significant exposure or potential recovery, representing clients across a broad range of industries and business sectors critical to the state’s economy. Gibbons handles a diverse array of litigation while delivering exceptional service and value through a number of innovative offerings: a realistic judicial perspective, provided by a formidable group of retired jurists and scores of former state and federal judicial clerks; a pioneering E-Discovery Task Force; the Business Litigation Alert blog; Litigation Support and Knowledge Management professionals fully equipped with thought-leading resources and technology; and many other client services.

The industry’s leading client and peer-review publications have long recognized Gibbons as one of the premier business litigation groups in the region. For example, the Chambers USA Guide has noted in recent years:

[T]he team provides clients with “the whole package”…[and] attracts effusive praise from interviewees. “Its work is of a uniformly high quality – it’s one of the best in New Jersey,” opine sources, who label the firm “responsive, thorough, and possessing more than enough resources to give a case everything it needs.”…“A wonderful team with an undeniably strong bench strength and a reputation for cutting-edge, high-end quality.”
