March 12, 2024

For the 16th year in a row, Gibbons P.C. has been ranked the #1 lawyer-lobbying firm by revenue in New Jersey, according to the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission (NJ ELEC), which today released its report on 2023 lobbying expenditures in the state. The firm also ranked sixth in the state among all lobbying practices.

In 2023, the Gibbons Government & Regulatory Affairs Group increased its revenues and had an uptick of reported clients over the prior year. Gibbons opened its Trenton office and launched its Government & Regulatory Affairs Group in 2002 to offer public, private, and nonprofit sector clients the legal, policy, and government affairs guidance needed to most effectively execute their missions. The firm built a team of distinguished lawyer-lobbyists who provide cutting-edge advocacy to make clients’ voices heard at the right times and by the right people. Over the past 20 years, the team has established, nurtured, and strengthened the firm’s relationships with various elected officials and other policymakers throughout the legislative and executive branches at the local, state, and federal levels.

“I am so proud of our team’s accomplishments as advocates in Trenton and around New Jersey and am grateful for this ongoing recognition,” said David J. Pascrell, Chair and Co-founder of the Government & Regulatory Affairs Group. “For more than two decades, we have been tackling the legislative and regulatory issues that have critical impact on bottom lines, and we continue to provide creative, strategic solutions to our clients.”

“These rankings reflect our lawyer-lobbyists’ significant influence in Trenton and Washington, DC, as well as their extraordinary skill in helping our clients seize business opportunities and effectively manage the challenges inherent in legislative and regulatory processes,” added Peter J. Torcicollo, the firm’s Managing Director.

Based just steps from the New Jersey State House in Trenton and supported by additional resources from the firm’s Newark and Red Bank offices, the Gibbons Government & Regulatory Affairs Group today offers a broad range of services and experience in state legislative affairs, regulatory affairs and departmental actions, administrative law, business incentives, government procurement and contracting, and political and campaign finance compliance. In addition, the firm’s Washington, DC office provides Gibbons lawyer-lobbyists a base from which to more efficiently handle federal regulatory concerns and government relations strategies with on-the-ground guidance wherever client issues may arise.

Building on its longstanding NJ ELEC ranking, the Gibbons Government & Regulatory Affairs Group has earned additional acknowledgments, and many of its members have also been recognized by Best Lawyers®, conferred by BL Rankings, LLC d/b/a Best Lawyers and Co., LLC.
