For the 15th 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 2022 lobbying expenditures in the state. The firm also ranked sixth in the state among all lobbying practices.

In 2022, 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, Patrick C. Dunican Jr., Executive Chairperson of Gibbons, in particular, has worked to ensure that the team has had all the necessary resources to build its award-winning practice, and he 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.

“It is an extraordinary accomplishment to be recognized as the state’s top lawyer-lobbying firm for 15 consecutive years, and we congratulate our Government & Regulatory Affairs Group attorneys for this well-earned distinction,” said Mr. Dunican.

Peter J. Torcicollo, the firm’s Managing Director, added, “Fifteen years is indeed noteworthy. Our talented lawyer-lobbyists remain focused on helping clients achieve their business goals, maintaining excellent working relationships in both the executive and legislative branches, in both parties and in both Trenton and Washington.”

“I am so pleased that our clients continue to seek out our government and regulatory affairs expertise,” said David J. Pascrell, Chair of the firm’s Government & Regulatory Affairs Group. “Fifteen years at the top of any list among law firms in New Jersey is a wonderful milestone,” he added.

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 recognition, including the practice itself and many of its members being highly ranked in U.S. News – Best Lawyers® Best Law Firms and Woodward/White Best Lawyers® for the past several years.
