Gibbons Ranked New Jersey’s Top Lawyer-Lobbying Firm For Fourth Consecutive Year
March 16, 2012
For the fourth year in a row, Gibbons P.C. is ranked the #1 lawyer-lobbying firm in New Jersey, according to the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission, which has just released its report on 2011 lobbying expenditures in the state. Gibbons also ranked fifth among all multi-client lobbying firms in New Jersey.
The Gibbons Government Affairs Department saw a nearly seven percent increase in lobbying revenues between 2010 and 2011. In fact, the Gibbons team outpaced its nearest competitor by more than $400,000, which resulted in the most significant percentage of the state’s overall lawyer-lobbying revenues that the firm has ever achieved.
“When there is a divided government, clients more than ever benefit from government affairs counsel to ensure that their voices are heard and their issues addressed by their elected representatives,” says Patrick C. Dunican Jr., Chairman and Managing Director of Gibbons. “With this scenario playing out on both the state and federal levels, Gibbons lawyer-lobbyists are able to leverage their high-level skills and relationships whether clients need them in Trenton, Washington, or both.”
Adds David A. Filippelli, Chair of the Gibbons Government Affairs Department, “Clients continue to turn to our team of lawyer-lobbyists because we’re different; we possess both the bipartisan relationships to ‘open doors’ and also the credibility, experience, and advocacy skills necessary to win once we’re inside.”
