NJBIZ Lists Patrick Dunican Among Its 2021 “Power 100”


February 22, 2021

For the eleventh consecutive year, NJBIZ has featured Patrick C. Dunican Jr., Chairman and Managing Director of Gibbons P.C., on its annual “Power 100” list of the most influential people in New Jersey business. Mr. Dunican is one of the very few people to be named to this list every year it has been published.

This year, NJBIZ notes of Mr. Dunican:

Dunican continues to lead one of the state’s largest and most well-connected law firms along with overseeing the state’s number one lawyer-lobbying practice … [I]n November, Gibbons was selected as a top-three law firm and a top-three lobbying firm in the state for the fourth year in a row in the NJBIZ Reader Rankings, the only firm in the state to achieve these dual distinctions every year the rankings have been published. While figuring out how to run his own firm under COVID parameters – which he did, thanks to comprehensive emergency planning he implemented long ago – Dunican also conceived the firm’s client alert series, “The Coronavirus Pandemic and Your Business: How We Can Help,” which has provided ongoing communications on evolving pandemic-related legal and business issues. At the height of the pandemic, that was up to four alerts a day.

To compile the “Power 100” list, NJBIZ editors and staff conducted extensive research aimed at determining the business leaders, educators, legislators, and other high-level personnel across the state who have affected positive changes and helped foster meaningful growth in New Jersey business. This year’s issue ranks the 10 most powerful people in New Jersey business in numerical order and lists the remaining 90 in alphabetical order and organized by industry sector.
