Patrick Dunican Named Among the New Jersey Law Journal Distinguished Leaders


June 21, 2017

Gibbons P.C. is pleased to announce that Patrick C. Dunican Jr., the firm’s Chairman and Managing Director, has been named one of the New Jersey Law Journal’s Distinguished Leaders for 2017. This year’s Professional Excellence Awards event was held on June 20 at the Brooklake Country Club in Florham Park, NJ.

According to the New Jersey Law Journal, a total of 15 lawyers from varying stages of their careers earned a place on this list by being “the strongest of advocates” and “demonstrating clear leadership skills—as lawyers, managers, scholars, and members of the professional community.”

Mr. Dunican is a nationally recognized law firm leader who was highlighted in 2010 by Law360 as one of the nation’s most innovative law firm managing partners. Mr. Dunican has been named for seven consecutive years to NJBIZ’s “Power 100” list of the 100 most powerful people in New Jersey business. Under his leadership, Gibbons has realized significant growth propelling the firm into the AmLaw 200 in 2007. Two years later, Gibbons was one of only 20 firms nationwide to be named to the National Law Journal’s inaugural “Midsize Hot List,” which recognized firms with fewer than 300 lawyers that have found innovative ways to position themselves. Mr. Dunican is listed in New Jersey Super Lawyers for business litigation and in Best Lawyers® for commercial litigation.
