Each year, PolitickerNJ ranks the 100 preeminent political party leaders, party operatives, lawyers, lobbyists, activists, and media figures populating the state’s political scene, based on the strength and scope of their influence and key relationships. The publication notes of Mr. Dunican:

Whether it’s Democrats or Republicans in power, Gibbons tends to be in the
middle of the action. As chairman of one of the state’s largest law firms,
Dunican’s influence is likely to remain constant under Murphy.

Mr. Dunican was elected Managing Director of Gibbons in 2004, at age 36, and transformed the firm into a major force in the Mid-Atlantic legal market, listed among the AmLaw 200. His focus on marketing and branding initiatives earned Gibbons a place as the only law firm featured in Steve Adubato’s book, You Are the Brand. A litigation attorney, Mr. Dunican is listed in both the New Jersey and New York editions of Thomson Reuters Super Lawyers for business litigation and in Woodward/White Best Lawyers® for commercial litigation.
