Ridgewood July 15, 2009 THE VILLADOM TIMES II • Page 7 Dunican named secretary of State Bar Foundation Patrick C. Dunican Jr., chairman and managing director of Gibbons P.C., Newark, has been elected secretary of the New Jersey State Bar Foundation, an organization dedicated to promoting law-related education and giving all New Jersey residents a basic understanding of the legal system. He previously served as a trustee of the foundation for two years. The Ridgewood resident was elected managing director of Gibbons in 2004, and at the age of 36 became the youngest managing director among New Jersey’s top 10 law firms. He has led the firm towards a more corporate management style, developed a mentoring program and outlined the firm’s strategic goals for the future. In 1999, Dunican became a director in the firm, and was also named the administrative directorin-charge of the then-fledgling New York office. At the time, expanding into New York was a strategic, visionary move for an established New Jersey firm, and developing that office required the skills of someone resourceful and entrepreneurial. More than up to the challenge, within five years he grew the office to 40 attorneys. He is also a member of the firm’s business and commercial litigation department, practicing in the areas of general commercial litigation, intellectual property and securities litigation in the state and federal courts of New York and New Jersey. Dunican has earned recognition for his achievements. Named one of New Jersey’s “40 under 40” by the New Jersey Law Journal and NJBIZ Magazine, he won the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award for the New Jersey region in 2007. He is a member of the New York and New Jersey state bar associations, the Bar Association of the City of New York, the American Bar Association, the Essex County Bar Association and the Association of the Federal Bar for the District of New Jersey. In addition, Dunican serves on the Council of Trustees of the New Jersey Performing Arts Center and the board of visitors for Seton Hall University School of Law. Dunican received his undergraduate degree from Iona College and his law degree cum laude from Seton Hall University School of Law. Founded in 1958, the New Jersey State Bar Foundation is the educational and philanthropic arm of the New Jersey State Bar Association. The foundation’s mission is to promote public understanding of the law through a free, comprehensive public education program.
