ROI-NJ, a weekly newspaper covering business in New Jersey, has named Christine A. Stearns, a Director in the Gibbons P.C. Government & Regulatory Affairs Department and Administrative Director of the Trenton office, to its third annual “Influencers Power List” of the professionals with the greatest influence on business in the state. The list ranks New Jersey’s top 30 influencers by number, then features a select group of influential professionals in various fields. Gibbons attorneys have been featured on this list every year it has been published. The firm also has more attorneys on the 2020 list than does any other law firm in New Jersey.
Ms. Stearns appears on the list of most influential “Government Affairs” professionals for the second consecutive year. Previously selected to the NJBIZ “Health Care Power List” for several years and included on NJ Spotlight’s list of “Top 10 Healthcare Lobbyists in New Jersey,” Ms. Stearns has also been named a “Top Policy Expert” on the ROI-NJ “Health Care Influencers” list in 2018 and 2019. On this year’s “Influencers Power List,” ROI-NJ notes:
Yet another big name with plenty of experience in Trenton and government affairs, she deftly handles the needs of clients at Gibbons, one of the top government affairs groups in the state.
To compile the “Influencers Power List,” ROI-NJ editors spoke to many connected sources over several months to highlight the high-level officials in the state, county, and federal governments, as well as executives from some of New Jersey’s largest employers and organizations, who most help to strengthen New Jersey businesses.
The 2020 “Influencers Power List” also featured Gibbons Chairman and Managing Director Patrick C. Dunican Jr. (Lawyers) and Gibbons attorneys Frank T. Cannone (Lawyers) and William J. Palatucci (Consultants).
