NJBIZ has ranked Lowenstein Sandler’s Litigation Chair Christopher Porrino, former Attorney General of the State of New Jersey, as number two on its 2023 NJBIZ Power 100 list.

In its profile of Porrino, the publication states: “Is there a better lawyer in New Jersey than Porrino? Arguably, no.” The article goes on to note that the “former state attorney general is now plying his craft at Lowenstein Sandler, and doing a remarkable job,” calling him “a topflight litigator— one with connections on both sides of the political aisle, making him the man to see in New Jersey. In a real sense, he is New Jersey’s Edward Bennett Williams, the ultimate insider with a brilliant legal mind. If you have a legal problem in New Jersey, Porrino is the person you want on your side.”

NJBiz further details Porrino’s ongoing advocacy on behalf of criminal justice reform, as well as his role as Chairman of the Newark Police Foundation, where he is “making good on his promise to provide opportunities for friendly interactions between police and Newark’s young people.”

Porrino has been consistently included in these rankings since returning to private practice at Lowenstein in 2018, after years in public service as the state’s the 60th Attorney General and Chief Counsel to the Governor.

As Chair of the firm’s Litigation department, Porrino helps Fortune 500 clients achieve critical goals and defend against seemingly insurmountable challenges. He advises and represents businesses and individuals in civil, criminal, and regulatory matters involving securities, consumer fraud, banking, alcoholic beverage control, gaming, cannabis, energy, insurance, tax, antitrust, real estate, and the environment, among others. He also conducts internal investigations for clients faced with allegations of wrongdoing or suspected wrongdoing by insiders.

According to the publication, NJBiz’s power lists are compiled by its editorial staff based on their reporting throughout the past year with input from experts in a variety of fields and recommendations from readers. The staff looks for people who have gained public attention – and perhaps acclaim – for their professional accomplishments and public service. Honorees have contributed meaningfully to the advancement of the public interest through their work and/or community service.
