Gibbons Director Douglas Janacek Named “2014 Lawyer Of The Year” in Land Use & Zoning Law by 2014 Best Lawyers

Gibbons is proud to announce that Douglas J. Janacek, Chair of the Gibbons Real Property Department, was the only New Jersey lawyer to be named a “2014 Lawyer of the Year” in Land Use & Zoning Law in the 2014 edition of Best Lawyers®. Mr. Janacek was recognized in the Newark, NJ region.

Since 2009, Best Lawyers® has been designating “Lawyers of the Year” in the U.S. in high-profile legal practice areas. Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored as the “Lawyer of the Year.”

Mr. Janacek chairs the Real Property Department and is a member of the firm’s Executive Committee. His areas of concentration are real estate development, planning, permitting and redevelopment matters with emphasis on commercial, office and industrial developments. He has appeared before planning and zoning boards and governing bodies of numerous municipalities throughout the state, and also before the NJDEP, NJDOT and other state and county agencies, in connection with real estate development and redevelopment projects.

Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 36,000 leading attorneys cast almost 4.4 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
