Wigdor LLP is honored to announce that the Firm has been shortlisted for Labor and Employment Law Firm of the Year by Chambers and Partners.
Chambers and Partners is among the most prestigious law firm ranking directories in the world. The organization publishes definitive ranking tables of the leading law firms around the globe annually, based on extensive interviews and research by a team of over 200 research analysts.
For over 18 years, Wigdor LLP has paved the road to justice on behalf of victims of corporate misconduct at the highest levels. The Firm is known for representing victims in some of the most high-profile and impactful employment discrimination, sexual harassment and #MeToo cases of the 21st century. These include seven victims of alleged sexual abuse by Harvey Weinstein and over 20 victims of sexual harassment and/or discrimination at Fox News, among numerous others.
The Firm’s Founding Partner, Douglas H. Wigdor, is widely considered one of the most influential labor and employment attorneys in the United States. Mr. Wigdor was recently featured as the victim’s lawyer in the Netflix docu-series “Room 2806: The Accusation” about the infamous 2011 sexual assault case involving French politician Dominique Strauss-Kahn.
In recent months, Wigdor LLP has made international headlines for filing high-profile discrimination and harassment complaints against Amazon, Goldman Sachs, TMZ, SoulCycle, Morgan Stanley and many others. The Firm is widely known among the employment defense bar for refusing to be intimidated by large corporations with virtually unlimited resources. This reputation is a force behind the majority of the Firm’s cases settling early in litigation, often before a complaint is ever filed. These confidential settlements total over $1 Billion.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Wigdor LLP has aggressively advocated for victims of recessionary discrimination and other abuses in the workplace. During an economic downturn, businesses will often disproportionately target certain groups of workers for mass layoffs; pregnant women, working parents, employees with disabilities and workers over 60 are typically among the first to be targeted. Wigdor LLP is committed to fighting back against this form of insidious discrimination and to ensuring that workers’ fundamental right to work in a safe and harassment-free environment is protected.
Winners of the Chambers USA 2021 Awards will be announced at a virtual awards ceremony on Thursday, May 27, 2021. There is no cost to attend.
