Wigdor LLP is pleased to announce that the Firm and 5 of its partners have been recognized as leaders in the field by the Chambers and Partners 2022 USA Guide. Being recognized as a Band 1 firm is an enormous honor and only two other firms were awarded with this ranking.
Chambers and Partners is known for its annual rankings of law firms from across the globe based on extensive research by a team of over 200 analysts.
Wigdor LLP has been a consistent leader in fighting for victims who have been unlawfully discriminated, harassed, sexually assaulted, and/or retaliated. The Firm has handled some of the most closely watched cases in these important areas well before #MeToo including its representation in 2011 of the Maid in her groundbreaking sexual assault case against prominent French politician Dominique Strauss-Kahn. Since then, the Firm has made headlines in countless cases including representing eight of the victims of alleged sexual abuse by Harvey Weinstein, over 20 victims of sexual harassment and discrimination at Fox News, and most recently the groundbreaking race discrimination case against the NFL on behalf of Brian Flores, Steve Wilks, and Ray Horton.
In 2022 so far, Wigdor LLP has repeatedly made headlines for its cases against Leon Black, Afresh, Equinox, Gucci and the New York Post, among others. The Firm frequently takes cases against household names and refuses to back down in the face of significant resources and power. No person or company is too big to face repercussions for an unsafe, unwelcome work environment.
Among the honorees are Doug Wigdor, who was recognized as a Band 1 lawyer, Partners Jeanne Christensen, Michael J. Willemin and Valdi Licul as Band 2, and David Gottlieb as an “Up and Coming” leader in the field. The hard work of everyone recognized, as well as those that weren’t, was pivotal to the Firm being recognized in the category of Labor and Employment: Mostly Plaintiffs representation in New York.
