Wigdor LLP has brought sexual harassment cases against the world’s most powerful corporations, affluent and influential individuals, celebrities and politicians. We have developed a reputation for our aggressive approach to negotiating and litigating sexual harassment cases and believe that no other firm in New York City has the breadth of our experience. As a result we have secured numerous multi-million dollar settlements on behalf of our clients. One of our former client’s said it best:
“My experience with the Firm was empowering because I know that many women out there are too scared of standing up for what’s right out of fear of losing their job, or not being let back into the industry. Women need to know there’s a place they can go to get what they deserve.”
Some of our largest settlements and verdicts come from sexual harassment and sexual assault cases and we litigate these sexual harassment cases aggressively. Wigdor LLP has successfully represented both executives of Fortune 100 companies as well as minimum wage earners in their fight for justice against sexual harassment.
Sexual harassment can cause significant economic and emotional harm. If you believe you have been subjected to unlawful sexual harassment, it is important to contact an experienced sexual harassment attorney as soon as possible to ensure that you are fairly compensated.
Wigdor LLP is New York City’s preeminent law firm for victims of sexual harassment or sexual assault. We have the staff and resources to take on any level of sexual harassment case, outwork and overwhelm even the largest management side firms, and no employment firm has our courtroom and trial experience. As one former client stated: “We are bulldogs who are not intimidated by anyone.”

It is also unlawful to retaliate against someone for if he or she complains about sexual harassment, and Wigdor LLP obtained a multi-million dollar verdict at trial on behalf of former Editor-in-Chief of the Source Magazine in such a case. After a two-week trial, a jury in Manhattan Federal Court returned a multi-million dollar verdict on behalf of Kim Osorio. The jury found that Ms. Osorio was retaliated against when she filed a complaint of discrimination and was defamed when the co-owner of the Source, Raymond Scott (aka “Benzino”), claimed that she attempted to extort the Source. Individual defendant and co-owner David Mays was also found liable.
