On October 3, 2019, Wigdor LLP Founding Partner Douglas H. Wigdor appeared in a feature profile in Super Lawyers Magazine’s New York Metro 2019 issue. Known for his successful representation of numerous high-profile victims of employment discrimination, sexual harassment and sexual assault, Mr. Wigdor was only one of three plaintiffs’ employment lawyers to be ranked among the Top 100 lawyers in the New York Metro area by Super Lawyers in 2019.
“’When I first started my career in the Suffolk County District Attorneys Office as a prosecutor, I loved that job because I was helping victims and people who had no place else to turn,’ [Mr. Wigdor] says. ‘From there, I went to a private employment firm. It didn’t sit well with me. I felt I could do a lot more being on the other side of things—more like I was in the D.A.’s office—so I started my firm back in 2003 with an eye toward helping people who have been victimized in some way: victimized by their employer, discriminated against or harassed, or sexually assaulted, knowing that the person who I would be representing, in most cases, would be up against a big company with large and unlimited resources. There was a space for someone with my trial abilities to vindicate their rights and make them whole.’”
The profile, titled “Vindicating Victims,” highlights Mr. Wigdor’s role representing plaintiffs in high-profile cases against Harvey Weinstein, Fox News, Uber, Dominique Strauss-Kahn and Charter Communications.
