Super Lawyers is a highly competitive rating service of outstanding attorneys from over 70 practice areas. Those who are selected to the Super Lawyers Top 100 list have achieved the highest level of peer recognition and professional achievement across all practice areas, based on Super Lawyers’ independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations.
On his inclusion in the Top 100 list, Mr. Wigdor said:
“It is humbling to be recognized by Super Lawyers as one of the leading attorneys in New York. As is the case with all of our Firm’s lawyers, I am driven first and foremost by our clients and their desire to effectuate lasting change. Whether that includes holding abusive executives and the companies that employ them accountable for unlawful conduct, pressuring a company to acknowledge wrongdoing and change its policies, or promoting cultural change and advancing legislation that ensures the protection of employees’ rights, I am immensely proud of all the work that our Firm continues to do on behalf of victims every day.”
Mr. Wigdor has risen to prominence as one of New York’s most successful employment litigators, representing victims in some of the most high-profile employment discrimination, sexual harassment and #MeToo cases worldwide. He was recently named one of 10 “Titans of the Plaintiffs’ Bar” by Law360, and is one of few New York plaintiff-side employment lawyers to receive a ranking from Chambers and Partners, one of the most prestigious legal directories in the world.
Among his high-profile cases, Mr. Wigdor currently represents multiple victims of alleged sexual abuse by disgraced film mogul Harvey Weinstein, seven female TV journalists at NY1 in their claims of age, gender and/or pregnancy discrimination against Charter Communications, finance executive Lauren Bonner in connection with her claims of gender discrimination and unequal pay against global hedge fund Point72 Asset Management, NBA All-Star Charles Oakley in his defamation case against Knicks owner James Dolan and Madison Square Garden (“MSG”), and many others.
