BOSTON--The Gordon Law Group, a leading Massachusetts employment law firm which specializes in representing employees in wage, termination and compensation litigation, announces that managing partner, Philip Gordon, has been named to the Boston Business Journal’s prestigious “40 Under 40” list. In its ninth year, the Journal’s program recognizes emerging business leaders in Greater Boston that help drive the regional economy.
Gordon’s practice focuses on the employee, with particular attention to those matters related to overtime, minimum wage, commission, wrongful termination, employee misclassification, severance agreements, non-compete agreements, wrongful deductions, record keeping and equity compensation.
He was nominated to the 40 under 40 list by Gordon Law Group, LLP clients and community leaders, who described him as a “strategic, big-picture thinker.” “Philip designs effective strategies to make use of the law and achieve extraordinary results,” they continued. “He’s also proactive and trustworthy. Not one to languish on an idea, Philip stays on top of our issues, sometimes even pushing us.”
His work has been noted also within the legal community, including coverage in Boston Magazine, where he was named one of Massachusetts’ Top 100 Lawyers in the 2005 list of “Massachusetts Super Lawyers.”
He is also extensively involved in pro bono work, supporting education and medicine. He is one of the Senior Partners for Justice of the Wage and Hour Project of the Volunteer Lawyers Project, and he serves as Vice Chairman of the Public Policy Committee of the Jewish Community Relations Council, a member of the Board of Directors of the Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition, and a member of the Board of Governors of the Combined Jewish Philanthropies.
