Goldberg Segalla Celebrates Labor Day: Team Efforts, Team Values

September 3, 2019

With “Best Place to Work” rankings in seven states and nationwide, law firm’s video series puts the focus back on the people behind the numbers


The law firm Goldberg Segalla is known for its historic growth as well as the mold-breaking culture that it is has extended from coast to coast—a culture now recognized by the firm’s placement in a dozen national, regional, and industry-wide rankings of the best places to work.

This Labor Day, GS is turning a spotlight on all of the people behind these awards—more than 1000 individuals in over 20 offices nationwide. With its “Team Efforts, Team Values” video series, the firm elevates and recognizes the many ways in which employees from across the GS footprint live their shared values every day. The videos document employees’ community involvement and volunteering, health and wellness activities, and commitment to each other.

“From the beginning, we have been driven by the belief that a superior experience for clients could only come from a superior law firm culture,” said Richard J. Cohen, founder and managing partner of the firm. “Simply put, a happy and collaborative team will outperform any group of individuals, no matter their credentials.”

“We were a team at the beginning, and we are a team today,” Cohen added. “This Labor Day, we’re reflecting on that fact: We did this together.”
