Fast Facts

Goldberg Segalla is not what you might expect from a dynamic, internationally acclaimed law firm. We’re not Big Law — nor do we want to be. We’re different. Browse our fast facts to get the scoop on Team GS.


Goldberg Segalla was founded on April 20, 2001.



We designed our partnership with the most basic, human definition of that word in mind: People, not power plays. Collaboration, not competition. Diversity, not division.


Our Values

We have won workplace culture awards in seven states and in major markets where we have offices.

We have earned regional and national recognition for the innovative programs we have developed.

We have contributed to over 100 charities and nonprofits across our footprint


In 20 years, Team GS has grown to over 400 lawyers strong. We serve clients from more than 20 offices across 10 states.



We have never compromised on our founding principles. We have never accepted or even entertained the idea of a merger, and we have never grown for the sake of growth. We have always put our clients and our team first, above any individual goals.
