Gordon Legal was founded in Melbourne in 2009 by Peter Gordon. With decades of experience at the forefront of plaintiff law and worker’s compensation in Australia, Peter has an unrivalled record of fighting for justice for working people.
He pioneered the ‘no win, no fee’ system with Paul Henderson, and made history winning landmark cases. Today, Peter continues his legacy at Gordon Legal, battling for everyday people alongside a team of exceptional lawyers.
Peter Gordon’s landmark cases
We won’t put business first and people second, treat clients as numbers or use flash-in-the-pan lawyering.
We won’t hire the heartless, pander to the wealthy, or replace conversations with billable units.
We won’t ignore people’s pain, pretend to be worthy, or hide behind a hired famous face.
And we won’t judge our clients, chase shiny corporates, or forget the value that made us want to be lawyers in the first place.
That’s just not what we’re all about.
We will use the law for good, listen until we understand, and fight for those who can’t fight for themselves.
We will talk with our clients, put value before profit, and continue to care after the case is closed.
We will work with empathy, partner with unions and community groups, and use all our resources for all the right reasons.
We will hire for character, prevail where others fail, and always walk a mile in our clients’ shoes.
Because at Gordon Legal, it’s personal.
