How we can help you
Our Senior Partner, Peter Gordon, is one of Australia’s most prominent class actions lawyers. He is a passionate advocate for using the law to help everyday people when they have been wronged by big corporations with nearly unlimited resources to defend claims.
During his career he has taken on big tobacco, achieved landmark wins for people exposed to asbestos, fought for victims of sexual abuse by members of the Catholic Church, for sufferers of medically-acquired HIV as well and for women over faulty breast implants.
It is this sense of justice for everyday people that led Peter to start Gordon Legal in 2010, so he could seek compensation for thalidomide survivors who had been denied claims over the years.
Peter was able to secure a significant settlement for these families, finally getting them justice and in doing so, financial security for many of these families. That win represents what Gordon Legal’s class actions are about; fighting for people that have been wronged by the system. This is what drives Peter and all of our other lawyers at Gordon Legal.
