Spector Gadon Rosen Vinci P.C. Shareholder and Director George M. Vinci, Jr. has been selected by the Philadelphia Business Journal as 2019 Best of the Bar: Philadelphia’s Top Lawyers. The award honors the Philadelphia region’s top attorneys who have distinguished themselves in their specialties including significant and recent victories. Hundreds of nominations were received and evaluated by the Philadelphia Business Journal Editorial Board and three independent judges.
In December 2018, Vinci secured a $100 million ($100,000,000) award against international accounting firm Grant Thornton LLP for its marketing of an abusive tax shelter. He successfully argued the case, which had 40 witnesses and more than 600 exhibits, from the trial court level to the Kentucky Supreme Court. As one of the highest verdicts ever obtained in that state, the precedent-setting ruling, which included an $80,000,000 punitive award, sent an important message.
The Business Journal will honor the Best of the Bar winners on Thursday, Oct. 29, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Crystal Tea Room in Philadelphia.
