Spector Gadon & Rosen, P.C. Chairman Paul R. Rosen has announced that Executive Committee Member George M. Vinci, Jr. has joined him as Equity Shareholder and Director of the firm. Celebrating its 45th anniversary this year, the firm has also unveiled a new name – Spector Gadon Rosen Vinci P.C. – as well as a bold, new brand (logo above) to advance its strong reputation for tenaciously pursuing successful claims and defenses on behalf of its clients.
“We’re not your typical law firm,” Rosen said. “We’ve earned a stellar reputation for taking on difficult, complex cases and have a track record of coming out with win after win on those cases. George has been with our firm for 27 years and leads our largest divisions of the firm – Insurance Coverage & Casualty Litigation, and Professional Liability & Malpractice Litigation. He’s a superb litigator who secures landmark verdicts with a natural ability in court that is astounding. I felt it was important to show our future in the firm name. And that future is with George.”
“This law firm is like my second family,” Vinci said. “We are a highly respected team of dogged and diligent attorneys. We maintain a high-quality practice that was built under the leadership of legal icons including Paul Rosen, a true national trailblazer of our profession. I look forward to proudly working alongside him to continue to take a winning firm to even greater heights of success.”
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.
Six months after joining the firm in 1992 as a 28-year-old associate, Vinci joined Rosen in the limelight for their work on a groundbreaking election fraud case which they won, removing William G. Stinson from the Senate without a re-election in the precedent-setting case of Marks v. Stinson in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. Coverage of the case aired on Court TV.
Vinci’s litigation experience involves cases throughout the United States. He has successfully handled a wide variety of complex professional malpractice and business litigation matters on behalf of a wide variety of clients.
Vinci earned his J.D. from Temple University School of Law, cum laude, in 1988, and a B.A. from St. Joseph’s University in 1985. He and his family reside in center city Philadelphia.
In Vinci’s early days at the firm, founder Steven Gadon predicted, “One day, this will be your firm.” Now, with Vinci joining Rosen in an ownership position, the prophecy of the late Gadon has proved true.
In December, Spector Gadon Rosen Vinci P.C. announced a new presence in Atlanta, Ga., in addition to its offices in Philadelphia, Pa., Marlton, N.J., St. Petersburg, Fla. and New York, N.Y.
