The office of Norwalk Mayor Harry Rilling announced Wednesday, Sept. 9 that it will honor Goldman, Gruder & Woods LLC with an official proclamation to help mark the law firm’s 20th anniversary of practicing.

The Norwalk-based firm, which has a Trumbull office, is celebrating its 20 years in business with a “splashy” event at The Maritime Aquarium on Thursday, Sept. 10, 2015.

“I am delighted to present the folks at Norwalk’s largest law firm, Goldman, Gruder & Woods, with an official proclamation in honor of the firm’s 20th anniversary,” said Mayor Rilling. “We appreciate all their contributions to the City and hold their practice in the highest esteem. We look forward to another 20 years of growth, both at the law firm and of our City.”

Goldman, Gruder & Woods LLC will celebrate a successful two decades in business, its recent expansion from one office to three, and the hire of additional attorneys with a cocktail party for clients and associates today at the Norwalk aquarium.

“We are a business that came to Norwalk with a total of five full time employees in 1995 and in the 20 years we’ve been here, we’ve grown into the largest law firm in the city, with more than 30 employees here,” said Atty. Ken Gruder. “We now have additional offices in both Trumbull and Greenwich and our ability to serve clients in Fairfield County – as well as throughout the state and beyond – continues to grow.”

Attorneys at the law firm focus on real property litigation, business and corporate law, injury, health care, estate planning and probate, and landlord/tenant matters. The firm has been involved in some of the major development projects in Norwalk.

Besides having a hand in major developments of the area, Goldman, Gruder & Woods has been a regular and generous supporter of several Norwalk-based charities and organizations, including the Carver Foundation, the Mid-Fairfield Aids Project, and the Arts Commission.

“We are no longer ‘practicing,’” added Atty. Michael Goldman. “At this point, we’ve got it right.”
