About Greg Gutzler.  Mr. Gutzler is a litigator specializing in several forms of complex litigation. He has been on the front lines in protecting women and men from sexual abuse, discrimination, and exploitation. He is lead counsel in a civil suit involving the world’s largest-ever sex trafficking case, which spans six countries and fifty years of abuse. On December 10, 2021, Dateline NBC featured Greg in its revered news magazine program in an episode titled, “The Secrets of Nygard Cay.”  Greg’s grasp of the nuances of common law—the influence of jurisdictions, who’s on the bench, and more—converge in a simple insight: The system never dispenses justice based on predicable formulas, so legal professionals must fight to achieve justice. He views DiCello Levitt as the right firm to advance that fight for its clients, drawing on a shared vision of commitment, creativity, and loyalty. []
