In 2013, the Latin Business Chronicle named him one of the top 25 Legal Rising Stars in Latin America, a list that identifies the lawyers who are "quickly making a name for themselves in legal issues concerning Latin America." Latin Lawyer recognized Mr. Fridman in 2014 for his work "doing corporate investigations in the region", noting that he is "experienced in white collar defence."

In the US, Mr. Fridman has represented clients in criminal and civil enforcement cases involving: financial fraud; accounting fraud; tax fraud; medicare and medicaid fraud; commercial bribery; anti-money-laundering compliance; the False Claims Act; and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). His work spans a broad spectrum of business sectors, but has a particular emphasis on health care, insurance, and banking.

Before joining White & Case, Mr. Fridman served as senior counsel to the Deputy Attorney General of the United States. As special counsel for health care fraud at the US Department of Justice (DOJ) in Washington, DC, he advised the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General on national health care fraud enforcement policy, and he testified before Congressional committees on US law enforcement issues.

Mr. Fridman also served as an Assistant US Attorney in the Southern District of Florida, where he prosecuted health care fraud, financial crimes, official corruption, aviation offenses, narcotics offenses, firearms offenses, and violent crimes. After graduating from Harvard Law School, he served as a Law Clerk to the Honorable Alan S. Gold, US District Court for the Southern District of Florida.

Mr. Fridman was appointed by the Governor of Florida to a four-year term on the Eleventh Circuit Judicial Nominating Commission, which interviews and recommends candidates to the Governor for appointment as circuit and county court judges. He currently serves as the Commission's chairman.
