Fred Friedman's practice focuses on complex civil litigation and criminal and regulatory investigations. He has prosecuted and defended civil claims involving intellectual property, copyright and trademark, securities fraud, unfair business practices, and other business torts. In the criminal and regulatory field, Fred has undertaken the defense of a wide range of cases, including alleged trade secret theft, environmental violations, campaign finance violations, illegal arms exports, customs violations, political corruption, money laundering, and the full spectrum of fraud cases. He has defended numerous criminal tax cases and has consulted on internet gambling issues. Fred has given compliance advice to businesses on cyber security and data collection issues.
Fred also has represented Chinese businesses that are alleged to have obtained trade secrets or other confidential information in violation of United States laws.
Fred's civil representations include his representation of a distributor of dietary supplements sued by customers in a putative class action. The trial court's order in that case, denying plaintiffs' motion to certify a class of all purchasers of the product, was upheld on appeal. He also was part of a team that represented a large foreign corporation accused of violating United States tax laws by not paying payroll taxes on millions of dollars of employee compensation. That case ended successfully when a small subsidiary of the client pled guilty to a single count not involving fraud, with a promise by the prosecutor not to charge any of the company's executives or employees.
