Shulman Rogers adds experienced government investigations and white collar attorney Andrew M. Friedman
Andrew M. Friedman has joined Shulman Rogers to further enhance the firm's White Collar, Securities Enforcement and Government Investigations practice group. Mr. Friedman brings more than 20 years of experience helping clients who are targets of investigations by the DOJ, the SEC, other Federal agencies and the United States Congress. He has delivered positive outcomes for individuals, for small and mid-sized companies, and for some of the largest corporations in the country.
"Clients praise Andrew for his knowledge and his ability to achieve the best outcomes in settlement negotiations and the pre-trial stage, to obtain acquittals in criminal prosecutions and deliver successful outcomes in civil cases that go to trial," said Russell Duncan, Chair of the White Collar, Securities Enforcement and Government Investigations practice at Shulman Rogers. "They are equally impressed with the proactive guidance Andrew gives them in order to avoid costly investigations."
Mr. Friedman has extensive experience defending investigations in the areas of securities, foreign corrupt practices, banking law, hedge funds, export controls and contractor corruption. He also counsels clients regarding matters that arise in the context of compliance programs, business relationships, trade association practices and pre-merger due diligence. "My government investigations clients face potentially profound professional and personal risk. I understand the gravity of their situations and make myself available to them 24/7," said Mr. Friedman. "My colleagues at Shulman Rogers have the same client-service focus and commitment. The firm is the perfect platform for my practice."
Mr. Friedman received his J.D. from the University of Minnesota Law School and his A.B. from Brown University. He is a member of the Washington, DC and Virginia bars.
