Friedman & Wittenstein

About Us

Friedman & Wittenstein was founded over 30 years ago by Stuart I. Friedman and Andrew A. Wittenstein. The firm is dedicated to the traditional values of the legal profession: high quality and consistency. We represent large corporations, as well as individuals and small business enterprises. While we specialize in complex commercial litigation, we also provide services to our clients on an array of legal matters, including contracts, intellectual property issues, employment agreements, and corporate transactions. 


Although the firm has grown from the days in which it consisted only of its two founding partners, it has remained small by design as a way of maintaining its extremely high standards. The firm has never acquired or merged with any other firm or practice group of lawyers. All of our partners were associated with the firm before they became partners, and the great majority of the firm's associates joined the firm directly after their graduation from law school or soon thereafter. Each of our lawyers, while differing in level of experience, is equally talented and devoted to the highest standards of the profession.


The firm has achieved a remarkable record of long-term relationships with its clients. Indeed, we have represented many of our clients in dozens of different matters during relationships that have continued uninterrupted for decades. Several of our lawyer-client relationships even pre-date the founding of the firm, and many others have endured well over 20 years. In this respect, our clients have enjoyed consistent relationships with the same lawyers in case after case. Many of our clients began working with some of the firm's current partners when those lawyers were first-year associates at the firm.


Our approach to all matters is best described as "no stone left unturned." We take great pride in the depth of analysis that we employ on every matter we handle, and our clients appreciate the individualized attention that is a hallmark of our firm.
