About Friedman Kaplan Seiler & Adelman LLP

Since its founding by seven attorneys in 1986, Friedman Kaplan has grown to be one of the preeminanet boutiques in the Big Apple. Nearly 50 attorneys in New York and New Jersey practice in corporate, white collar, and--the firm's specialty--litigation, on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants. The firm's representations are varied. Friedman Kaplan attorneys represented Wells Fargo and Wachovia in a mulitbillion dollar dispute with Citigroup over the acquisition of Wachovia by Wells during the financial crisis. The firm won a $1.3 billion dollar settlement on behalf of two hedge funds pursuing claims against the Republic of Argentina to recover on defaulted bonds. And Chuck Blazer, the founder of organized American soccer, called on Friedman Kaplan for repesentation in investigations into bribery related to the 1998 and 2010 World Cup bids.
