Peter Friedman is both an experienced counselor and a seasoned commercial litigator (U.S. federal courts, and ADR globally), primarily in commercial and copyright matters.

A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Mr. Friedman graduated magna cum laude from Brown University in 1981 (with a double concentration in both Ancient Greek and Latin), and from the University of Michigan Law School in 1984.

Between 1984 and 1996, he worked as a litigator in New York City, first as a shareholder at Anderson Kill & Olick, P.C. and later as a partner at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP.

He has represented clients in the areas of securities, banking, environmental law, transportation, trademark, and legislative affairs. While his litigation work focuses on federal courts, he has significant experience in private mediations and arbitrations, both in the U.S. and abroad.

Since 1996, Mr. Friedman has been a member of the faculty at Case Western Reserve University School of Law, where he has taught courses in legal practice, legal analysis and writing, civil procedure, and contracts. He has also taught international students and lawyers enrolled in Case Western's LL.M program in International Legal Studies, the University of Amsterdam's Masters of Law Program in European Private Law, and the University of Windsor in Canada.

His expertise in copyright law came to increased public attention with the launching of his blog "What is Fair Use?" in 2008. In Ruling Imagination: Law and Creativity, he continues to cover intellectual property issues as well as a wide range of subjects of interest to the global business community.

He lives in his hometown of Shaker Heights, Ohio.
