Ian R. Friedman
Ian’s practice focuses on professional liability defense, business litigation, and personal injury law.  Ian regularly defends attorneys, real estate brokers, and investment advisers against claims of malpractice, breach of fiduciary duty, negligence and fraud.  Ian also represents entity and individual clients in multi-million-dollar disputes involving the ownership and operation of corporations, limited liability companies and partnerships. Ian’s other specific areas of experience include cases involving school bond issues, products liability, wrongful deaths, federal and state housing claims, real estate issues, employment claims and judgment collection.

Ian has served as co-trial counsel in bench trials and arbitrations, has successfully argued multiple cases before California Courts of Appeal and has also argued before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.  He has also obtained dozens of early resolutions for his clients through California’s Anti-SLAPP statute, summary judgment, demurrer, and motions to dismiss.  Ian also protects his clients’ right to litigate in their chosen venue by succeeding on motions to compel arbitration, motions to quash service and motions to transfer venue.
