Following is an excerpt:

Epstein Becker Green PC added a former Proskauer Rose LLP senior counsel with experience representing financial service companies in court and in arbitration as a partner in its New York office.

Brian L. Friedman joined the litigation and business disputes practice at Epstein Becker on Monday. He has focused his career on the representation of clients in the financial services industry in disputes ranging from state and federal court proceedings to domestic and international arbitrations, the firm said.

Friedman said he was drawn to Epstein Becker because of its reputation and its work in the financial services industry.

“During the [hiring] process, the people I met confirmed my understanding of the firm’s culture, its values and collegial nature,” he told Law360 on Tuesday. “It really had what I was looking for in the next stage of my career.”

Friedman will continue to focus primarily on commercial litigation and arbitration disputes involving financial services companies such as major brokerage firms and futures commission merchants. He has also advised clients facing investigations and enforcement proceedings from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and the National Futures Association and will continue that work as well.
