Jon is a founding partner of Rudolph Friedmann LLP and the head of our litigation practice. In that role, he has litigated countless matters before all levels of the Courts of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the United States Federal District Court, the United States Court of Claims, the United States Bankruptcy Court, the United States Bankruptcy Appellate Panel and courts throughout New England.

When not in the courtroom, Jon works with our executive clients to translate his litigation experience into sound business planning and transaction structuring, alleviating the need for litigation when possible and putting our clients in the best position possible if that litigation becomes necessary.

Jon also puts his thirty years of experience to use in his new role as a Hearing Officer with the Massachusetts Board of Bar Overseers. The BBO, working with the Office of the Bar Counsel, is an independent administrative body responsible for regulating the legal profession and investigating and evaluating complaints against lawyers. His first appointment, this position with the BBO supplements his other volunteer work in the Greater Boston community through organizations such as the Top Banana Education Foundation, Milton Friends of Town Farm, and both the Massachusetts and Boston Bar Associations.
