According to CNBC, Andy Friedman is “one of the nation’s most sought-after speakers on all things political.”  An expert on political affairs, Andy explains the ever changing, sometimes confusing, and often crazy world of Washington in a straightforward bipartisan manner.  He is known for predicting the outcomes of Washington deliberations and providing financial advisors and investors with strategies to consider in light of the changing political landscape.

Andy was a senior partner with the law firm of Covington & Burling in Washington, D.C., where he practiced for almost thirty years, serving as head of the tax and corporate groups.  He received his bachelor degree as valedictorian from Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut, and his law degree from the Harvard Law School.

Andy also served as tax counsel to Major League Baseball, the National Football League, the National Basketball Association, and the National Hockey League.

Andy appears on CNBC, which refers to him as “Wall Street’s Tax Expert” and calls him “one of Washington’s savviest political observers.”  Andy also has appeared on the Larry Kudlow Show, the Fox Business Channel, and POTUS radio, has been profiled in the Washington Post and Research Magazine, and is quoted extensively in publications ranging from the Wall Street Journal to USA Today.

Andy is included in Best Lawyers in America and Chambers’ America’s Leading Lawyers for Business, which notes that “Andy’s ability to combine vast knowledge and a practical mindset permits him to convey the most complex of tax concepts in layman’s terms.  He is the expert’s expert.  If every lawyer were like him, the world would be a much better place.”
