He represents all sorts of companies and other organizations, including huge multinational corporations and tiny little mom-and-pop organizations and pretty much everything in between those.

Over the years, Warren Friss has played a key role in negotiating many contracts and he has dealt with many complex transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, private placements, joint ventures and strategic alliances, and other matters. He is also highly skilled and experienced with issues like debt financing and employment law. That said, one thing that makes Warren Friss unique could be his primary legal specialty, which is sports-related law.

That relatively unusual specialty likely stems from the time Warren Friss served as general counsel for The Topps Company, which is known worldwide as one of the most prominent sports cards and memorabilia companies anywhere. There, he played an integral role in most of Topps’ contract negotiations and its financial transactions and intellectual property matters. At one point, he also became an executive at the company, serving as head of their Internet and Sports & Entertainment Division, where he was responsible for all business functions, not just the legal matters.
