Jonathan D. Frieden

Jonathan D. Frieden: Attorney with Odin, Feldman & Pittleman, P.C.

Biography

A degree in systems engineering and a background in computer coding have helped inform Jon Frieden’s approach to successfully handling a broad range of matters for his technology clients. As a self-described “early adopter,” Jon was one of the first attorneys in Northern Virginia to focus on Internet law and e-commerce.


With a practice centered on complex Internet- and technology-related commercial disputes and transactions, Jon brings a two-pronged approach to helping clients achieve success. Jon’s litigation experience helps structure deals for his clients that avoid potential disputes, while his transactional skills support litigation strategies that help protect their business interests.


Jon’s diverse practice encompasses Internet litigation (including domain name and cybersquatting disputes and Internet defamation claims), intellectual property litigation (including trademark and copyright enforcement proceedings), commercial contract disputes, labor and employment disputes, and the defense of corporations against consumer claims. He counsels e-commerce businesses in a variety of industries and leads the firm’s team of professionals representing Google, Inc., which identified Odin, Feldman & Pittleman as a Go-To Law Firm® for Intellectual Property.


A thought leader on e-commerce issues, Jon is the author of E-Commerce Law, a regularly updated discussion of news, trends and legal issues affecting e-commerce businesses, as well as one of the former hosts of the Power of Attorney Radio podcast. His arguments and commentary have been quoted extensively in The Washington Post, The Washington Times and other media.


Jon has received an AV rating, the highest rating given by Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Ratings™ for his legal ability and general ethical standards. He has been named among Virginia’s “Legal Elite” by Virginia Business magazine in 2005, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2014, and 2016 and was selected for inclusion as a Virginia Super Lawyers Rising Star in 2007, 2008, 2010 and 2011. Jon is highly involved with the Zeta Beta Tau fraternity, serving on its national Board of Directors, and teaches legal writing at George Mason University Law School.
