Bryce L. Friedman

Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP

New York, NY, USA

Bryce L. Friedman is a Partner in the Firm’s Litigation Department. He concentrates on representing clients in complex commercial disputes and in responding to allegations of fraud. 

Bryce has particular experience in the insurance and reinsurance business. He has represented insurers in a variety of commercial, coverage, reinsurance and trade practice disputes. He has litigated and arbitrated such disputes to conclusion in state and federal courts and arbitral forums across the United States.

Bryce also regularly represents clients in responding to whistleblowers’ allegations of fraud, including False Claims Act violations. He assists clients with investigations of such allegations and litigates False Claims Act (FCA) claims when necessary.

Bryce’s clients regularly call on him to assist in managing crises and unusual events pre-litigation. Such engagements often involve personnel issues, potential data breaches and theft of information,  financial reporting, regulatory inquiries and unexpected product or business failures in the business and professional services, consumer products, financial services and transportation industries.

He is recognized by Chambers as a notable practitioner, and described by market commentators as having a “flourishing practice representing insurers in coverage disputes as well as in high profile cases revolving around alleged False Claim Act violations. He receives high praise for his "top-notch strategic thinking.’” He is also recognized as a national “Litigation Star” for insurance by Euromoney’s Benchmark Litigation and was named a “Rising Star” by Law360.

Bryce received his B.A., cum laude, from Dartmouth College in 1994. He graduated from Columbia University School of Law in 1997, where he was a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar. Prior to joining the Firm, he served as a law clerk for the late United States District Judge Shirley Wohl Kram in the Southern District of New York.

Bryce is co-chair of the Firm’s Legal Personnel Committee. In addition, he is involved in substantial pro bono work including supervising Simpson Thacher’s ongoing legal clinic at the Bushwick Campus Schools in Brooklyn.  Bryce serves on the Boards of Volunteers of Legal Services, Inc. and Playwrights Horizons, a not-for-profit theater company.  He was also a New York State–certified emergency medical technician and a volunteer EMS provider in New York City for over 20 years.
