Avram E. Frisch
Avi Frisch was born and reared in Teaneck, New Jersey. His mother is a high school history teacher; his father was also a high school English teacher before he retired.
Avi is passionate about reading, baseball, architecture, public policy and technology.
He received a Bachelor of Arts in History, summa cum laude, from Yeshiva University in 2002. While there, he studied Jewish law, ethics, and philosophy. He is proficient in Hebrew.
He received his Juris Doctor from Columbia University School of Law in 2006. He was a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar, as well as an active participant in academic and extracurricular activities.
Avi began his legal career as an associate at Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP. While he excelled in Fried Frank’s litigation department, he eventually decided to focus his efforts on real estate transactions.
While at Fried Frank, he was involved in numerous high-profile transactions, usually exceeding $500 million. He assisted clients nationwide in loan workouts, sale and purchase of commercial properties, lease conversions, and financing, securitization, and restructuring. As a secondary focus, he represented clients in immigration matters, particularly asylum cases.
Although Avi enjoyed the challenge of his workload at Fried Frank, he wanted to direct his attentions and efforts towards helping individual clients and smaller businesses. He founded The Law Office of Avram E. Frisch to focus on the practice areas of real estate, business, and commercial litigation.
Avi also interned for Justice Sonia Sotomayor while she was a member of the Second Circuit Court of Appeals. Avi worked closely with Justice Sotomayor and her clerks on immigration cases, analyzing immigration-related asylum petitions and cases involving criminal sentencing guidelines.
