SPOTLIGHT: Marc Friedman, Esq. Joins GCE as Director of Professional Relations

It's rare when someone can truly be called a pioneer. Marc Friedman has that distinction.

Marc obtained his law degree (J.D) from George Washington University, where he also served as Editor of the Law Review. He became a pioneer early in his career when he won the first-ever information technology (IT) case in the country, helping to open a whole new field of computer law.

Marc went on to found his own internationally acclaimed technology law firm. For the last 10 years, and until his retirement in 2018, Marc was a senior partner at Dentons, one of the world's top global law firms. Again, he concentrated in technology law, helping foreign companies successfully establish themselves in the US.

Life has a funny way of bringing people together however, to make positive things happen. When Marc left law, he decided to transition to coaching, for executives and entrepreneurs from abroad. When he realized how his work mirrored Global Commerce Education, and that one of the founders was a college friend of his, Gene Detroyer, he reached out and offered to collaborate.
