Press Release

Aharon J. Friedman Joins Federal Policy Group

Issued by Federal Policy Group

May 27, 2021

WASHINGTON, DC -- Kenneth J. Kies, the Managing Director of the Federal Policy Group, is pleased to announce the addition of Aharon J. Friedman, an experienced attorney and trusted adviser with extensive policy background.

Ken said: “A veteran tax and pension hand in the Executive and Legislative Branches, Aharon has had a distinguished career in government service, most recently as Senior Adviser to the Assistant Secretary for Tax Policy, Dave Kautter, in the Department of the Treasury.  Previously, Aharon was Senior Tax Counsel at the Committee on Ways & Means, where he served four Chairmen and Ranking Members, beginning with Rep. Jim McCrery.  Aharon played a key role in the enactment of numerous pieces of legislation since 2007, including the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 under Chairman Kevin Brady.  During his more than twelve years at the Committee, Aharon served as lead staffer on a wide variety of issues.  Aharon helped design TCJA’s revamp of America’s international tax rules starting with Chairman Dave Camp’s 2011 Discussion Draft and Tax Reform Act of 2014, and Chairman Paul Ryan’s 2015 revisions.  Aharon has also been a leader on pension and retirement policy, covering both the Tax Code and ERISA, across the jurisdictions of Treasury, the Department of Labor and the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation.”

Aharon said: “The Federal Policy Group is known for achieving results through its extensive technical prowess, dedication to clients, and legislative and regulatory experience. I am very excited to be joining the firm to help clients navigate complex tax and pension legislative and regulatory issues in an ever-evolving political environment.”

Ken said: “Aharon, who will serve as a Director and Senior Tax Counsel, will be a tremendous asset to serve the Federal Policy Group’s clients.”

A native of Brooklyn, Aharon earned a B.A. in Economics from Brooklyn College, CUNY, a J.D. from Harvard Law School, an M.P.A. from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, and an LL.M. from New York University where he was a Graduate Editor of the Tax Law Review.  Prior to Congress, Friedman was an associate at Shearman & Sterling in New York and Covington & Burling in Washington.  Following law school, he clerked for Justice Tova Strasberg-Cohen on Israel’s Supreme Court in Jerusalem.
