Fredric Chaiken


Fredric Chaiken's legal career has focused primarily on civil litigation. Since 1981, Mr. Chaiken has represented individual and corporate clients in a wide array of civil trial and appellate work in the State and Federal Courts in Georgia and elsewhere. Beginning in the early 1990s, Mr. Chaiken began to focus a significant amount of his active trial practice in the areas of business torts, ranging from trademark, trade dress and patent infringement, to trade secret violations, enforcement of restrictive covenants, corporate fraud, corporate governance and breach of fiduciary duties. Mr. Chaiken handles trust, estate and probate litigation, as well. He is outside general counsel for several corporations (profit and not-for-profit) and regularly serves as "local counsel" in Federal courts in Georgia for out of state corporations.

In addition to his business litigation practice, Mr. Chaiken will occasionally take on personal injury and wrongful death cases. In 2011, he was part of the trial team that won a $2,600,000.00 verdict in a wrongful death case, listed in TOP GEORGIA VERDICTS as the second largest wrongful death verdict in the State of Georgia in 2011.

Mr. Chaiken prides himself on his ability to assist in resolving legal disputes amicably through informal means or formal alternative dispute resolution proceedings and litigating effectively, efficiently and economically when necessary. He has served as an instructor in the National Institute of Trial Advocacy (NITA) program at Emory University School of Law since 1996.
