Attorney Benjamin T. Friesen has recently joined Kuckelman Torline Kirkland & Lewis. Previously at Husch Blackwell’s Kansas City office from 2013-2016, Friesen focused on medical malpractice, breach of contract, tort, construction disputes, and insurance coverage claims. Prior to his time with Husch, Friesen worked for the US Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Missouri, serving in the Fraud and Corruption Unit where he prosecuted mortgage and securities fraud.
Friesen received his J.D., summa cum laude, from the University of Missouri-Kansas City (2014). He received his B.S. in History from Truman State University (2010).
