Adam Friedlander (born William Adam Friedlander December 26, 1961) is an American author and workers’ compensation insurance professional. He has authored 2 books on workplace safety and productivity, serves as President of Friedlander Group, and has several published articles on group self-insured workers’ compensation trusts.

Early Life and Education[edit]

Adam Friedlander was born William Adam Friedlander in White Plains, New York. Friedlander is a third generation insurance professional. He received a bachelor’s degree in Economics, History, and English from the University of Denver in 1983. He began his career in insurance sales and financial planning prior to founding Friedlander Group in 1985.


In 2006, Friedlander was published by the Insurance Journal where he predicted the insolvency of self-insured workers’ compensation trusts in New York. In the publication, he warned that members of these trusts are responsible for any shortfalls due to the joint and several liability provision required by the trusts. He likened agreeing to this risk to signing blank checks to pay for unfunded liability and expenses. Friedlander warned that the profitable self-insured trusts could be responsible for paying the underfunded participating competitors.[1]

In 2008, Friedlander was published by WorkCompCentral in an article entitled Self-Insured Trusts: Paying Your Competitor’s Cost. This publication was a follow up to the New York Workers’ Compensation Board assessing all group self-insured trusts $30 million to pay for 14 terminated trusts. Friedlander proved his prior theory true by stating, “paying for the workers’ compensation liabilities of competitors is the stark reality for thousands of members of group self-insured trusts in New York.”[2]

In 2011, Friedlander’s first book How to Save Big on Workers’ Compensation: With Insights From Leading Industry Experts was published. In his first book, Friedlander stresses the importance of companies investing in keeping their workers safe, establishing a workplace committee, and controlling their experience modification.[3]

In 2016, Friedlander’s second book Safety and Workers' Compensation Strategies: To Unleash Productivity and Profits was published. In his second book, Friedlander explores how business leaders leverage safety and workers’ compensation strategies to generate phenomenal results. He interviews experts including Paul H. O'Neill, the 72nd Secretary of the U.S. Treasury and former chairman of Alcoa.[4] The Insurance Advocate refers to Friedlander as a forward-looking entrepreneur and praises the book for a high level of communication to clients.[5]

Friedlander Group[edit]

Friedlander founded the New York insurance agency Friedlander Group in 1985. Friedlander Group is an insurance agency specializing in workplace safety to help businesses save money on workers’ compensation.[6] Since 1992, Friedlander Group has managed 7 workers’ compensation safety groups underwritten by the New York State Insurance Fund. Safety Group insurance consists of qualified employers within the same industry pooling their premiums to limit injuries and reduce costs through advance discounts and group dividends.[7] Friedlander Group manages safety groups for the Retail, Wholesale, Restaurant, Hoteling, Oil Dealer, Social Services, and Residential Care industries. To date, Friedlander Group has issued $214 Million in dividend in addition to hundreds of millions in advance discounts. In 2005, the Insurance Journal ranked Friedlander Group as a Top 100 property/Casualty Independent Agency.[8][9]
