He has significant litigation experience in both state and federal courts, representing clients in a wide range of matters.
Mr. Alper exclusively handles cases on a contingency-fee basis, which enables him to vigorously advocate his clients’ interests, ensuring that wealthier individuals or companies do not have a competitive advantage due to their unlimited legal resources. He firmly believes the final outcome of a case should not depend on whether a party is well-funded, but should be dictated by the merits.
His experience spans the spectrum of disputes that arise in the commercial litigation context, including complex breach of contract cases, fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, shareholder actions (both direct and derivative), non-compete matters, misappropriation of trade secrets, tortious interference, writs of garnishment and replevin, securities litigation, as well as disputes under the Uniform Commercial Code.
As part of Mr. Alper’s federal court practice, he also has significant experience representing secured and unsecured creditors in bankruptcy court in adversary proceedings and contested matters under Chapters 7, 11, and 13 of the Bankruptcy Code. In this connection, he has handled the prosecution and defense of preference and fraudulent transfer actions, and has been involved in contested confirmation hearings.
