Alfred L. Fatale III focuses on prosecuting complex securities fraud cases on behalf of institutional and individual investors.
Alfred represents investors in cases related to the protection of the financial markets in trial and appellate courts throughout the country. In particular, he is leading the firm’s efforts in litigating securities claims against several companies in state courts following the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Cyan, Inc. v. Beaver City Employees’ Retirement Fund. This includes prosecuting In re ADT Inc. Shareholder Litigation, a case alleging that the offering documents for ADT’s $1.47 billion IPO misrepresented the competition the company was facing from do-it-yourself home security products.
He recently secured an $11 million settlement for investors in In re CPI Card Group Inc., Securities Litigation, a class action brought by an individual retail investor against a debit and credit card manufacturer that allegedly misrepresented demand for its products prior to the company’s IPO.
Alfred is also actively involved in Murphy v. Precision Castparts Corp., a case against a major aerospace parts manufacturer that allegedly misled investors about its market share and demand for its products, and Boston Retirement System v. Alexion Pharmaceuticals Inc., a class action arising from the company’s conduct in connection with sales of Soliris – a drug that costs between $500,000 and $700,000 a year. He is also currently engaged in litigating an appeal in Oklahoma Firefighters Pension and Retirement System v. Xerox Corporation.
Prior to joining Labaton Sucharow, Alfred was an associate at Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP, where he advised and represented financial institutions, investors, officers, and directors in a broad range of complex disputes and litigations including cases involving violations of federal securities law and business torts.
