Joshua B. Alper, who is a partner in the Morgan & Morgan Business Trial Group’s Miami office, primarily practices in complex commercial litigation and bankruptcy law. He has significant litigation experience in both state and federal courts, representing clients in a wide range of matters.
Alper’s experience spans a variety of disputes that arise in the commercial litigation space, including complex breach of contracts, 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, and disputes under the Uniform Commercial Code.
Prior to joining the Business Trial Group, Alper honed his legal skills at some of the most prominent law firms in Florida. He was also part of a trial team that obtained a jury verdict in excess of $66 million in damages and interest against one of the nation’s largest financial institutions. The case involved misconduct by a bank that caused a real estate developer to lose the entire project.
Alper has been named a Florida Super Lawyer “Rising Star,” which recognizes the top 2.5% of lawyers in Florida under the age of 40. He also has been selected by the South Florida Legal Guide as a “Top Up and Comer.” In 2018, Attorney at Law Magazine selected Mr. Alper as a “Rising Star,” and featured him in an article about legal strategy and practical skills.
Alper focuses his practice on contingency-fee business litigation, which allows him to advocate his clients’ interests and ensures that wealthier individuals or companies do not have a competitive advantage because of their unlimited legal resources.
