Zachary Halper is a founding partner of Halper Sadeh LLP. He received his B.A. from Rutgers University and his J.D. from the Georgetown University Law Center, with honors.
While attending Georgetown, Mr. Halper clerked at several national and international law firms where he helped attorneys advise large companies in regulatory and litigation matters. Upon graduating from Georgetown, Mr. Halper went on to gain valuable experience clerking for the Honorable Allison Accurso, New Jersey Superior Court, Appellate Division.
Following his judicial clerkship, Mr. Halper became an associate at a nationally-acclaimed law firm representing investors in securities class actions and shareholder derivative lawsuits. He was actively involved in litigating numerous cases which resulted in substantial recoveries and shareholder reforms.
Notably, Mr. Halper played a leading role in Brendon v. Allegiant Travel Company, et al., No. 18-cv-01758 (D. Nev.), a high-profile securities class action lawsuit alleging that Allegiant Travel, a low-cost discount airline, concealed from investors widespread aircraft maintenance and understaffing issues that caused its passenger jets to abort takeoffs, make emergency landings, and experience delays. He drafted the amended complaint and defeated defendants’ efforts to dismiss the action. Shortly thereafter, the parties agreed to settle the action for $4 million, which has been preliminarily approved by the court.
Mr. Halper is admitted to practice in the States of New York and New Jersey, and the United States District Courts for the Southern District of New York and the District of New Jersey.
