James Angelo is a commercial litigator with significant trial, arbitration, and appellate experience, whose practice focuses on transactional litigation, energy/oil & gas, class action defense, and financial services litigation. Mr. Angelo has successfully represented clients as the “first chair” in arbitration proceedings before the American Arbitration Association and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority.
Mr. Angelo has represented clients in disputes arising out of corporate transactions, including post-closing purchase price and working capital adjustment disputes, claims for indemnification (including escrow and non-escrow claims), and earn out disputes. In the area of transactional litigation, Mr. Angelo has assisted clients in avoiding lengthy and costly litigation by obtaining early-stage dismissal of multiple complaints, including the dismissal of claims brought by former shareholders of a pharmaceutical company seeking to extend the period of an earn out. In that case, the early dismissal of the claims was ultimately affirmed by the Pennsylvania Superior Court.
