Jason H. Alperstein
Working tirelessly to ensure the best possible outcome for my clients is the cornerstone of every case I litigate.
Jason Alperstein is a partner in Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP’s Boca Raton office. He focuses his practice in the areas of class action, consumer fraud and securities litigation, and is admitted to the bars of both Florida and New York.
Alperstein is an integral member of the In re Volkswagen “Clean Diesel” Marketing, Sales Practices, & Prods. Liab. Litig., No. 15-md-2672 (N.D. Cal.), litigation team, prosecuting claims on behalf of almost 600,000 consumers who were duped into purchasing and leasing Volkswagen, Audi and Porsche vehicles that were marketed as environmentally friendly, yet spewed toxic pollutants up to 40 times the legal limit permitted by the EPA. Working closely with named partner Paul J. Geller, who was selected by Judge Charles R. Breyer to serve as a member of the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee, Alperstein has been involved in almost all aspects of the litigation. The settlement pertaining to the 2.0-liter vehicles at issue, in combination with the related government settlements, is valued at over $17 billion and represents arguably the largest consumer class action settlement in U.S. history. He is also actively involved in a number of nationwide class actions currently pending throughout the country, including In re National Hockey League Players’ Concussion Injury Litig., No. 14-md-02551 (D. Minn.), involving the NHL’s failure to warn players of the risk of long-term neurological damages from repetitive head trauma, and Evans v. Arizona Cardinals Football Club, LLC, No. 16-cv-01030 (N.D. Cal.), involving the conspiracy of the NFL and its Clubs to violate federal drug laws to ensure that injured players returned to play as soon as possible.
Alperstein has also served on lead and co-lead litigation teams in nationwide and statewide class action lawsuits against dozens of the largest banking institutions in connection with the unlawful assessment of checking account overdraft fees. His efforts resulted in over $250 million in settlements for his clients and significant changes in the way banks charge overdraft fees to their customers. In addition, he has led consumer class actions against national banks for illegal payday lending, consumer product manufacturers for false and deceptive labeling, and some of the world’s largest clothing retailers for their use of false and deceptive comparative pricing in their outlet stores.
Alperstein has also successfully represented institutional investors in securities fraud and derivative actions seeking damages related to the origination and servicing of residential mortgage-backed securities. Furthermore, he has substantial experience representing both plaintiffs and defendants in business litigation disputes involving trademark infringement, theft of trade secrets, fraudulent and negligent misrepresentation, breach of fiduciary duty, breach of contract, tortious interference, and commercial real estate litigation.
In connection with his representation in class action and securities matters, Alperstein has litigated cases in multiple state and federal jurisdictions throughout the country, including multi-district litigation proceedings. Despite his young career, Alperstein has been appointed class counsel in five national class action lawsuits and has been featured in The Daily Business Review. He has also been named to Benchmark Litigation’s Top Litigator Under 40 list, selected as a Consumer Protection Rising Star by Law360 and a Florida Super Lawyer “Rising Star” in the Class Action & Mass Torts category for the past four years.
Alperstein is a native of South Florida and is the past Miami-Dade Area Chair of the Brown Alumni Schools Committee. He also is a founding member of the American Heart Association’s PULSE, has been inducted into the Leadership Broward Foundation, and is a graduate of the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS). Prior to practicing law, Alperstein served as an intern for United States Senator Bob Graham in Washington, D.C., and as an intern for Wolf Blitzer Reports in the Washington, D.C. bureau of CNN.
Alperstein earned a dual Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and Sociology, with honors, from Brown University. While at Brown, he was a sprinter on the Varsity Track & Field team and served as an intern for Judge Gilbert V. Indeglia of the Superior Court of Rhode Island. Alperstein received a Juris Doctor degree, cum laude, from the University of Miami School of Law, where he was a member of the Business Law Review, and a Masters of Business Administration in Finance from the University of Miami School of Business, where he was a Graduate Assistant Scholar.
