Alfy is perhaps best known for his experience in the appellate process. A former law clerk to the Honorable Arlin M. Adams on the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, he taught a course in appellate advocacy at the University of Pennsylvania Law School for five years. His appellate work has produced excellent results for clients including, in some cases, favorable settlements after the briefs were filed but the cases were argued and decided.
Several of Alfy’s matters have involved disputes between joint venturers or among shareholders of closely held companies. He has both trial and appellate experience in cases involving “dissenters’ rights” statutes and has both brought and defended suits based on the protections given certain minority shareholders under Pennsylvania’s Business Corporation Law.
