A former federal prosecutor and experienced courtroom attorney, Tom Fallati represents clients in civil litigation and government investigations.

Tom is a graduate of Union College (B.A., magna cum laude, 1992) and Harvard Law School (J.D., cum laude, 1995).

Tom has successfully represented clients in complex multi-million dollar disputes. He has extensive trial experience in federal and state courts, as well as in arbitration. His experience includes breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, unfair and deceptive practices and other ‘commercial tort’ matters, corporate and partnership disputes, employment disputes and a wide range of other commercial disputes.

Tom’s trial victories include a $10 million recovery in 2014 for a privately-held IT company against a publicly-traded software company for unfair and deceptive trade practices. In 2012, he secured a trial victory on behalf of a publicly-traded company in a complex commercial contract matter, winning dismissal of over $30 million in claims and securing a judgment of over $1 million.

Drawing on his federal prosecution experience, Tom also represents whistleblowers bringing fraud to the attention of the government. Tom also represents clients before federal and state regulatory agencies and in white-collar criminal investigations.

Prior to joining Tabner, Ryan & Keniry, Tom worked for many years in New York City and served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Eastern District of New York. As a member of that office’s Business and Securities Fraud Section, he prosecuted securities fraud, tax evasion, health care fraud, insurance fraud and other white-collar criminal cases. Tom also worked in private practice, representing entities and individuals in criminal and regulatory enforcement investigations and civil litigation matters.
