Angelo Langadakis III
Prior to practicing law, Angelo was an auditor for a public accounting firm in Manhattan. As an auditor, he was responsible for testing and tracing support for various line items appearing on a company’s financial statements in accordance with GAAS, confirming the presentation of financial statements was in accordance with GAAP, and assisting with the preparation of Form 990 for NPOs and 990-PF for private foundations.
During law school, he had the privilege of working under two federal judges: the Hon. Kathleen A. Tomlinson of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York, where he was responsible for reviewing threshold motions concerning evidence and applications concerning the reasonableness of attorneys fee awards, and the Hon. Paul A. Crotty of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, where he was responsible for reviewing threshold motions on securities and employment litigation matters.
During his time at Labaton Susharow, LLP, he investigated a variety of potential securities fraud cases, working with a team of former FBI investigators, financial analysts, and trial attorneys. Each case headed to trial justified the use of mock/shadow juries, which he was involved in observing and analyzing in preparation for trial.
While working at a small private law practice in Astoria, Queens, he focused almost exclusively on civil litigation, including civil appeals to the Second Department and helping domestic violence victims obtain emergency orders of protection in Family Court.
He has served and continues to serve as outside general counsel to contractors, real estate holding and management companies, fitness centers, equestrian breeding and racing farms, equestrian stables, online marketing and advertising companies, and startup technology companies.
He currently focuses his practice on a wide range of commercial fraud cases, including Civil RICO cases involving extortion and mail or wire fraud, New York General Business Law 349 (deceptive business acts and practices), common law fraud, first and third-party insurance claims, trust fund diversion, and concealment of assets and income in matrimonial litigation.
His professional interests are in the rules of civil procedure and evidence. Angelo is a member of the New York State Bar Association’s Committee on Procedures for Judicial Discipline and an attorney mentor for the Miller Place High School’s Mock Trial program.
