Anthony is known for handling high-stakes business litigations of all types in an aggressive but practical way. He approaches cases with a goal to avoid nonsense and plot the straightest line to the endgame. With that style, he has compiled a track record of successes including a complete victory for a real estate company in a fast-moving billion-dollar dispute, a dismissal of nine-figure lender-liability claims against a syndicate of lenders and a dismissal of all claims against one of the world's largest credit insurance companies. Anthony is equally comfortable representing plaintiffs and defendants, in courtrooms throughout the United States as well as in arbitrations and ADR fora.
Anthony doesn't just resolve disputes for banks, hedge funds, real estate companies and other businesses; he helps avoid them in the first place. He outlines steps businesses can take to protect themselves from possible claims and, when a matter ends, conducts a "lessons learned" program. His broad experience – which includes Ponzi scheme cases, contract disputes, corporate law, financial services litigation financial and international proceedings – allows him to design strategies that anticipate the full range of possibilities. Anthony knows that disputes in the public eye require a deft multi-prong strategy. He has represented clients in claims arising from the Bernard Madoff Ponzi scheme, including one that spawned international proceedings in the United States, United Kingdom, Gibraltar and the Cayman Islands. When he represented a real estate company in a billion-dollar dispute over the sale of the nation's largest federally subsidized housing development, the media kept a close watch. In each case, Anthony found the right balance between public relations concerns and aggressive advocacy.
