Previously, Anthony was General Counsel and Vice President of Operations at a leading IT Managed Service Provider which provides businesses in the Philadelphia area with network monitoring, data infrastructure support and business technology solutions. Among other things, Anthony was responsible for developing policies and procedures to prevent data breaches and cyber-attacks and coordinating responses to them. Anthony’s background in engineering and complex litigation helped ensure that his clients’ vulnerabilities were proactively considered and responded to appropriately.

Anthony earned his undergraduate degree in Biomedical Engineering from The Catholic University of America in Washington D.C. and his law degree from The Chicago-Kent College of Law, Illinois Institute of Technology. At Chicago-Kent, he received a Certificate in Intellectual Property, a Certificate of Distinction in Strategies in Intellectual Property Law and was the Managing Editor of the Chicago-Kent Journal of Intellectual Property. Following admission to the Illinois Bar, he worked at a boutique firm in Chicago focusing on complex federal litigation representing plaintiffs in both class and individual actions. Anthony’s technical expertise allowed him to develop strategies to quickly and comprehensively analyze complex and voluminous electronically stored information (ESI) to uncover patterns of conduct and fraudulent activity. He is also a member of the Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and Illinois bars and is admitted to practice in the Northern District of Illinois, the Eastern District of Pennsylvania and the District of New Jersey.
