Anthony Sallah knew very early on that practicing law was what he wanted to do. Diligent and practical, Anthony is able to navigate clients through complex commercial or construction disputes, while guiding them toward their most desired result.
Anthony counsels institutional and individual clients in complex commercial litigation and construction matters in federal and state court, at the trial and appellate level. Anthony also has deep experience before numerous arbitration tribunals, including the American Arbitration Association (AAA), JAMS, and in arbitrations governed by international rules. He focuses on devising and implementing creative and unique solutions to help clients succeed, doing so through the most efficient manner possible.
He represents clients in the prosecution and defense of construction claims involving deficient design, productivity and scheduling, acceleration and compression, and defective work. He has litigated on behalf of and against owners, private equity lenders, contractors, designers, sureties, and engineering professionals in complex construction environments, including oil refineries, large-scale industrial facilities, mixed-use developments, and university projects.
Anthony also has extensive experience defending clients in product liability and consumer-related class action litigation. He has represented his clients in product liability and class action claims of virtually all sizes through the country across a variety of industries, including health care, banking, energy, manufacturing and telecommunications.
A testament to his skills, while with his former firm, Anthony was the lead associate in helping a global medical manufacturer secure a $645+ million judgment in federal court. That litigation team was recognized as Law360 “Legal Lions” for their efforts.
Anthony brings a positive energy to his work. He collaborates with a variety of personalities in, sometimes challenging, commercial settings to help his clients achieve their goals, whether it be through early intervention, in arbitration or negotiation, or in litigation.
