Electronic Discovery. As a co-leader of Mayer Brown’s Electronic Discovery and Records Management group, Anthony has counseled large financial institutions, pharmaceutical companies and manufacturers on all aspects of the discovery and management of electronic information, including: the development of policies and procedures for the preservation, collection, review, and production of electronically stored information; the development of data source catalogues, disclosures, and responses relating to electronically stored information; the remediation of large volumes of legacy data (paper and electronic); and the defense of electronic discovery procedures before federal regulators and the courts. Anthony is editor of the Electronic Discovery Deskbook, a treatise published by PLI, and co-author of six chapters in this treatise. Anthony is a frequent speaker on electronic discovery issues and has published numerous articles on this topic.
Investigations. Anthony has conducted numerous internal investigations for potential liability and violations of laws and/or regulations on behalf of audit committees and general counsel offices in connection with inquiries from regulators, auditors, and plaintiffs.
