Anthony Acampora Bio
Anthony C. Acampora
Partner-In-Charge of the Firm
Chairman of the Litigation Group
When not managing the Firm, Anthony
handles complex commercial litigation in
the state and federal courts and manages
the attorneys and cases in the Litigation
Group. He began his career with a large
New York City firm primarily representing
banks, factors, and a wealth of other
financial institutions. During the last 30
years, his practice has steadily expanded
to include a wide variety of businesses
and business owners across every market
sector. Anthony has represented and
advised business clients in virtually every
type of commercial dispute. Whether it
is during the early stages of litigation, at
trial, or in the state and federal appellate
courts, Anthony often enables our clients
to realize results that other attorneys
have deemed to be unattainable.
Anthony’s advocacy has resulted in the
recovery by our clients of hundreds
of millions of dollars. For example,
his substantial skills in the areas of
accountants’ malpractice and directors’
and officers’ liability claims alone have
provided our clients with multimillion
dollar recoveries. Anthony has also saved
our clients equally impressive sums. When
the sellers of a retail business were faced
with a suit to recover the $80 million
purchase price, Anthony quickly and
efficiently brought the case to a successful
and completely satisfactory conclusion.
Equally adept in the boardroom as he is
in the courtroom, our business clients
turn to Anthony for advice concerning
corporate governance, board of director
liability and responsibility, and business
succession issues. Anthony works closely
with the Business Law Group regarding
the litigation implications of deal structure.
He advises the Firm’s other practice
groups when litigation issues present
themselves.
Anthony is the former statewide Chair
of the New York State Bar Association
Continuing Legal Education Seminar
on Judgment Enforcement, and is the
former local Chair for the Continuing
Legal Education Seminar on Basics of
Bankruptcy.
During the 2014 U.S. Open, Anthony
received the City Parks Foundation’s Vitas
Geruliatis Community Service Award from
tennis legend, Billie Jean King. Anthony
is currently on the Board of Directors of
the American Red Cross on Long Island,
the Mary Jane Casillo Foundation and
the Acampora Concussion Awareness
Foundation.
His charity work also included a board
position for the National Multiple
Sclerosis Society, Long Island Chapter,
for which he acted as Chair of the
Governance Committee.
