is co-chair of Fennemore's financial restructuring, bankruptcy and creditors' rights practice group, where he works on matters including collection and judgement work, breach of contract, partnership disputes and receiverships. He represents financial institutions, debtors, creditors, and trustees in all phases of complex litigation and restructuring transactions, including trials and appeals. As an AV Preeminent rated bankruptcy attorney, Anthony has a wide range of commercial litigation experience involving foreclosures, receiverships and guarantor litigation. His experience as a bankruptcy attorney has him representing clients at trial and various types of hearings before the Bankruptcy Court, District Court, and Arizona Supreme Court. He is also adept at litigation matters involving the rapidly-evolving cannabis industry and partnered on a precedent-setting bankruptcy case involving marijuana investors and distributors. Growing up near the O.K. Corral in Tombstone, Arizona, where his dad was a park ranger who helped open Kartchner Caverns to the public, Anthony has always had a great love for Arizona - and helping people - and knew from an early age he wanted to be a lawyer. These passions shape his view of his civil practice to this day where selling and merging companies really means saving jobs, keeping companies open, and maintaining the legacy of small business owners and their jobs that support hundreds of family members. Outside his work as a debt attorney, Anthony loves spending time in the great outdoors with his wife and three kids, exploring and camping in areas like Prescott, Cottonwood, Show Low, the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and the Carlsbad Caverns. Although he is a lifelong Cubs fan and grew up listening to Harry Caray on WGN Radio, his love for baseball carried into the Southwest, and he now often enjoys a cold beer with a hot dog at Arizona Diamondbacks games.
