Anthony King has been a successful litigator in federal and state courts for more than 16 years. Since coming to the firm in 2017, Anthony obtained a $3.2 million jury verdict for two former employees of a large Los Angeles school district who were terminated in retaliation for blowing the whistle on corruption within the school district. He later first-chaired a trial in a 526a taxpayer action against the school district resulting in the court finding that district had engaged in fraud.
Anthony has also successfully settled, without litigation, a significant breach of contract dispute, that allowed his client to be paid in full with interest, whereas other creditors took haircuts on their outstanding balances.
Some of Anthony’s recent representations include:
- Three clients who had substantial sums stolen from their brokerage accounts by a broker-dealer’s financial advisors in a high-stakes FINRA customer arbitration;
- An executive of solar energy technology that has been accused of misappropriation of trade secrets, violation of her non-disclosure agreement, and violating California Penal Code 502, among other claims; and
- The defense of three clients in Federal Court against an insurance company’s allegations of racketeering, fraud, and unlawful and fraudulent business practices.
Prior to coming to the Firm, Anthony worked for Wolf, Rifkin, Shapiro, Schulman & Rabkin LLP, where he was awarded a complete defense verdict at trial for an employer in a FEHA discrimination and retaliation case in Los Angeles Superior Court, and helped successfully settle several high-profile cases.
Anthony also worked at Kasowitz Benson Torres LLP in New York City, where his practice included complex commercial civil litigation and securities litigation for Fortune 500 corporations and executives. At Kasowitz, Anthony helped obtain an 80% recovery for two commercial note holders in the largest ever corporate fraud case involving a privately held company, as described by the FBI. He also represented the CEO of one of the largest mutual fund families in the highly-publicized enforcement actions concerning market-timing in mutual funds by the SEC and the New York Attorney General’s Office.
Anthony is licensed to practice in California and New York.
