Anthony Diana focuses his practice on commercial litigation, electronic discovery, internal and regulatory investigations, and bankruptcies.

Commercial litigation. Anthony has represented clients in complex litigations, including class actions and multi-district litigations, involving alleged violations of state and federal securities laws, antitrust and anti-competitive laws, and RICO laws. He has prosecuted and defended breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, fraud, and lender liability claims, and counseled clients regarding mass tort liability, settlement strategy, and potential claims against plaintiffs' counsel and experts.

Electronic Discovery. As a co-leader of Mayer Brown's Electronic Discovery & Information Governance practice, 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.

Bankruptcy. He has also represented creditors in prosecuting claims against debtor's estate, and defended parties in adversary actions involving preference claims, fraudulent conveyance claims, and commercial non-bankruptcy law claims.

Prior to joining Mayer Brown in 1997, Anthony practiced at another prominent New York law firm. Previously (1993-1994), he served as Law Clerk to The Honorable Jay C. Waldman, US District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
