Biography

ANTHONY ARGIROPOULOS represents health care clients, publicly held companies, and other large businesses in high-stakes litigation and dispute avoidance and resolution. He represents clients in federal and state court matters throughout the United States, and his deep experience includes numerous jury trials, bench trials, injunction proceedings, arbitrations, and mediations. He has successfully argued appeals to the New Jersey Supreme Court and the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.

Anthony represents a complete array of health care clients—from providers, like hospital systems, ambulatory surgery centers, pharmacies and medical groups, to pharmaceutical companies, equipment manufacturers, and distributors. He also represents diverse commercial enterprises, like retailers, supermarkets, and regulated businesses, such as recyclers and energy companies.

Anthony’s litigation style has been characterized as “smart-aggressive” and recognized in numerous, prestigious national lawyer rankings. In 2018, one publication wrote “The most effective counterpunch is one thrown before the opponent lands his first blow. That’s the mindset Anthony Argiropoulos has when his legal instincts tell him to switch his clients from defense to offense.” In 2020, another publication quoted Anthony’s clients who noted his ability to “think outside the box and frequently come up with creative solutions to problems.”

Anthony’s broad commercial litigation background includes antitrust, commercial torts, contract disputes, defamation and disparagement, Lanham Act and unfair competition.

During the COVID-19 crisis, the United States House of Representatives Oversight Committee contacted Anthony for advice and information relating to unfair commercial practices and price gouging for personal protective equipment and other essential commodities.
