Experience

Anthony "Tony" F. Vittoria is a principal in Ober|Kaler’s ConstructionLitigation, Policyholder Insurance and Intellectual Property Groups. Tony prides himself on taking a “businessman’s” view of dispute resolution. Rather than employing the most aggressive tactics to gain a slight edge regardless of the cost, he strives to take steps that are cost-effective and in the long-term best interest of his clients.

In the area of construction law, Tony represents owners, design/builders, prime contractors and subcontractors in a variety of settings, including negotiations, mediation, arbitration, bench trials and jury trials. He has worked on construction matters throughout the United States as well as in Europe and Africa.

Tony handles a variety of civil litigation matters, including intellectual property litigation involving patents, trademarks and copyrights, insurance coverage matters, commercial contract disputes and employment-related litigation for clients from a range of industries.

As co-chair of Ober|Kaler’s Electronically Stored Information (ESI) practice, he advises clients on document retention policies that provide for the unique issues raised by ESI. In addition, he has extensive experience assisting clients in litigation-related ESI concerns.

Tony also co-authors Ober|Kaler's blog on intellectual property issues, www.OberIPWatch.com.

In the community, Tony is Treasurer and Former President of the Locust Point Civic Association, a nonprofit neighborhood association for a community of over 1200 households. He is also active with the Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service.
