Mr. DeBlasio is the founder and managing member of DeBlasio & Gower LLC. Tony has over 22 years of experience as a trial lawyer and advisor. He has counseled individuals, business executives, for profit and not-for-profit companies and government bodies in complex litigation matters, internal investigations and dispute resolution strategies. Tony has been selected as an Illinois Super Lawyer in Business Litigation on many occasions. Only 5% of attorneys receive this distinction. Tony has represented clients from a multitude of industry sectors, including, health care, technology, communications, financial, education, real estate, manufacturing, construction, management firms, consulting firms, not for profits, religious organizations, as well as foreign and domestic government entities. The breadth of his experience is evidenced by the representation of foreign clients’ interests in the United States, as well as the fact that he has served as a Special Assistant Attorney General on behalf of an Illinois Governor, as special outside counsel to the Illinois State Board of Education, and as counsel to a receiver appointed by a federal court in an SEC action involving a massive Ponzi scheme. Mr. DeBlasio has successfully prosecuted and defended matters in many adversarial settings, including state and federal courts in Illinois, Arizona, Indiana, New York, Ohio, Iowa, Missouri and Pennsylvania, arbitration and mediation matters before the American Arbitration Association and the American Health Lawyers Association, the Illinois Health Facilities Planning Board and the Illinois Court of Claims. Prior to starting the firm, Tony was a partner in the Commercial Litigation Group of one of Chicago’s largest law firms (Gardner, Carton & Douglas n/k/a Drinker Biddle & Reath). Tony then served as a litigation partner at a small, boutique law firm in DuPage County, Illinois that focused on representing government entities.
