Anthony Horgan is a partner and co-founder of Reliance Law Group. His practice is focused on advising companies throughout their development cycle, from initial formation to fund raising, operations and eventual exit. He’s advised both private and public companies on a wide variety of issues, including public and private placements of debt and equity securities, mergers and acquisitions, recapitalizations, regulatory compliance and general corporate  governance.

Anthony began his career as an associate at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, being mentored by some of the best corporate attorneys in the country. Following Skadden, he held executive management and legal advisory positions.  His diverse background and experience shape his approach to each project as a facilitator to help his clients achieve their goals.
