Anthony Lopes started his professional journey as a business major at Temple University’s Fox School of Business, where he took a legal studies course and fell in love with negotiation and the ways in which the law intertwines with business. Tony went on to law school at Rutgers University and gained experience as an attorney and a business consultant before joining Spadea Lignana in 2017.
Tony’s goal is to help business owners achieve their goals through strategic negotiation. From trademarks to contracts, Tony is the guy to get you to the finish line as efficiently as possible, with a smile on his face. He also has an LL.M in Tax Law, so he’s a key asset when estate planning or succession planning.
Business owners emigrating to the United States are often flooded with information and uncertainty. Tony’s goal is to speak the language of these clients, who come from different cultural backgrounds, so that they can understand every aspect of business and law. In fact, he is fluent in Spanish and Portuguese, which gives him the opportunity to connect with often underserviced populations. Tony’s positive nature is important in building confidence of clients who may be facing a number of challenges.
Tony’s wife owns her own business, The Tailory LLC, so he understands both sides of a business deal and the challenges that come with owning a business. In fact, he helped create the business plan, launch marketing efforts, and even design and develop the website for The Tailory. His legal know-how, combined with his empathy for business owners, allows him to steer clear of unnecessary, adversarial communication and ensure that his clients can come to a mutual agreement with landlords and other opposing counsel.
Tony’s unquenchable thirst for knowledge has recently led him to start learning French. When he’s not studying up on a new language, you may find him rock climbing with his wife and dog.
