Anthony Decicco


Tony Decicco founded and oversees GTC Law Group’s open source compliance and due diligence practice consisting of attorneys and paralegals almost all of whom are former software developers. Tony has advised clients regarding the use of open source software since at least 2005 and frequently speaks on related topics. In addition, he has reviewed the results of literally thousands of code scans.

Tony’s clients range from start-ups to Fortune-100 companies. Given his extensive experience on both the buy and sell sides of mergers and acquisitions, patent purchases/sales and IP/technology licensing transactions, he is a trusted advisor to clients on all sides of the table. For acquirers and investors, a key strength is his ability to leverage this experience to quickly identify and assess IP-related risks. On the sell side, this experience translates to grooming clients and positioning IP assets to maximize value and minimize issues during rigorous due diligence.

Prior to joining GTC, Tony was a member of the IP & Technology, Internet & E-Commerce and M&A practice groups at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom. Tony holds an Honors B.Sc. in Biochemistry from McMaster University, an M.A. in Economics and a J.D., both from the University of Toronto, where he was a law review editor.
