There are not many professionals who can say that they have had a career that is as varied and as interesting as Anthony Petrello’s career is. Many people tend to follow a single course of study and then go on to pursue a career that is in the course of study that they completed when they were undergraduates. However, things were very different for Anthony Petrello as a young man. If you had met when he first graduated from high school and made his way to Yale University as a freshman you would probably have never have guessed that he would go on to become one of the nation’s highest paid oil executives. As a young man at Yale University Anthony became fascinated with the subject of mathematics. His spent his time at the ivy league university under the tutelage of one of the most exciting mathematical scholars in the United States at the time.

The time that he spent working on mathematical theories and equations inspired Anthony Petrello to go on to complete graduate studies at Yale University and graduate with a Masters of Science in Mathematics. Given his aptitude for advanced mathematics many people probably expected Anthony Petrello to go on to complete a doctorate degree in mathematics but things did not end up working out that way. Anthony chose to shift his attention away from mathematics and towards the world of law. After receiving his master’s degree from Yale University Anthony chose to enroll in Harvard University’s Law School taking a sharp turn away from a life in academia. The time that Anthony spent at Harvard University prepared him for a career in the world of corporate law. After several years of studying law at Harvard University Anthony Petrello was hired by a law firm that was known as Baker & McKenzie.

During his time at Baker and McKenzie law firm Anthony Petrello spent his time working with clients who needed advice in the areas of commercial law and tax law. Because of his strong work ethic and aptitude for the law Anthony rose through the ranks of Baker and McKenzie steadily until he reached the position of managing partner of the practice’s office in New York City. It was during his time at Baker and McKenzie that Anthony would become acquainted with the oil company that he would eventually come to lead. Initially Anthony Petrello was introduced to Nabors Industries as a lawyer who was advising the company as a client. Anthony ended up doing outstanding legal work for Nabors Industries and this caught the company’s attention. Soon they decided to make Anthony an offer and to convince him to leave his position as a lawyer with Baker and McKenzie and to become an employee of Nabors Industries.
