Anthony heads the Crime and Regulatory team. He is a leading authority on domestic and international criminal law and has a wealth of high-profile court experience.

Anthony has been a prominent figure in criminal defence work for nearly 40 years and is ranked as a Leading Individual by The Legal 500 and Chambers UK.

Chambers UK 2013 notes, “Although he has risen to prominence by advising public figures from the entertainment world, sources are keen to stress that ‘you get the same treatment no matter who you are’. As such, ‘clients feel comfortable in his presence’. Market sources “rate his down-to-earth manner, his knowledge of criminal fraud and his ability to clearly explain complex issues”.

Anthony is Chairman of the Board of the Royal Court Theatre and is a regular writer and broadcaster on legal affairs. He is a Council member of the all party organisation Justice.
