Anthony has broad legal experience having previously worked in Regulatory Law and is a highly experienced Commercial Litigation Solicitor with over 10 years’ PQE but has been working in Law since 2006. His career to date has seen him mentioned in the Legal 500 and having worked in small boutique City law firms as well as large international firms.
As well as corporate drafting and being a robust litigator with experience across a diverse mix of commercial disputes, Anthony has particular experience in contractual claims, debt recovery, enforcement, civil fraud, injunctions, construction, repossession, insurance coverage, adverse possession, breach of restrictive covenant claims, insolvency and mediation. He takes joy in being the broad shoulders to support clients whether their claim or defence is worth hundreds or hundreds of thousands of pounds. He often says that litigation is as much about strategy as it is about procedural rules, case law or facts, but loves deploying all of these elements in case strategies.
As the main focus has been contentious disputes, the insight gleaned from litigating cases means that corporate drafting – whether this is a share purchase agreement, terms and conditions for a construction business or for software development, or a commercial lease – is also aided by knowing what to incorporate in terms of clauses.
Anthony has a particular interest in construction matters as it often focused on technical aspects, allowing him to draw important strands together.
Anthony acted for US pension funds and hedge fund managers in what was described by The Law Gazette as ‘one of the biggest civil litigation claims before the English court.’ This related to an alleged dividend tax reclaim fraud in Denmark with a claim value of £1.5 billion and involved multiple defendants and jurisdictions.
He also acted for HNW individuals in a successful Worldwide Freezing Order amounting to circa £4 million in one of the first cases involving cryptocurrency in England and Wales.
Anthony also successfully negotiated a claim from a liquidator from £1.2 million to just over £60,000 following Alternative Dispute Resolution proposals.
