Anthony was called to the Bar in July 1989 following the completion firstly of a law degree at the University of London (QMC) and then of the Bar Finals exams at the Inns of Court School of Law. As can be seen from his list of reported cases Anthony regularly undertakes extremely complex cases, and he appears in the High Court and the Court of Appeal on a fairly regularly basis.
