Anthony trained at Theodore Goddard and qualified as a solicitor in 1987, before moving to Slaughter and May in 1990. In 1994 he joined Lawrence Graham, where he became a partner in 1996. Anthony has been a partner at HFW since 2009, and is global head of the HFW Competition and Regulatory Legal Service Group. Due to his broad experience and in-depth knowledge of regulatory areas such as competition and trade sanctions he is frequently quoted in the press and regularly gives presentations at industry and client events.

Anthony is recommended in Chambers 2016, for being "very experienced, with good instincts and a highly professional manner". Clients have said that "his technical knowledge is second to none". Chambers has previously recommended him as a "notable practitioner, earning acclaim for his 'in-depth knowledge' of a wide number of industries", and reported that he is "'measured in his approach', according to impressed interviewees", that "clients appreciate that 'he takes the time to consider and evaluate all details' and is able to 'think on his feet when it comes to linking the item for discussion with relevant issues'" and that he is "incredibly responsive and available, and always meets deadlines", with "excellent client service". Legal 500 2015 describes him as "highly intelligent, experienced, knowledgeable and responsive" and adds that "he knows the answers, knows the market, and gives pragmatic, commercial advice", exercising "good judgment". He is recommended as an expert in Who's Who Legal for his "first-class know-how" in sanctions.
