Anthony, who was named the 2018 and 2019 US Trade Secrets Lawyer of the Year by Financial Monthly, is recognized by Chambers USA and Chambers Global as a leader in labor and employment law. Chambers states that he is regarded as a “calming force in difficult circumstances” and is “praised for his strategic capabilities.” Chambers has noted him as “a masterful strategist with a great appreciation of practical business concerns, ‘[he] is a driving force at the practice.’” Clients have stated that he is a “[p]henomenal litigator,” is “masterful in front of judges,” “[has a] creative and thoughtful approach to counseling and negotiations” and is “adept at handling ‘very complex, high-stakes litigation with very sophisticated corporate clients,’” Chambers also quotes sources who say, “Anthony is just excellent at sorting out all our complex employee relations matters” and is “an excellent litigator who is very talented in trade secrets work.” Clients have also commented on his “innate attributes as a trial lawyer; he’s exceptionally well prepared and his presentation in the courtroom is marvelous,” and how “he has a high degree of integrity, develops and executes a solid legal strategy, and is able to clearly articulate legal principles.”

Anthony received the Lexology Client Choice Award in both 2020 and 2021, an honor which recognizes attorneys from around the world who “stand apart for the excellent client care they provide and the quality of their service.” He was recognized for Employment & Benefits, with clients noting that, “Anthony makes sure that his clients are his priority” and that he “is excellent with details and his tactics are brilliant.” Others stated, “Anthony responds in a very timely manner, which is a must-have for a great lawyer” and his “experience in his field is second to none.”
Anthony was called to the Bar of England and Wales in 1979 and practiced as a Barrister in England before coming to the United States.
Anthony has written numerous articles on employment law topics. He co-authored the chapter on “Introduction to Employment Laws of the United States for Foreign Investors” in Business One Irwin’s Business Opportunities in the United States Reference Guide and the chapter on “Labor Law in the Construction Industry” in Aspen Publications’ Construction Business Handbook.
