An acknowledged leading practitioner in Employment and Sports Law, Antony's practice is set firmly in a background of commercial litigation, with a strong emphasis on restrictive covenant, confidential information and garden leave injunctions. He is also an Accredited Mediator and undertakes some Professional Negligence litigation.
Antony combines excellent advocacy and advisory skills with sound commercial common sense and a generous helping of good humour, to provide a service that is professional and user-friendly. Highly rated as a cross-examiner, he particularly enjoys trial advocacy, but is equally at home persuading High Court Judges to grant injunctions or debating the fiendish intricacies of statutory instruments in the Court of Appeal. He also has excellent negotiating and mediating skills, crucial items in the toolkit of a successful litigator.
The directories and legal press describe him as “an excellent advocate”, with “a sharp intellect and sound knowledge of law”, “tenacious and well-prepared”, “one of the most incisive … give him a pile of papers and he will cut through to the core”. He is also “bright, decisive and commercial”, “a pleasure to work with and a great person to have on the team”. He “really works hard to make a difference to a case”.
