Antony is Head of the Banking & Finance team. Australian born, he is admitted as a solicitor in both Australia (Queensland) and England & Wales. He also holds a Bachelor of Business degree, majoring in banking and finance.

Antony’s experience lays in corporate and commercial law where he has built up a wealth of expertise in transactional work such as advising clients on M&Aprivate investment, and joint ventures.

Over time Antony’s practice has pivoted away from general corporate transactional work and towards financial services. Today he spends much of his time advising banks and other lending institutions and corporate borrowers on a wide array of leveraged financing transactions including, acquisition, real estate and trade finance as well as general corporate lending and Sharia’a compliant finance.

Antony also regularly advises clients on FCA regulatory issues surrounding financial promotion and regulated activities and advises managers in relation to the set-up, structuring and documenting of property, venture, debt and hedge funds.

Antony has built a reputation as a skilled advisor and is commended by clients for his commercial and pragmatic style.
