Antony is a Partner in Druces’ Corporate & Commercial team. He has built up a wealth of expertise in transactional work such as advising clients on M&A, private 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 regularly advises clients on FCA regulatory issues surrounding financial promotion and regulated activities. He also advises managers in relation to the set-up, structuring and documenting of property, venture, debt and hedge funds.
Australian born, Antony 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 has built a reputation as a skilled advisor and is commended by clients for his commercial and pragmatic style, this is exemplified in the Legal 500 directory where Antony is described as: “sensitive to the needs of our particular business and takes the trouble to understand what really matters to us; he’s an excellent lawyer, but what makes the difference is his commerciality”.
