In his early legal career, Anthony undertook much work in the areas of criminal law and personal injuries arising from motor vehicle collisions. 

In later years, he has developed his practice in medical litigation. This involves work in the context of coronial inquests, medical negligence actions and disciplinary work for health professionals.

Over the years, Anthony’s practice has developed to include a variety of other trial and appellate work in the practice areas noted above, particularly those related to assessing damages for personal injuries.

Anthony has an ongoing interest in legal education, especially advocacy training.  He has participated in advocacy programmes conducted by the Australian Advocacy Institute and the Law Society of SA.  He is an experienced advocacy coach in the ETAC run by the Australian Bar Association for Bar Readers. He was the Course Co-ordinator for the Adelaide based courses in 2014 and 2016.

For over a decade he was a reporter of cases for the South Australian State Reports.

Beyond his legal practice, Anthony has many interests in the wider community.

He has chaired or served on a number of School and Educational Boards.  

Anthony is a keen cricketer and still plays with the Adelaide University Cricket Club. He is a Life Member of that club. 

For over two decades, Anthony has been involved in many disciplinary hearings in sport, particularly in cricket. He is a current Commissioner of the Adelaide Turf Cricket Association, the South Australian Cricket Association and a Code of Conduct Commissioner with Cricket Australia.  

Anthony is currently enrolled in the Masters of Law programme at the University of Melbourne, specialising in Sports Law. He has recently been awarded the Graduate Diploma in Sports Law from that university.

Anthony has presented papers on legal issues at regional, national and international conferences.

In October 2015 ANZSLA presented him with the Paul Trisley Award for the best academic paper on a sports law topic. He was a member of the organising committee for the ANZSLA conference in Adelaide in 2014 and organised the Sports Law Conference which was part of the 5th International Lawyers' Cricket World Cup held in Brisbane in January 2016.
