Anthony Hucklesby


"Articulate, sharp and produces excellent results"


Anthony prosecutes and defends in cases across the criminal spectrum, with an increasing emphasis on fraud.

Anthony is a CPS level 3 panel advocate and also prosecutes for local authorities, particularly in cases arising from trading standards investigations. 

His general crime experience includes single and multi-handed cases of serious violence (s.18 wounding/GBH, knifepoint robbery, false imprisonment), drugs and firearms offences, sexual offences and cases of dishonesty.  His fraud experience includes work as a led junior and alone in cases of high value fraud on HM Revenue and Customs, the NHS, the Department for Work and Pensions and local authorities.  His recent fraud experience includes cases of “fresh air invoicing”, advance fee fraud, NHS “insider” fraud, benefit fraud and credit and identity fraud, including in relation to high value property in West London.  He also prosecutes on behalf of the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), and is often engaged by the CPS at an early stage to provide charging advice.

His trading standards experience includes classic “rogue trader” cases, product safety, counterfeiting (under trademarks/copyright legislation), taxi licensing, environmental health (including fly-tipping), food safety and offences under the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations  (including in particular “aggressive business practices”). 

Prior to coming to the Bar, Anthony worked in the Office of the Prosecutor at the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia after first qualifying as a solicitor at a City law firm.  He maintains an interest in international work, and is occasionally engaged by the internal oversight department of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) in Jordan.
