Anthony Hucklesby


"Articulate, sharp and produces excellent results"


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

He has been appointed to the CPS General Crime and Specialist Fraud Panels at level 3 and the Serious Fraud Office Prosecution Panel at level B.

He is often instructed by the Crown at an early stage in complex multi-handed cases to advise on evidence and charge.

Recent instructions have included allegations of corporation tax cheat/VAT evasion, smuggling (tobacco and illegal drugs), legal aid fraud, maritime salvage fraud and money laundering. He has appeared for the Crown as junior counsel in a number of particularly high value and sensitive cases, including most recently a £100 million money laundering case, a £40 million “fresh air invoicing” case and a high value insider fraud on the NHS.

He maintains a general criminal practice, with recent experience including allegations ranging from serious violence, robbery, burglary and drug supply to firearms, false imprisonment and sexual offending.

He also prosecutes on behalf of the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency in cases involving offences under the Human Medicines Regulations 2012, and for local authorities in trading standards cases.

Prior to coming to the Bar, Anthony worked on a Prosecution team at the ICTY in the Hague after first qualifying as a solicitor at a City law firm. He maintains an interest in international work, and has twice been engaged by the Department of Internal Oversight Services of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) to conduct internal investigations in Jordan and other areas of the Agency’s operation.
