Anthony began his career in private practice (with the firm of Gibson & Gibson), before joining the Crown Solicitor’s Office, and then working exclusively as a prosecutor with the Offices of the Director of Public Prosecutions in Western Australia, the Northern Territory and the Fiji Islands. For a number of years he has held a commission as a Legal Officer in the Royal Australian Air Force Special Reserves dealing with disciplinary issues, grievances and inquiry matters.

Anthony has extensive criminal law experience, prosecuting jury trials in the Supreme Court and District Court and as appellate counsel before Courts of Appeal and before Fiji’s ultimate appellate court, the Supreme Court of Fiji.
 
In 2008, Anthony spent ten months as Deputy DPP for Fiji. During that time, he was also the Director of the Serious Fraud Unit within the DPP, overseeing the serious fraud cases, and handling the more difficult of those cases. His work involved consideration of constitutional issues, and giving opinions on some of the most contentious cases of the time.
