Anton Garmoza
I am a lawyer specializing in international commercial and investment arbitration. I act as counsel in arbitration proceedings and I also accept appointments as arbitrator.

Prior to starting my own practice I worked as an in-house lawyer and as an associate at two international law firms. As a member of a special task force I also advised the Russian Ministry of Justice in connection with the largest investment treaty arbitration in history and the related litigation proceedings across multiple jurisdictions.

I am qualified to practice law in Russia and is admitted to the bar in the State of New York. I am a graduate of New York University (NYU) School of Law and also hold a Ph.D. in Private International Law from the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration.
