Who's Who Legal Arbitration: Future Leaders - Non-partners

Dr Anna Kozmenko is a senior associate in Schellenberg Wittmer’s dispute resolution group in Zurich. She has represented states, state-owned entities and private companies in complex multi-jurisdictional disputes across a wide range of sectors with particular emphasis on natural resources, energy, telecommunications, engineering and construction. Anna’s experience as counsel, arbitrator and legal secretary to arbitral tribunals includes numerous international commercial and investment arbitrations, both ad hoc and institutional (under the ICC, LCIA, SCC, VIAC, AAA/ICDR, UNCITRAL, ICSID, ICSID Additional Facility and Swiss rules), at various seats and under a broad range of applicable laws.

Anna Kozmenko is an adjunct professor of law at the University of Arkansas School of Law, where she teaches international commercial arbitration. She regularly speaks and publishes on international commercial and investment arbitration. Anna currently serves as a member of the global executive board of the ICDR Young & International and as the past co-chair of the American Bar Association’s Russia-Eurasia committee. She is also a member of other professional associations, including the Swiss Arbitration Association (ASA), the International Council for Commercial Arbitration (ICCA), the ICC’s young arbitrators forum and the LCIA’s young international arbitration group (YIAG).


Anna Kozmenko is highly recognised for her arbitration work. In 2017, she was named as one of 15 “Most Highly Regarded Individuals” in the non-partners section of Who’s Who Legal: Arbitration Future Leaders. Who’s Who Legal describes her as being truly what an international arbitration lawyer should be: singularly advanced in her field in knowledge and in strategic skills in public and private arbitration. In 2014-2016, she was named as one of the top arbitration practitioners by the Russian Arbitration Association’s Below 40 chapter.

Prior to joining Schellenberg Wittmer, Anna Kozmenko worked for several years as an associate at a leading international law firm in Paris and New York. She graduated with highest honours from People’s Friendship University of Russia (BA, MA and SJD degrees) and obtained an LLM degree in international dispute settlement from the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva (MIDS).

Schellenberg Wittmer is one of the leading business law firms in Switzerland. Over 140 lawyers in Zurich, Geneva and Singapore advise domestic and international clients on all aspects of business law. The firm’s areas of expertise include banking and finance, competition and antitrust, construction, dispute resolution and international arbitration, intellectual property/information technology, mergers and acquisitions, private equity and venture capital, private clients and estates, real estate, restructuring and insolvency, taxation, white-collar crime and compliance. From its Singapore office, the firm covers key jurisdictions and markets in the Asia-Pacific region, assisting clients in both inbound and outbound investments, as well as in international arbitration.

WWL says: Anna Kozmenko "is outstanding as counsel and as arbitrator", and draws particular praise for top-tier work on Russia-related disputes.
