Who’s Who Legal: Future Leaders – Arbitration names 529 outstanding arbitrators and counsels aged 45 and under. The future leaders are divided into partners and non-partners. Among those future leaders, the publication distinguishes a small number of "Most Highly Regarded Individuals" in both the partners' and non-partners' category.
In partner's category, Schellenberg Wittmer partner and Vice-Chair of the Arbitration Practice Group Christopher Boog was among the top 4 most highly nominated individuals globally, together with peers from Latham & Watkins and Freshfields in London and Linklaters in Paris. Chris is reported to be "just brilliant", "one of the best advocates I have ever seen" and "definitely a leader in the field – highly respected by colleagues".
In the non-partner's category, Senior Associate Anna Kozmenko was chosen among the 18 most highly regarded individuals. The report says that Anna "is truly what an international arbitration lawyer should be; singularly advanced in her field in knowledge and in strategic skills in public and private arbitration". Who’s Who Legal has almost two decades of experience cataloguing the foremost experts in various fields of law, including arbitration, using a system of peer review.
The firm congratulates Chris and Anna for their achievements and is proud of the entire Arbitration Practice Group, which with a total of nine listings ranks among the top ten arbitration practices in the world.
