Practice groupLitigation

Specializing in dispute resolution and corporate investigations, Anton is able to help clients navigate through difficult situations. Economic growth in South East Asia has brought lucrative opportunities for foreign investors – but also considerable legal, regulatory and commercial risks. Anton has been based in Singapore since 2009. He understands the problems clients face in the region and knows how to avoid the pitfalls.

With a predominantly multi-jurisdictional practice, Anton has advised clients on disputes and investigations across Asia including Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand, the Philippines, India, Hong Kong, China and Taiwan.

As a litigator, he advises on a range of litigation, arbitration and contentious regulatory matters. He focuses in particular on complex cross-border disputes typically involving multiple proceedings before local courts, regulatory bodies and/or arbitration tribunals across the region.

In the corporate investigations field, Anton has comprehensive experience in commercial fraud, bribery and corruption and financial services regulatory matters. He advises banks and multinationals on both internal and regulatory driven investigations as well as on general compliance issues.
