Alexander Tonkonog will strengthen the ART DE LEX team as a partner in the Criminal Law Practice

Alexander Tonkonog has 13 years of experience with protecting the interests of clients in criminal cases of particular complexity, including economic and official cases.

Mr. Tonkonog represented one of the defendants in a well-known embezzlement case related to the construction of a large facility for the military and space industry.  He represented the interests of one of the top Sochi city administrators who had faced accusations of corruption, and the court subsequently dismissed all charges.  Mr. Tonkonog also has experience in successfully protecting individuals accused of illegal banking activities and tax evasion.

Prior to joining ART DE LEX, Alexander Tonkong worked in the investigative agencies in Moscow.  He then founded Alexander Tonkonog and Partners, which was a member of the Moscow Bar Association, and for eight years, he managed the firm. 

Alexander Tonkonog is confident that combining his “professional activity with ART DE LEX is a good opportunity to develop expertise that is aimed primarily at protecting the interests of clients.”

Dimtry Magonya, the managing partner of ART DE LEX, commented that “the firm welcomes the addition of A. Tonkonog and Partners’ practice.  The Criminal Practice team, under the leadership of Vakhtang Fedorov, continues to strengthen its position, and I am confident that, together with Alexander and his colleagues, it will be even more successful.”
