Before joining Markowitz Herbold, Anit clerked for the Honorable Morgan Christen who sits on the nation’s Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in Anchorage, Alaska. There, Anit gained invaluable experience working with some of the busiest and most notable federal appellate judges in the land.
Anit also served as Alaska Supreme Court Justice Peter Maassen’s law clerk where he conducted legal research and prepared bench memoranda for the state civil appellate caseload.
Previously, Anit was an associate at the Washington DC firm of Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson where he represented clients in large-scale civil litigation in areas such as real estate, antitrust, securities, qui tam, and international arbitration. During his time with the firm, he was a member of a small litigation team that was awarded the Outstanding Achievement Award from the Washington Lawyers’ Committee recognizing a favorable settlement in a noted employment discrimination lawsuit.
After he earned his undergraduate degree in International Relations, Anit spent two summers in Africa working first as a facilitator for Phoenix Zululand Restorative Justice in South Africa where he worked to develop and implement a three-week course in basic job and life skills for juvenile prisoners, and as an intern with the United Nations International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda during the following summer in Tanzania. During that internship, he drafted memoranda on topics including superior responsibility of military commanders and department litigation strategy.
