The Firm has extensive experience in handling litigation matters before the Turkish courts, including major commercial disputes (such as sale and purchase of equipment or services), share purchase agreements and joint venture matters. We also regularly act on employment and intellectual property cases.
We act before the Council of State (Danıştay) in very high profile administrative law cases, including in sectors such as energy, tobacco and healthcare/life sciences.
We advise on and handle cases referred by foreign counsel and corporations on the recognition and enforcement of judgments and arbitral awards obtained in overseas jurisdictions before Turkish courts, including case review and advising on any issues relating to reciprocity, public order or other policy restrictions on enforceability. We also advise on bilateral investment treaty cases.
We provide investigation reporting support to multi-nationals on internal investigations in particular in the context of anti-bribery and FCPA/Bribery Act compliance issues.
Our experienced team takes into account both legal issues, appropriate dispute resolution strategies and reputational and commercial matters of interest to the client.
Our head of litigation, Ebru Temizer, is noted as a leading litigation lawyer and is praised in Chambers and Partners and Legal500 for her work in this field.
