Dispute Resolution

Lexist teams have obtained successful outcomes for clients involved in commercial disputes and investment arbitration. We represent Turkish and foreign clients in a wide range of disputes before Turkish courts and arbitration tribunals, as well as in institutional and ad hoc international arbitration proceedings.

Our Turkish litigators and arbitration counsel represent corporate, governmental, and private clients throughout the lifecycle of their disputes – from initial discussions to post-resolution enforcement and setting-aside motions to award recovery. The team also advises on regulatory and administrative investigations, which are prevalent in Turkey, particularly by the Competition Authority.

Our litigators and arbitration counsel not only have disputes experience – they are also sector specialists with invaluable insight into how their sectors operate, enabling them to solve problems with a sharp business mindset.

Practice Highlight

Lexist successfully represented the Republic of Türkiye in two major arbitration cases concluded and won before ICSID: 2021 (Cascade) and 2022 (İpek).

Disputes Legal Services

As Disputes is one of the largest practices in the law firm, Disputes is split into Litigation and Arbitration.
