Litigation & Dispute Resolution Alternative Dispute Resolution

Cetinkaya is a leader in Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) in Turkey. We frequently take part in arbitrations, voluntary or obligatory mediations and are called upon to take part in dispute avoidance boards. Our sectoral expertise in construction, infrastructure, media and technology put us in a unique position in the ADR process owing to our in-depth understanding of these industries.

Among ADR methods, arbitration is one of the pillars of our dispute practice. We are active in domestic and international arbitration and represent clients in connection with commercial and investment arbitrations.

We have experience in arbitrations handled under the rules of:

  • International Chamber of Commerce (ICC)
  • London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA)
  • United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL)
  • International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID).

In addition to our experience in the world’s leading ADR and arbitration institutions, we are experienced in un-administered or ad hoc arbitrations and mediations in Turkey.

Our areas of work include:

  • Dispute prevention
  • Dispute management
  • Merit reviews
  • Fact-finding
  • Adjudication
  • Mediation
  • Mini-trials
  • Negotiation
  • DAB
  • DRB
  • Risk management.

When it comes to the enforcement of arbitral awards in Turkey, we have considerable experience in representing both claimants and defendants, excelling in the use and exercise of injunctions and interpretation of New York Convention Rules.
