From its establishment over a decade ago, Göksu Law’s main practice focus has always been arbitration. As a dispute resolution boutique, we are widely recognized as a leading arbitration practice of Turkey.

We have acted and frequently act in several ad hoc as well as institutional arbitrations handled by regional and global arbitral institutions. We have obtained countless favorable awards in some of the more complex ICC, ICSID, LCIA, AAA, CIETAC and DIAC arbitrations in recent years. We have also acted in local arbitrations handled by TOBB, ITOTAM and ISTAC. Whatever the venue might be, we litigate fairly but vigorously by making the best of the cards we are dealt.

All members of the Göksu team are technically trained dispute attorneys adjudicating before a wide spectrum of arbitral tribunals. We are among the forerunners of modern arbitration practice in Turkey. Our founding partner Noyan Göksu’s arbitration background spans back to more than 20 years ago when commercial arbitrations were few and far between in this jurisdiction. Noyan also worked on the first ever ICSID case involving the Republic of Turkey filed back in 2002.

The role of an arbitration counsel has increasingly become interdisciplinary over the years. We have vast experience working seamlessly with technical, financial and legal experts, as well as foreign co-counsel. Senior members of our firm also act as foreign law experts on a range of topics in international arbitrations and foreign court proceedings. 

Our arbitration practice is as one-stop-shop as it gets. With our arbitration-related litigation knowhow, we thrive to ensure finality and enforceability of arbitral awards. On the flipside, we safeguard our clients’ legitimate interests against illegitimate awards in setting aside actions or enforcement proceedings.

To complement our counsel work, some of our senior members are regularly appointed as arbitrator in construction, energy, engineering, high-tech manufacturing and international trade disputes.
