Competition & Regulation
Competition and Regulation is a highly dynamic field and the applicable rules and legal and economic reasoning behind the decisions of government authorities are in constant change.
The team has a solid grasp of regulatory rules in broad range of regulated sectors including banking, energy, mining, transport, manufacturing and services. Thanks to our deep diving knowledge in the field and thorough understanding of the economic and legal explanations, we will come up with the most creative and convincing arguments for the highly important merger and acquisition notifications, exemption filings and investigations launched under article 4 and 6 of the Competition Law.
To best assist clients, our Competition and Regulation team draws on the resources of leading law firms and microeconomic consulting firms in the world, actively participate in international conferences, and regularly publish scholarly articles, news and updates about the developments in Turkey.
Our accomplishments on behalf of clients across industries include:
obtaining timely clearance from Turkish Competition Authority, for highly complex mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures;
the successful defense of major clients in monopolization claims and other related disputes;
guiding companies through antitrust investigations and court procedures for claims including cartel, price-fixing, dominance, parallel trade and vertical restraints issues;
coordinating strategies in leniency applications and cartel investigations; and
establishing and maintaining antitrust compliance programs, including audits, dawn raid training, in-house counsel workshops and in-person and online compliance training.
