Within: Dispute resolution

Baker & McKenzie, S.C. manages high-profile cases and regionally the firm is recognised for its ‘excellent’ arbitration practice. The local team played an integral part in the firm’s successful multimillion-dollar ICSID investment arbitration victory against the Republic of Venezuela. The team has faced the government in other cases as well, for instance in ad hoc investment arbitration proceedings on behalf of the Heemsen family and concerning land expropriated by the Ministry of Transport and Communications. Practice head Eugenio Hernández-Bretón also leads the firm’s energy and natural resources department and is therefore the key contact for clients from the oil sector, such as Total and PetroSaudi.

  • The New Turkish Code of Obligations: Important Changes for Leases of Residential & Business Premises

    For decades, the primary Turkish laws governing leases of residential and business premises have been the Law on Leasing Real Property dated May 27, 1955 (the “Lease Law”) and the Turkish Code of Obligations No. 818 dated April 22, 1926 (the “Obligations Code”). Both of these laws, however, will be repealed and replaced with the new Turkish Code of Obligations No. 6098 dated January 11, 2011 (the “New Obligations Code”), which will enter into force on July 7, 2012.
