Göksu Aydin Attorneys at Law

Work Department

Head of Arbitration




Noyan is a leading arbitration specialist of Turkey, with numerous high stakes cases argued before a wide spectrum of tribunals. As a member of the Istanbul Bar and a registered foreign attorney of the English Bar, he has worked for close to two decades in Turkey, the US and France with global law firms and an international court. Before establishing Göksu | Aydın, Noyan was an arbitration associate at White & Case LLP, Head of Arbitration at Turkey’s largest national firm, and more recently a partner at Pinsent Masons LLP.


Combining credentials as an ICSID arbitration advocate in Washington D.C., a commercial and construction arbitration advocate in Turkey, a Legal Officer of the ECHR in Strasbourg, as well as an arbitrator in commercial disputes, Noyan has been on both sides of the bench.


Since 2009, he has also been teaching at law schools and other academic and professional institutions as a part time arbitration professor.  His earlier academic involvement dates back to 2002-2003 where he was a research assistant at Yale University Law School to Professor Michael Reismann for the International Commercial Arbitration class.  He was recently instructed by the US Department of State as one of the three Middle-East arbitration experts as part of a weeklong training program for Iraqi and Afghan officials.  Currently, he is lecturing high ranking Turkish Transportation Ministry officials on construction arbitration, intricacies of FIDIC forms, and legal aspects of contract management.


Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners recognize Noyan as an advocate who “has an impressive track record in international arbitrations and before international courts, including the ECHR”.  He is described as someone who has the “ability to bring completely different perspectives to complex questions without losing touch with common sense and practical solutions” and who “has strong experience in infrastructure, engineering and energy litigation, and also has substantial experience representing Turkish and foreign companies in arbitration and enforcement proceedings”.


Noyan is recently recognized among one of the seven leading arbitration specialists in Turkey by the Global Arbitration Review (2018).  He is also recognized as one of the four leading construction law experts in Turkey by Who's Who Legal (2018).
