Bora İkiler, LL.M.


Bora deals with all aspects of Turkish competition law, supporting high profile local and foreign clients to understand their competition-related rights and obligations. His advice encompasses merger control (mergers and acquisitions, and joint ventures), cartels, consultancy, distribution agreements, dominance, and competition litigation before the administrative courts. Bora’s expertise stretches from complex merger control investigations, through to advising clients during leniency applications and defenses to cartel and abuse of dominance investigations. He provides general antitrust compliance counseling and also defends his clients in competition law related litigation.

Bora has wide experience supporting clients to understand their competition law compliance obligations by way of audits and mock dawn raid sessions, as well as presenting training seminars and developing workplace policies. He regularly supports clients with vertically integrated business models to meet their competition compliance obligations, as well as clients operating in industries which face particular competition law obstacles, such as cement.

He works closely with clients on regulatory and compliance matters, ranging from drafting company policies through to checking current compliance and ensuring applications are in line with internal policies or legislation. Bora often advises clients on practical approaches to addressing non-compliant situations and avoiding such circumstances in the future.

Bora’s work covers a wide range of industries, including beverages, banking, health, cement, automotive, retail, cosmetics, ticketing, as well as broadcasting.

Bora regularly publishes articles about competition law and regulatory compliance related matters.  He is involved in developing ethics and integrity guidance materials for TEİD, as well as being involved with the IBA’s committees for antitrust and anti-corruption.
