Moroğlu Arseven supports clients with all aspects of administrative procedures and actions in Turkey. We use a range of mechanisms to assist our clients to challenge administrative regulations, communiqués, decrees, guides and decisions. These include annulment actions, as well as lawsuits disputing administrative fines or seeking to obtain compensation for damage incurred due to administrative acts.
The firm provides full-scope support, ranging from risk assessments and developing negotiation or reconciliation strategies, through to commencing proceedings, drafting petitions, dealing with government bodies and appearing in administrative courts. Our support includes considering the legal, business and reputational risks which our clients face, aiming to minimise business-disruption and unnecessary costs or risks.
The firm has significant experience representing clients regarding their regulatory relations during administrative processes. Our expertise is particularly valuable to international clients, assisting them to understand and navigate these complicated procedures. Similarly, understanding procedural steps and adhering to strict timelines are particularly crucial in this context. Moroğlu Arseven’s considerable experience with local administrative systems enables the firm to proactively advise clients about what to expect, supporting them to prepare for these steps in advance.
Moroğlu Arseven often adopts a multi-discipline approach to support clients during administrative disputes, drawing together topic experts from a range of practice areas which are relevant to a client’s circumstances, such as regulatory compliance, licensing, customs, energy, capital markets and other areas. Contentious administrative issues often involve a high level of technical details.
Supporting clients with administrative procedures and actions will often form one aspect of the broader strategy which we develop to deal with an issue or conflict. Bringing an action before the administrative courts will not automatically suspend the related administrative act from occurring. Therefore, other mechanisms may also be required to protect our clients’ interests, such as seeking injunctions or judgments which suspend the underlying administrative act.
