Corporate and commercial litigation are specialities for Moroğlu Arseven, along with related debt collection and enforcement processes. We work closely with clients to understand their business objectives and industry dynamics. Such knowledge enables us to determine whether litigation is the most cost and time-effective alternative for resolving a specific dispute. Our support includes considering the legal, business and reputational risks which our clients face, aiming to minimise business-disruption and unnecessary costs or risks. Our clients’ disputes typically involve complex cross-border legal questions, high values, pose heavy consequences, or involve recognising and enforcing foreign court judgments. We routinely integrate litigation-related advice into our corporate and commercial transactional support, to deal with arguments before they even arise.
We provide clients with strategic guidance on how to minimise litigation risk and even avoid litigation together, such as how best to manage evolving disputes, or establish and use alternative dispute resolution mechanisms. Where litigation is unavoidable or presents the best alternative, our specialist litigation team is involved from an early stage, to develop tailored strategies which aim to protect clients’ assets and recoup losses or damages. As a conflict escalates, our specialists provide pragmatic risk assessments, responsive guidance on litigation strategy, as well as advice on settlement options which may be available at any given stage.
We often adopt a multi-discipline approach to support clients during litigation, drawing together experts in specific practice areas such as corporate, employment, tax, competition and other areas relevant to a given dispute. We contribute innovative and reality-based advice, supporting all parties to move on from the dispute in a cost-efficient manner, with the least damage possible in the circumstances.
Moroğlu Arseven is particularly strong in litigation related to distribution and agency issues. Accordingly, we advise and represent a wide array of global manufacturers or their local distributors and agents on an ongoing basis. These clients represent a range of industries and many points of view on the various disputes, including clients seeking to terminate distribution agreements, as well as involved in portfolio compensation disputes.
