International Construction Law


Akinci Law Office is one of the leading construction law firms in Turkey, servicing clients’ needs throughout Turkey and the region.

Since its formation in 1984, Akinci has been helping its construction clients by drafting agreements, finding solutions to their operational issues, settling disputes and, when arbitration is necessary, winning complex arbitration cases. Our goal is to assist our clients throughout the entire construction process, in a timely and cost effective manner by managing claims, disputes and negotiations efficiently.

Although we assist clients at all phases of construction, we are just as active and effective when the matter comes to arbitration.

We, individually and as a law firm, have been involved in nearly all the construction arbitrations that have arisen involving Turkish companies. Accordingly, we have unmatched experience in serving as counsel in construction arbitration.

Akinci prides itself as a leading advisor in the field of risk management for the construction industry, and has presented numerous conferences on this topic.

Akinci has a multi-disciplinary team including lawyers with construction, real state, employment, litigation, insurance, commercial/trade, investment, transportation and environmental law expertise. Our team includes an American lawyer, a British barristers/solicitor, a Russian lawyer, a specialist construction claims engineer and an accredited mediator. Over the years, Akinci has achieved great success while representing clients in every type of construction project, by resolving disputes arising from moderately complex projects to the most highly complex and large-scale projects in both the public and private sectors.

Our team is able to offer quality consultancy services to construction companies as early as the project tender stages and through the end of guarantee periods. Our dedicated team is experienced in solving problems early on, so as to avoid expensive and time consuming litigation in the future.
