What Is Arbitration?

Arbitration is one of the alternative dispute resolution methods. Decisively, the parties must determine an arbitrator among themselves for a particular dispute and wait for the dispute to be resolved by the arbitrators.

In addition, arbitrators are also determined in some cases according to the will of the parties, in some cases outside of their will. The number of arbitrator consists of 3 people, unless otherwise agreed, and the parties can determine the number of arbitrator, provided that it is an odd number, if they wish.

Arbitration is one of the institutions that is rapidly growing in popularity today. There's more than one reason it's so popular. At the beginning of these reasons, this path is fast and satisfactory by the parties compared to the state courts. In this context, given the rapid functioning of commercial life, the dispute is resolved satisfactorily within months or even weeks by arbitration. A serious advantage arises, especially if the process is followed by an international arbitration lawyer.

What Is International Arbitration?

Regulations have been introduced in the relevant law for arbitrations to be held in the National Area. However, due to the intensity of international trade, the International Arbitration Law No. 4686 was adopted to regulate international arbitration. According to the relevant law, it finds an area of application in disputes that have a foreign element and where the place of arbitration is determined as Turkey, or in cases where Turkey is selected by the parties.

It is important to note that for arbitration proceedings, often the parties have the freedom to choose the law. In other words, the parties may choose Turkish law, even though they are foreign, or agree on the application of the law of another country, even if they are Turkish.

Decisions of the arbitration board are binding, but a case for cancellation can be filed in the competent district court against the decisions of the arbitration board. In all these processes, the international arbitration lawyer creates instant solutions related to the concrete event and follows the process.

International arbitration proceedings are divided into two;


  • The parties do not establish any procedural rules.
  • The procedural rules of Arbitration are determined by the institution.
  • Since the rules of procedure are predetermined by the institutions, the parties rely on these rules.
  • International Chamber of Commerce, Court of Arbitration for Sport, Istanbul Arbitration Center can be given as an example.

An international arbitration lawyer in Turkey  provides legal support and representation to his clients through this option, which is more preferred. As Ankara / Turkey arbitration lawyer, we provide legal support to our clients during the arbitration proceedings.


An Ad Hoc  arbitrator  regulates the arbitration procedure by referring to pre-determined rules or in accordance with rules established by the parties among themselves.

  • The arbitration procedure is determined by the parties.
  • The parties choose an ad hoc arbitration path if they have any doubts about the Institutional Arbitration rules.
  • Ad hoc arbitration may be preferred with the idea that arbitration institutions will cause additional costs.
  • Because there are sometimes delays in Institutional arbitration, the parties may prefer ad hoc arbitration.

An arbitration agreement is an agreement that the parties agree that disputes that have already occurred or may arise between them will be resolved by arbitration, regardless of the source. In accordance with this agreement, the rules of Arbitration (number of arbitrators, applicable law, etc.)) conditions can be specified. It is also worth noting that instead of an arbitration agreement being made as a separate contract, an arbitration clause may also be added to an agreed contract. In addition, another point to note is that arbitration agreements are subject to the written form requirement.

It is important to prepare the arbitration agreement in accordance with the terms of the specific event and the constantly updated legislation. Although ordinary generic contracts seem to solve the problem in the short term, they can lead to serious problems in the long term. For this reason, obtaining the assistance of an international arbitration lawyer in Turkey is the healthiest. Ankara / Turkey arbitration lawyer provides legal support to its clients in the arbitration process.



Eligibility for arbitration refers to whether the matter of dispute can be adjudicated in arbitration proceedings. But there is no requirement for eligibility for arbitration that finds application in international law. According to each country, eligibility for arbitration depends on different conditions.

According to Turkish law, disputes related to rights in kind on real estate are not conducive to arbitration. Rights in kind are rights that provide direct control over goods and can be claimed against all.

Another issue that hinders eligibility for arbitration is situations in which one of the parties does not have control over the dispute. In other words, matters that do not arise from the will of the parties cannot be resolved by arbitration. Determining what these issues are can be resolved by consulting an international arbitration lawyer. Ankara / Turkey arbitration lawyer provides legal support to its clients in the arbitration process.
