Legal Advise & Litigation


Legal Advise & Litigation

During the legal advice and litigation process, the attorneys have the duty to provide opinions to the clients for the solution of legal problems as well as the duty to defense within the scope of the cases in the courts. In this context, it is possible to say that there are two types of advice:  written and verbal advices. The written advice process is called as opinion, and the verbal advice process is called as consultation.

During the advices, the attorneys offer any remedies to their clients in relation to legal problems and specify the advantages and disadvantages of these benefits so that they can make the right decisions. The legal advice also prevents any disputes from turning into cases and any possible unnecessary conflicts. In this respect, the legal advice task is as important as much as the cases.

The client interviews must be conducted in a professional way to get efficiency from legal advisers. Otherwise, the processes of the clients will continue adversely and as a result of the incorrect opinions, the results will appear to the extent that will betray their trust. In this context, it is very important for attorneys to comply with the codes of conduct in their advice duties as in other professional groups.

Types of Legal Advice

Variety of conflicts causes the legal advice service to transform a various structure.  In this context, it is possible to say that, while we provide any legal advice services, we first determine the source of the problem, and then look for a solution based on the source. The main types of legal advice and the details of these types are as follows.


Mediation is one of the alternative dispute resolution methods established under the Turkish Law. Pursuant to the Mediation Law published on 22.06.2012, any innovations are conducted to allow the resolution of legal disputes. Pursuant to the Mediation Law No.6325, it is possible to resolve any disputes arisen from the private law that can be implemented freely through mediation including disputes with an element of foreignness.

Such services make it possible to find any remedies between the parties in accordance with their benefits and requirements without need to observe the imperative provisions, while the mediation process is carried out in the scope of our Legal advice service. Therefore, the attorneys of the parties inform and their mediation negotiation requests.

It is possible to call the fact that the impartial third party mediators help the parties in dispute to reach the solutions that they may agree upon mutually as mediation. The mediators make it possible to create agreement environments to facilitate information exchange between the parties and to apply to the mediators by determining any creative solutions. The parties are brought together on a collaborative basis without taking a mandatory decision on any matter. The mediators aim to bring the parties in dispute together upon the requests of the parties and to resolve the disputes by the negotiation techniques.

The solutions of the mediators are included in the scope of legal advice and bring the responsibilities of the attorney profession.

Any misunderstandings arisen from lack of communication can be eliminated, since the parties have the chance to express themselves freely in presence of the trained and expert mediators. Thus, the parties that understand each other well will have the opportunity to take their positions correctly in the future.

The main goal is to ensure that the parties mostly continue their relations and are peaceful and happy, since mediation is focus on the future. In this respect, mediation is of great importance for the legal advice.

In addition to the resolution of disputes, mediation also facilitates the negotiation processes. Governments also use the mediator policies as a method of informing the stakeholders. Mediation differs in terms of favorable disputes in each country. It is possible to list the disputes that mediation has resolved and we offer the legal advice services as follows.

Compulsory mediation, that is, the concept of mediation as a cause of action, entered into Turkish law pursuant to the Labor Courts Law No.7036. As foreseen in this regulation, the cause of action is to apply for mediation in cases filed upon the claims of employee or employer receivables and compensation and reemployment based on the law, individual or collective labor agreement. Furthermore, pursuant to the Law numbered 7251 and dated of 28.07.2020, which entered into force on 28.07.2020, the mediation institution must be applied for the cases that will be heard before the Consumer Courts pursuant to the Civil Procedure Law and, became obligatory to apply to. Pursuant to the article 5/A added to the Turkish Trade Law No.6102 (“TTL”), it is accepted as a cause of action that a mediator has been filed before filing a case on claims of receivable and compensation from commercial cases, the subject of which is the payment of a certain amount of money.

Based on the services provided by us as the case attorneys, it is possible to say that: The fields of activity of mediation vary and expand day by day. Mediation applications may be made to the mediation offices located in the Palace of Justice, where the residence addresses or workplaces of the counter parties are located.

Mediation is only one of the methods used to resolve any disputes. The fact that the mediation is cost-effective and has a flexible structure also distinguishes it from contentious ways as well as the processes are conducted secretly.

There are any disputes between the parties even if they are not suitable from time to time for mediation. In the scope of our legal advice service, we can say that the mediation has also the following alternative ways to respond to any different requirements:

  • Impartial preliminary assessment;
  • Arbitration;
  • Shuttle Diplomacy;
  • Case; and
  • Compromise.

It is not possible that everyone may conduct the mediation activities. It is necessary to have the necessary legal conditions to be able to mediate.  Mediation conditions are: to be a citizen of the Republic of Turkey, to be graduated from the Faculty of Law, to taking the necessary exams and obtain a certificate of achievement, to have an annual seniority in the profession for at least five years, not to commit a crime deliberately, and to have completed a mediation training.

Successful results have been achieved as a result of the inclusion of mediation in the legal process as a cause of action of disputes under both Trade Law and Labor Law. These successes increase day by day. However, it is thought that success will be achieved as a cause of action within the framework of the above-mentioned principles of mediation in any disputes arisen from the Consumer Law.

Also pursuant to HUAK, it is thought that most legal disputes may be resolved freely by applying to a mediation.
