Mining & Energy Law

Özatay & Akdağ provides legal assistance to some of the most prominent mining companies in Turkey. Our services include filing applications, obtaining licenses, preparation of royalty agreements, counselling and resolution of disputes arising out of mining law by mediation, arbitration and litigation. Volatile oil prices and the depletion of traditional hydrocarbon energy sources have made an already competitive industry even more complex. At the same time energy suppliers provide essential public services, and political pressures add another layer of complexity, as governments and regulators seek energy security and demand both price stability and cleaner energy supplies.

In a market that is fast-changing and under pressure from a variety of different directions, Özatay & Akdağ provides support with experience across the energy sector. This includes providing strategic assistance encompassing the entire energy value chain from oil majors, independents, transportation companies, power generators and utilities, financial institutions and large customers. Özatay & Akdağ lawyers regularly work on energy-market reform and major project procurement.
