Who's Who Legal Arbitration: Lawyers

Utku Cosar is a partner at Cosar Avukatlik Burosu, specialising in commercial and investment arbitration. Ms Cosar represents public and private clients in international arbitration with extensive experience involving energy, construction and post-M&A disputes.

Her experience includes representing a private pension fund in an ICC arbitration involving a post-acquisition dispute and representing the government of Turkey in three ICSID arbitrations involving energy disputes. Other experience includes advising a leading natural gas company in an ICC dispute involving damages claims and representation of an energy company in an ICC arbitration involving a construction dispute. In recent years, she has represented clients in four other international arbitration cases before the ICC involving damages claims, each in excess of US$100 million.

Ms Cosar has been ranked in the top tier for dispute resolution lawyers in Turkey by Chambers and Legal 500 for the past 10 consecutive years. She serves on the editorial boards of the Dispute Resolution International Journal (IBA) and the ICC Dispute Resolution Journal, and she regularly contributes to publications and speaks at conferences regarding international arbitration.

She received two LLM degrees from Georgetown University in master of laws and international legal studies, and is admitted to practise in New York and Turkey. Ms Cosar is fluent in English and Turkish.
