10 TURKEY/ TÜRKIYE arbitrator’s end. Anyone with sufficient experience can act as arbitrator. To be entrusted with such responsibility and to be vested with such authority always intrigued me. Needless to say, the arbitral award duly rendered has the same binding effect and the enforceability with a domestic court decision. I call arbitration ‘the new normal’, or dare I say, ‘contemporary way of adjudication’. What are you most excited to be working on at the moment? There are couple of things. I contributed to an book on arbitration and it is on its way. I just came from Kigali (Rwanda) where I was invited to speak and I gave a speech on energy investment dipsutes during the OHADA Annual Conference hosted by FIPROD-ERSUMA. My next destination will hopefully be in Lome (Togo) where I am also invited to share my experience and knowledge in arbitration. I am currently working on an energy arbitration article to be published in an exquisite arbitration magazine. My posts will soon be published on the Kluwer Arbitration Blog. Also, I will be passing the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators Fellowship Assessment to become an FCIArb. The arbitration cases where I act as party counsel at the moment thrill me, as I am experiencing new aspects and concepts each and every day. What figures in the legal sector would you count as your greatest inspirations? All these years, my father Cemal Sedat Dayıoğlu has been my mentor in every sense. Once I became a lawyer I started to look up to him even more, as he is a pure doyen in our profession. I would also like to mention my grandfathers. Both of them were lawyers. My grandfather from my father’s “All these years, my father Cemal Sedat Dayıoğlu has been my mentor in every sense.” Lawyer Monthly Legal Awards 2022
