    We have adopted the principle of developing the litigation and consultancy sides equally and have given importance to this balance in order for each side to benefit each other. With this service mentality, in 8 years, we have reached the number of corporate clients exceeding 75, with whom we are currently cooperating. Having started with five corporate clients in the beginning, we believe that our positive reputation in the sector and the high level of contentedness of our clients have brought us this outstanding success. We mainly prefer to establish long-term and broad-scaled co-operations rather than individual projects or lawsuits.

    Evaluation of Saturday in the Use of Annual Leave

    Annual paid leave is a right to rest that derives its source from the Constitution and its principles are regulated in the Labor Code and the Regulation on Annual Paid Leave. In Article 53 of the Labor Code, the conditions for entitlement to annual leave and the minimum number of days are determined, and despite the regulation based on the code, there are still problems that confront the employee and the employer in practice and are subject to disputes. In practice, it is seen that Saturdays are also counted as annual leave days and this issue will be examined in this article.

    Evaluation of the Geographical Limitation Requirement of the Prohibition of Competition Clause in the Light of the Decisions of the Court of Cassation

    The Court of Cassation, especially in the recent period, has significantly valued Article 445/2 of the TCO, and in order to ensure the balance of interests that the legislator aims to achieve, the non-competition clauses in the agreements are adjusted in terms of duration and limitations according to the circumstances of the particular case, the gain and potential danger possibilities of the parties. Considering the recent and contradictory decisions of the same chamber, we would like to express that we strongly believe that it is beneficial to agree on non-competition clauses in accordance with Articles 444 and 445 of the TCO from the outset.
