Aykut Bakırcı advises domestic and international clients on a wide-range of Turkish law matters, with a particular focus on energy, regulatory aspects, privatisation and administration.
Aykut Bakırcı started his career as a legal practitioner in 1990. From 1996 until 2006 he was employed as counsel in the legal department of the Turkish Privatisation Administration. From 2006 until 2010 he served as the Head of Legal of the Turkish Privatisation Administration. During his time at the Privatisation Administration, Aykut Bakırcı was engaged in drafting and amending various primary and secondary legislation, most notably the electricity, natural gas, infrastructure and national lottery legislation. He also acted as a draftsperson for tender specifications in respect of the sale of state assets and entities. In addition, Aykut Bakırcı was a key figure in organising tenders for the privatisation of state assets and entities and bringing such tenders to a successful completion. This also entailed that he negotiated transfer of operational rights agreements with successful bidders and their financiers and attended hearings on behalf of the Privatisation Administration before the Council of State (i.e. the Turkish Supreme Administrative Court) for the setting aside of any judicial challenges to such privatisations.
