Michelman & Robinson Designates First-Ever Cross-Border Litigation and Arbitration Chair

June 21, 2021

Congratulations to Mehmet Baysan, who has been installed as M&R’s first-ever Chair of Cross-Border Litigation and Arbitration.

Mehmet is a partner in our New York office and among a handful of U.S. trained Turkish-speaking litigators in the nation. He represents entities, individuals, and sovereigns in cross-border disputes and arbitrations, as well as in government investigations, internal investigations involving the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and export violations, and matters concerning U.S. economic sanctions. Likewise, Baysan is sought after by foreign companies across industries—construction, infrastructure, energy, and textiles, to name a few—looking to enter the U.S. market and expand their global reach.

In his new role at the helm of M&R’s international litigation and arbitration practice, Mehmet, who was named a 2021 Northeast Trailblazer by The American Lawyer, will leverage his extraordinary skillset, client base and understanding of the business and legal landscape outside the U.S., particularly in western Asia and Southeast Europe, to manage his existing caseload more effectively and expand the firm’s reach in the countries he knows best.
