Simel Sarıalioğlu (Corporate and Commercial Law LLM, 2008) says, “I am a proud graduate of the LLM class from 2008, on Corporate and Commercial Law. My experience at QMUL, both academic and social wise, was priceless. I had the privilege to take, among others, the International Commercial Arbitration Course, taught by Prof. Julian Lew, Prof. Loukas Mistelis and Prof. Stavros Brekoulakis at the time. Even after more than 10 years, what I learned during that course still helps me in my professional life.

Currently Simel is a partner at Istanbul based Paksoy Law Firm’s dispute resolution group and she specializes in commercial arbitration, arbitration-related court proceedings and commercial litigation. She sits as arbitrator and frequently acts as counsel in arbitrations under ICC, LCIA, ISTAC and UNCITRAL rules as well as commercial litigation proceedings. She has particular experience in disputes arising from construction, telecommunication, technology, media, pharmaceuticals, manufacturing and retail sector. Simel also serves as a member of the steering committee of the Silicon Valley Arbitration and Mediation Center Young Professionals Group.
