Professor Yeginsu is a barrister practicing from 4 New Square Chambers in Lincoln's Inn, London, where his work is in commercial litigation, international commercial and investment arbitration, public international law, as well as administrative and human rights law. He also sits as an arbitrator.
Consistently ranked as outstanding by Chambers Global, Chambers UK (Bar), and Legal 500 for his work in international arbitration, commercial litigation, and administrative law, Professor Yeginsu has recently been referred to as "a first-class international advocate [...] in a class of his own" (Chambers Global, 2017) and recognised as one of ten "Stars" practicing at the London Bar by Legal Week Magazine where he was identified as possibly one of "the Bar's true polymaths [...] able to advocate in a wide variety of legal areas, with seemingly effortless fluency".
Alongside commercial and investment arbitrations (under the ICSID, LCIA, ICC, LMAA and CIARB Rules), Professor Yeginsu has appeared as counsel in over 20 cases in the English Court of Appeal, UK Supreme Court, and European Court of Human Rights. He has also acted as co-counsel in proceedings before the ECOWAS Community Court of Justice, the Federal Court of Malaysia, the Turkish Constitutional Court, and the Supreme Court of the Gambia.
Professor Yeginsu is a Global Freedom of Expression Expert at Columbia University, guest lecturer on investment and commercial arbitration at Harvard Law School, and Member of the Investment Treaty Forum at the British Institute of International and Comparative Law.
