Liquidation and Liquidators

Duties of the Liquidator are designated at the related articles of the new Turkish Commercial Code. Liquidators are obliged to use appointed authorities in person and cannot transfer them to third parties. However, in the event that there is more than one liquidator, one of the liquidators may appoint the other or a third party to execute specific issues or transactions. Liquidators represent the company regarding outer relations and at courts. Plus, they may appoint lawyers, make agreements and take parts at arbitration proceedings.
