We advise both Turkish companies and international corporations doing business in Turkey. We first seek to understand each organisation’s business model and long-term goals before advising on how to fit these within the Turkish legal and financial framework in the best way.

Our advice spans a broad range of corporate and commercial matters including mergers and acquisitions, share purchase agreements and securities, as well as obtaining approval of the relevant Turkish authorities.
