A law firm bridging a long tradition with new ventures.

We are a law firm based in Istanbul and we combine multiple generations of lawyers and cultures. We always look forward for new challenges where we can use our experience of 25 years in the profession and our understanding of new technologies and developments in the world.

We believe in clarity, even in complex matters...

The legal issues may be confusing and the companies and entrepreneurs may loose their way in the labyrinths of regulations. We always try a basic approach with each project: try to find the clearest way to solve the problem. What we understand of “clarity” is providing comprehensible strategies, clear legal texts and transparency thorough the whole project.

As a result of this approach, we provide a service where our clients feel comfortable with the outputs since they have a stronger grip on the matter.

…and we do it cleverly.

We know that all clients are different and the legal services are not destined to be provided always in the same style. We always try to understand the needs of our clients and provide tailor-made services for those specific needs. We assemble a team of professionals that we believe to be the best match for each client and project, not only in the professional way but also in personal level.

You will always find a team who truly understands you.

From a startup to a multinational​

We can adapt to an acquisition project of a multinational company as well as a startup company which is not established yet. There are no big or small clients for us but only different needs and problems.

This is the reason why we always offer scalability in our services to meet the highest standards that our clients ask from us. Since all clients are different, we provide a different approach for each of them and we accompany them while growing.
