DESCRIPTION OF THE STEP TRAINEESHIP PROVIDER

After its establishment in 1966, the law firm's first international assignment was in the 1970s when the Firm provided legal assistance to three major Turkish contractors for their projects in Libya and Saudi Arabia. Also in the 1970s, the firm assisted one of the local banks in Turkey for its transformation from a local bank to a national bank. With this unique experience, the firm started working in the banking sector and developed its know-how in this field.

In the 1980s, with the increasing foreign capital investments in Turkey, the firm started providing legal assistance to foreign clients, who had plans to invest in Turkey, by getting them required permits and enabling them to benefit from the available incentives.

In the 1990s, the firm had the opportunity to diversify and expand its practice areas to include domestic and international arbitration. The growth in the firm's arbitration practice led us to establish a separate department for this practice, which also receives international recognition.

In the early 2000s, the firm provided legal assistance to one of the biggest multinational telecommunication companies in relation to the collection of its receivables of few billion US Dollars from a well-known Turkish group. The success of our firm in the telecommunications sector has continued with the privatisation of Türk Telekom, which was distinguished as the most successful privatization in the Central and Eastern European Region.

Also in the 2000s, the firm took part in the biggest privatisations in the country – in particular, Erdemir, Tüpraş and Türk Telekom.

In 2005, the firm established its Tax Department to give its clients tax and fiscal consultancy services.

Now, the practice continues to expand to include labour law, real estate, intellectual property, tax, protection of personal data, product liability, litigation, domestic and international arbitration, banking and finance, anti-corruption, compliance and corporate governance.
