We are a one-stop shop. Specialist capital markets, antitrust, banking & finance, real estate, data privacy and regulatory practices, among others, allow us to offer comprehensive solutions to our clients. This multi-disciplinary approach ensures we assemble the right lawyers for every project so that every eventuality is covered. If required, our partners who are deeply rooted in the local market will pull the best experts from all areas into a project.

Founding and co-managing partners Baran Gen and Ebru Temizer are both exemplary female figures of the Turkish law firm scene and they both have been influential advocates for women empowerment throughout their +20-year careers. This is reflected at our female-led firm where Diversity & Inclusion is not just a buzz word but the foundation of our firm.



Our firm is not a kingdom or queendom. Our partners strive to establish a collegial culture based on horizontal hierarchy. All lawyers are expected to express themselves and their views are taken seriously by the team leaders.  Due to our equity structure, all partners have shared interest in each client matter, therefore know how sharing is in the core of our functioning.
