In late 90’s, the Firm served as lead legal counsel in the first real private equity investment transaction in Turkey between a local company and a private equity fund managed by a leading New York based investment bank. The Firm also provided post-investment legal services to the company and eventually assisted the financial investor in a very successful exit from that investment. We have since taken a key role in a variety of other private equity transactions in Turkey, sometimes representing the investor and other times representing the local company. Some of these transactions have involved innovative structures. Our activities have included initial investments as well as exit transactions. We believe that we are considered to be one of the key law Firms in private equity transactions in Turkey.
