What the team is known for As the Turkish affiliate of Baker McKenzie, Esin Attorney Partnership offers clients extensive international capabilities. In Turkey, the firm has built up a strong full-service model, providing multi-jurisdictional support to clients on a broad scope of contentious and non-contentious mandates. Clients benefit from the team's access to Baker McKenzie's vast global network, and the team in Turkey is highly attuned to the needs of overseas clients with interests in the jurisdiction.

From a transactional perspective, the firm is considered to be one of the strongest M&A teams in Turkey. It advises both homegrown clients and international players on a spectrum of inbound and outbound deals, often playing a co-ordinating role on projects. Alongside its corporate strength, the team boasts strong financing capabilities, as well as sector-specific knowledge in areas such as real estate and TMT. The firm's dispute resolution group is also proficient in handling cross-border proceedings, acting for a diverse client base in both cross-border litigation and international arbitration.

Strengths"I believe that Esin Attorney Partnership is the go-to firm when it comes to international work and cross-border transactions. They work with other Baker McKenzie offices seamlessly and manage the project very diligently. Being able to communicate in Turkish for a cross-border deal is a great advantage to us," one client enthuses.
