What the team is known for A highly capable full-service offering in Turkey, Kolcuoğlu Demirkan Koçaklı is increasingly establishing itself on the international stage. Formed in 2010, the team offers cross-border support to clients in both transactional and contentious areas of law, and is able to handle a combination of inbound and outbound work. The firm services the multi-jurisdictional needs of its clientele primarily through the connections it establishes with overseas practices, and the team is frequently sought out to advise on Turkish law in an international context. Clients seeking advice in relation to Germany are particularly well served by the firm's German desk, and the team maintains close ties to firms in the jurisdiction.

The firm's M&A practitioners are accustomed to working on cross-border deals, including the representation of homegrown entities expanding into overseas jurisdictions. The team also demonstrates multi-jurisdictional financing capabilities, acting for international lenders on a range of cross-border banking transactions. Members of the team also demonstrate a strong track record of advising on infrastructure and energy projects that are international in scope. Clients facing contentious proceedings that are multi-jurisdictional can also look to the firm's dispute resolution team, which is known to act for Turkish clients on overseas matters.

Strengths One client reports: "They were recommended by five or six panel firms in Europe we use, none of which had offices in Turkey. Their communication is very clear – it is sometimes a challenge when you're in foreign jurisdictions, but their advice is expressed very well in English, the team is very responsive and the advice has been quite pragmatic."

Another overseas client says: "They provided a lot of information on the Turkish market because we did not have much experience. They were very responsive and their English was excellent. They were very helpful in getting the process done."
