The firm

Mutlu Law Firm was founded in February 2002 by experienced lawyers who worked in the law department of the Kuwait Turkish Participation Bank Incorporation (a subsidiary of the Kuwait Finance House) as chief legal counsel and legal advisers since 1990. Mutlu Law Firm is composed of teams of experts in all areas of banking, Islamic finance, corporate, real estate transactions, joint ventures and construction areas, and litigation services for over 20 years.

Mutlu Law Firm is the second law firm in Istanbul and the eighth one throughout Turkey that was established in Article 44 of the law no.1136 after the recent amendments which allow lawyers to establish corporate legal entities.

Areas of practice

Banking and Islamic finance: since 2002, the firm has been providing a full package legal service to Kuveyt Turk Kat?l?m Bankas? A.S. (one of the participation banks in Turkey).

The main objective of the consultation service is to determine and prevent disputes that may occur in the future, before the court process. In this context Mutlu Law Firm, which is composed of attorneys that have provided consultation services for ten years in several law fields, provides high quality legal services.

Agreements: the purpose of minimising or removing clients’ legal risks faced in daily life and/or clients’ commercial activities can be achieved by well-drafted agreements that provide the most efficient legal protection. While a well-drafted contract minimises the risk of legal action between sides, it also takes part in resolving the possible disputes between such parties. Consequently, contracting clients’ legal transactions allows clients to safely conduct these transactions and minimise the probability of encountering legal problems in the future. Mutlu Law Firm is composed of experts in contract law and provides the necessary legal assistance related to drafting contracts and making them appropriate for law and the benefits of the client.

Collateral: assuring clients’ rights and claims arising out of legal relations and transactions is one of the means for minimising clients’ legal risks. Mutlu Law Firm has enough experience and knowledge (including fields necessitating competence such as mortgage, pledge on commercial entities) in assuring the right and claim.

Dispute resolving services: litigation, pro and con legal actions are pursued and concluded on time when a legal dispute occurs in clients’ personal and business dealings. Mutlu Law Firm serves in all kinds of legal actions with its competent attorneys.
