The firm

TURUNÇ is a true full-service law firm, providing transactional and preventive advice, as well as dispute resolution services to clients through offices in each of the three largest cities in Turkey. Since the firm was founded in 1990, it has built and maintained its practice on a core set of ideas and values:

Excellence – TURUNÇ provides the highest quality of legal service in each practice area – it takes pride in the work it does. Much of the firm’s work is highly sophisticated and requires extensive experience and attention. In order to deliver the high level representation clients need, it hires the best talent available and provides constant training. The result is a team of technically outstanding lawyers who also understand business matters and bring commercial solutions.

Strong relationships with clients – TURUNÇ strives to build long-lasting relationships with clients. It works hard to understand clients’ businesses and the industries in which they operate. The firm’s primary goal with every client is to gain their trust, build a long-term relationship and become an integral part of their business – a team member they can turn to when in need. Some of these clients include Borsa Istanbul, Caffe Nero, Cargill, S.C. Johnson, General Motors, PETRONAS and Warburg Pincus.

Teamwork and collegiality – TURUNÇ lawyers work hard, yet they maintain a clear, well-rounded perspective. Since its founding, the firm has always maintained a friendly, open and inclusive culture in which individuality and independent thinking are highly prized. The firm’s lawyers work in collaborative, collegial teams across practice areas and offices. This has a range of tangible benefits for the firm’s clients.

Social responsibility – TURUNÇ lawyers are proud to be members of the legal profession and understand the role they can play towards achieving positive social change. Thus, the firm encourages its lawyers to do pro bono work and treats pro bono matters with the same close attention as it would any other matter.

Areas of practice

TURUNÇ’s practice encompasses all areas of corporate and commercial law, mergers and acquisitions, dispute resolution, capital markets, bank finance, competition, intellectual property and employment law across the full range of industries.

On corporate transactions, in addition to the transactional advice it provides, the firm also handles all specialised areas, such as competition, intellectual property and labour law in-house, making transactions seamless and efficient. TURUNÇ also provides full ongoing legal advice post-closing in all areas.

TURUNÇ’s corporate strength is matched by its deep experience in dispute resolution. Its team litigates several hundred cases each year in various industries across a wide range of areas. These include competition, corporate and commercial, finance, insolvency, insurance, intellectual property, real estate, administrative and tax litigation, and tort and product liability defence.
