The firm

BTS & Partners is the leading law firm in the sectors where technology plays a key role in operations. Over the last 15 years, the vision of BTS & Partners has been to assist its clients with navigating their way through their business’ technological transformation. Today’s businesses are disrupted by the digital technologies and each economic actor in the global economy should be adopting digital technologies’ benefits and realities into their current operations and outlook. In order to achieve its vision, BTS & Partners is closely following the regulatory developments not only in Turkey, but also the EU and the US.

BTS & Partners is the only law firm that has specific expertise and experience in the field of technology in Turkey, and is the market leader on regulations on several matters in this regard. This vision provides an advantage which allows BTS & Partners to differentiate its services from other law firms. In addition to its legal activities, the firm’s founding partners Yasin Beceni and Tugrul Sevim are actively working with NGOs and also teaching at universities. Alongside its close following of the international regulatory developments, such NGO and academic activities enables BTS & Partners to have an awareness level of the upcoming regulations in Turkey and allows the firm to quickly adapt its service scale to meet the needs of clients under the new regulatory regime. BTS & Partners is flexible about diversifying its services to create innovative service lines for its clients.

Considering that technology plays a key role in almost every sector, the clientele scale of BTS & Partners has increased enormously in the last three years and the demands of clients have expanded to practice areas other than ICT and regulatory advice. In this respect, BTS & Partners has immediately adapted its team to one that is eligible to provide services in such areas and has delivered the high-quality standards its clients are accustomed to receiving in ICT and regulatory advice. The firm hired a strong employment and corporate law team led by a partner in early 2015, and such an act has scaled the profile of BTS & Partners with its clients and facilitated more work by qualifying the firm as one of general practice – not just a boutique firm working in a sophisticated area of law.

Areas of practice

BTS & Partners focuses on providing solution-oriented and advocacy-led legal services driven by the needs of its clients. It draws upon considerable expertise to meet clients’ needs, particularly regarding emerging areas of law, with an academic approach and focus on the information and communication technologies (ICT) and telecommunications sector.

BTS & Partners’ cutting-edge, innovative vision and client-focused services have led to a proven track record of going beyond the conventional approach to maximise the success of its clients. Always striving to create essential added value, BTS & Partners has introduced new legal methodologies for preventive and proactive legal services in the IT and telecommunications sector, IP-driven companies, and investors in Turkey. One of the firm’s key assets is its ability to provide clients with strategic and legal decision-making support. The firm attributes great importance to understanding its clients’ business and strategic objectives, creating strategies tailored to achieve clients’ goals, and providing bespoke guidance throughout the execution and implementation phases of those strategies.

By leveraging its sector-specific know-how, BTS & Partners has evolved into a specialised technology law firm with a prestigious client portfolio that includes international governments, Fortune 500 companies, non-governmental organisations and expanding domestic clients in the Turkish ICT sector.
