Aysu ATILIR is an associate lawyer at ÖZEL Attorney Consultancy and admitted to the Union of Turkish Bar Associations. She has completed her LL.M. degree in Corporate and Commercial Law from Queen Mary University of London where she extensively specialized in the fields of IT law, data protection compliance, contracts law, commercial&corporate law and M&As.

Aysu ATILIR is particularly attracted to the sectors where technology plays a key role in operations. Today’s businesses are disrupted by 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 such an environment, she aims to embrace the legal requirements of digital transformation and closely follow the regulatory developments not only in Turkey but also in the US and EU.

Aysu ATILIR has a solid background which she acquired from her studies at both QMUL and Bilkent University and practical experience in an international work environment at qLegal in London where she worked collaboratively with entrepreneurs. Both have helped her to develop a comprehensive appreciation of complexities rendered within the scope of tech-related transactions and adopt qualities to draw on in a real world commercial setting.

Aysu ATILIR is currently working at Ankara Technology Development Center (Ankara TEKMER) where she plays an active role in providing all kinds of consultancy, advocacy and compliance services for startups and investors regarding their legal issues.
