Turkey Desk

We support both Turkish companies that want to invest in Germany and Europe as well as German and international companies in their investments in Turkey.

For this reason, our Turkey Desk comprises not only lawyers who have lived for many years in Turkey or regularly spend time in Turkey on business, but also German-Turkish colleagues who naturally speak fluent Turkish. Opening our office in Istanbul has enabled us to provide even closer support to our German and our Turkish clients locally.

We are well aware of the various cultural, political and regulatory questions our Turkish clients have when entering the German market. Building on our extensive experience in the Turkish cultural environment, we assist companies entering the Turkish market and help them minimize their investment risk.
