schoenherr’s Istanbul office assists international clients on their investments in Turkey and advises Turkish clients on their business interests in Central and Eastern Europe. The office specialises in corporate and M&A transactions, real estate transactions, financings and commercial litigation and is particularly experienced in advising on large cross-border transactions. First set up in 2009 through a formalized cooperation between schoenherr and the Istanbul law firm Türkoğlu & Çelepçi, the office is being fully integrated into schoenherr’s regional network in 2013. The Turkey office constitutes a bridgehead into what is the firm’s single largest national market and Europe’s fastest-growing economy. The Istanbul team comprises 20 fee earners, including managing partner Levent Çelepçi. In addition, Vienna-based partner Alexander Popp supports the Istanbul team in Turkish M&A and energy projects.
