Simply, we are everywhere you want us to be. While we are based in Istanbul, Turkey, we are very active around the world with desk offices in key jurisdictions around Europe, the Middle East, Africa, South America, and the United States. Our clients remark upon the benefits they enjoy working with a law firm that is large enough to provide legal services in every corner of Turkey and every key jurisdiction around the world, yet small enough to give them the personal attention they deserve.
We know what is required to create, enhance and protect real value for our clients. To that end, we are committed to maintaining the highest level of personal service and professionalism. We strive to apply these standards to everything we do, whether for local or foreign investors or entrepreneurs. Our worldwide experience and local expertise, combined with a reach to the key people around the world, enable us to get the results and to unlock more opportunities for our clients. We are confident about our legal knowledge not only because we know and follow closely the laws and regulations relating to our clients’ businesses but we also know the industry’s commercial and regulatory realities, the politics, and the people.
Our top priority has never changed since our foundation: The satisfaction of our clients through providing quality services at a fair cost.
To achieve that we are committed to:
Our story began in 2007 when our founding partner, Omer Kesikli, founded Kesikli Law Firm as a sole practitioner. The underlying motivation behind this modest venture was to create a difference in the lives of individuals and businesses by responding to their ever-changing legal needs in an efficient and innovative way, not only by solving the problems they face and but also by anticipating them so that they can be avoided. This proactive approach, coupled with legal expertise enabled us to become one of the leading law firms in Turkey.
The international scope of our work has also attracted interest from other law firms across the globe, seeking closer cooperation with us. We are now a well-established firm with desk offices in many key jurisdictions around the world. We are pleased to help our clients navigate through the challenges of an increasingly complex world.
We combine our legal, technical and commercial knowledge with hands-on experience to deliver exceptional outcomes in the most efficient way possible. After listening to you and analyzing your legal needs, we utilize our experiences and resources to effectively advise you of your options so that we can best position you to get the results you desire.
What sets us apart from the competition is our consistency in providing solutions & results that exceed our clients’ expectations.
