Gurulkan & Çakır is an approachable, boutique law firm providing extensive legal services and guidance to international and domestic clients particularly in corporate and commercial matters.
The firm is primarily based in the city of Istanbul, and has strong presence in the Balkans and the Middle East. As we see Istanbul as a unique gateway between the East and the West, we desire to become a leading law firm in the region and to be a distinguished address for enterprises wishing to reach out to new markets in such a geography where lucrative business opportunities never end.
The main focus of our practice is on banking and finance, corporate law, commercial law, investment, international trade and customs, labor, maritime law, insurance and transport.
Our team has strong motivation to make local legal regulations accessible, through our publications, to expatriates and all other foreigners who have interest in Turkish law.
We believe it is important to understand and communicate the broader issues in the world of finance, economy and the law. That is why we have scheduled a development programme – an ongoing, systematic core process that will empower us to test ourselves against the lawyers from outside jurisdictions, particularly from the UK and the US, to ensure we are at the cutting edge of the developments in the legal profession.
We are well aware of the fact that business is increasingly conducted across multiple jurisdictions. As an independent law firm, we work with respected colleagues and other advisers from many jurisdictions. We attach great importance to establishing cooperation with pre-eminent law firms and working in conjunction with our clients' other professional advisers to produce the best possible outcomes.
All of our lawyers are capable of providing services in English. The firm is an active member of various international and domestic business and legal communities.
