Chadbourne’s strong track record in the Turkish market is evidenced both by the range of transactions we have counseled on and the range of clients we have represented. We have been involved in inbound/outbound transactions, mergers and acquisitions, capital markets transactions, privatizations, restructurings, corporate financings, project financings, as well as other corporate matters and arbitrations in Turkey. In these transactions, our clients have ranged in size from multinational corporations to small and mid-sized companies establishing or expanding their operations. Our clients encompass the infrastructure, energy, financial services, telecommunications, healthcare, real estate, consumer goods, natural resources, textile, and construction industries.

In September 2011, we opened an office in Istanbul, which concentrates on mergers and acquisitions, private equity, capital markets, corporate finance, and project finance. The lawyers in our Istanbul office have significant experience in a variety of sectors in Turkey, with special focus on the energy, healthcare and financial services sectors. Our Istanbul office is headed by Managing Partner Ayse Yuksel, who has built and led the firm's Turkey/MENA corporate practice from its offices in London, New York and Dubai.
