Energy & Climate Change

Turkey

A key driver of the global economy, the energy sector is affected by geopolitical, economic and regulatory pressures. You require advisors who understand your industry and work with leaders of energy companies, regulators, governments, industry bodies and investors on the cutting edge of commercial, regulatory and risk issues in the sector. Based across 15 jurisdictions in emerging Europe, we have been active in the region since the beginning of the privatisation and liberalisation of the energy sector across the region. We have helped to shape the sector by advising on the most high-profile and ground-breaking projects and transactions over many years.

The CMS Turkey team comprises a unique mix of specialist energy lawyers familiar with both Turkish and international practice within the energy sector. The team has valuable specialist knowledge of the Turkish energy market, having advised for example on the liberalisation of the Turkish electricity market, which means you have access to first-hand advice on any regulatory issues which may arise. 

Our multinational team has worked on many high profile energy projects and provided advice to both local and international energy players, meaning we are ideally placed to advise both local and international investors on their energy investments in Turkey.

Our dedicated energy lawyers work in every part of the sector, including upstream and downstream oil & gas, electricity, nuclear and renewables. Whether you are a NOC, IOC, independent, electricity company, investor, government or financial institution, we have the energy specialists to meet all your strategic challenges globally.
