With over 25 years’ experience in emerging Europe, we are the preferred M&A adviser to corporates and financial institutions, and have topped the regional deal tables by volume for a number of consecutive years. With domestic experts and English law practitioners on the ground in 15 offices across the region, we can mobilise international specialist teams quickly to manage your cross-border transactions.

The CMS Turkiye team includes not only very experienced Turkish lawyers but also international transactional lawyers, including both UK and US qualified lawyers, who have worked extensively on Turkiye-related deals for many years. Over the years, we have developed a deep understanding of how to structure and complete transactions in and relating to Turkiye, with a particular focus on cross border and international transactions. 

We add value by thinking and acting beyond our traditional role to secure the competitive edge you need in an ever-changing business environment. Whether a global multinational group or a dynamic domestic business, we can deliver a tailored, commercial, cost effective solution for you, covering areas such as M&A, private equity, equity capital markets, outsourcing, group restructuring and privatisations. 

Our cross-border teams include experts in sectors such as banking, consumer products, energy, infrastructure, insurance, lifesciences, real estate and construction, technology and media. This means we can save time and money by understanding your specific issues, providing advice within context and pinpointing the commercial issues and risks in your transaction.
