Coronavirus: Information for clients

Dear Clients,
Dear Business Partners,
The Turkish Government has announced restrictions on public life. This is why we have cancelled all personal appointments with clients at our office in Istanbul until further notice.

Of course, we are still at your service at any time. You can reach your personal contact at CMS most reliably by e-mail, but you can also contact him/her by phone.

We sincerely hope that you and your families will get through these difficult times well!

CMS has been active in Turkey on behalf of our clients for more than two decades and opened an office in Istanbul in 2013. A team of 23 international and national lawyers focus on cross border and international transactions (M&A, private equity, capital markets and finance).

Through our association with YBK Law Firm, CMS provides our domestic and international clients with Turkish law advice across a full range of practice areas.

CMS in Tur­key
Tur­key will without a doubt play a de­cis­ive role in the Europe of to­mor­row and CMS Reich-Rohr­wig Hainz already op­er­ates in this prom­ising mar­ket. In 2006, we es­tab­lished a Turk­ish Desk in Vi­enna, which provides in­vestors from Aus­tria and oth­er European coun­tries with ex­pert ad­vice on their activ­it­ies in Tur­key. We sup­port in­ter­na­tion­al cli­ents in all is­sues of com­mer­cial law and in­tro­duce them to the par­tic­u­lar­it­ies of the Turk­ish mar­ket. To­geth­er with our CMS part­ner firms, we of­fer cli­ents a lead­ing, cross-bor­der net­work of ex­perts who provide the highest stand­ard of leg­al ad­vice es­pe­cially to in­ter­na­tion­al in­vestors. Over 3,000 leg­al ex­perts at 58 loc­a­tions across 32 coun­tries work to­geth­er to ex­change their know-how, co­oper­ate on cross­bor­der pro­jects and thus max­im­ise the suc­cess of our cli­ents.
