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!

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.
