The Turkey office is the firm’s stronghold in the single largest national market and Europe’s fastest-growing economy. The Istanbul team comprises 20 fee earners, including managing partner Levent Çelepçi. In addition, Vienna-based partner Alexander Popp supports the Istanbul team in Turkish m&a and energy projects.
