“Al bir kalpak giymişti al,
Al bir ata binmişti al,
‘Zafer ırak mı?’ dedim,
‘Aha!’ diyordu.”

“Red was his fur cap, red
Red was the horse he rode, red
‘Is victory far?’ I asked
‘Right here!’ he said.”

Competition (antitrust) work represents a significant portion of our work and our competition team works in close contact with all of our other practice areas.

TURUNÇ’s competition lawyers are highly experienced in all aspects of competition law matters and provide the following services, among others:

  • preventive advice
  • drafting contracts in compliance with competition law
  • preparing and submitting applications to the Competition Board for individual exemptions and negative clearances
  • making pre-merger and pre-acquisition notifications
  • training employees
  • drafting pleadings in the event of an investigation
  • litigating competition law cases

Since 1994, the year the Turkish Competition Act came into force, no client to whom we have provided preventive competition law services has ever been fined by the Turkish competition authorities. This record is of course a huge source of professional pride to us as a firm, but it also represents a very significant commercial benefit for our clients.

Our competition lawyers have authored or contributed to various publications. Please see our Publications page.
