Private Equity

Our firm provides full legal support to clients involved in private equity transactions, including institutional and accredited investors, as well as to businesses receiving such investments. Our firm advises clients involved in sophisticated structured acquisitions and financings, ensuring that our clients have tax efficient investment vehicles and acquisition structures which comply with complex regulatory requirements.

We support clients involved in share or asset transfers, financially distressed businesses, as well as leveraged or management buyouts, among other transactions. These transactions often cross international borders, with all the associated tax and regulatory considerations attached to such transactions.

Our support covers a range of industries, regularly involving comprehensive and focused due diligence analyses of target companies. Our advice enables investors to be fully aware of the current legal considerations surrounding the investment which may, at the date of the given transaction, potentially impact its future profitability or continued viability. Our experience-based advice further helps ensure the representations and warranties given for the target business are appropriate and understood by all parties.

We often advise clients regarding the Turkish law aspects of fund formation, capital raising and operational matters for private equity funds receiving funds from Turkish investors or private equity funds that are planned to be established in Turkey.

Our firm regularly continues its relationships with clients after the initial transaction is finalized, strengthening and protecting a company’s presence in Turkey to optimize the investment’s financial performance, being involved in further investments, or supporting execution of exit strategies.
