Starting from 1983, there was a rapid increase in the foreign investment flow to Turkey, as a result of which the need for the legal advisory services of an international standard became more and more important for the global business community which was planning to invest in Turkey. Hidayetoğlu Partners aims to be among the pioneer law firms to respond to such need with its 60 years of history. The firm is now advising a high level clientele of foreign and local corporations on a wide range of areas including joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, energy and infrastructure projects, license and technology transfers and other foreign investments, international commercial arbitration, banking law, securities and finance and general corporate matters as well as representing several foreign and local corporations through its Litigation Department. As a result of the
co-operation of the partners of the firm with the leading law firms of the world in numerous projects in the past, Hidayetoğlu Partners has close connections
with the leading law firms in London, New York, Paris and Frankfurt which equip the firm with a distinct advantage in providing solutions to the problems involving multi-juris- dictional aspects. Hidayetoğlu Partners has offices in London and Ankara. The partners of Hidayetoğlu Partners merge the previous experience of working both as in-house counsel in huge international corporations and senior lawyers in leading law firms as well as high level bureaucrats which enables the firm to better understand the needs of the corporations and provide them with business-oriented legal advice both in İstanbul and Ankara.
