You will join a growing office to lead and develop the practice group advising local and international banks and international financial institutions for cross border and Turkish public, private and leveraged transactions, refinancing and Islamic banking instruments.

At the firm, the practice groups work seamlessly with the other departments in developing sophisticated structures to facilitate successful and efficient completion of transactions.

You will be a savvy Partner (or a capable enthusiastic Senior Associate/Counsel at the cusp of taking partnership) who understands the new products and regulations that shape the business environment on a daily basis with respect to providing Banking & Finance legal advice.
