Cases involving the Turkish market and/or Turkish businesses, as well as Turkish client work related to Europe, are in good hands at BODENHEIMER. We advise many Turkish clients doing business in Europe and beyond, and are able to do so in the Turkish language. Müge Erdoğmuş is admitted to practise in both Turkey and Germany and serves, alongside partners Dr Rouven F. Bodenheimer and Axel B. Herzberg, as key contacts for current and prospective clients. Leading Turkish firms frequently involve us in cross-border cases involving the Turkish market. In matters originating outside Turkey and/or of European clients doing business with some sort of Turkish flavour, we involve correspondent counsel in Turkey to deal with the local Turkish aspects of such cases, where required.
