Expert Assistance in Company Formation in Turkey

Are you planning to establish a company in Turkey? Our expert corporate lawyers can guide you through the company formation process, ensuring compliance with all legal requirements.

Joint-Stock Companies

A joint-stock company is a corporation with a specified capital divided into shares. It’s an ideal choice for investors aiming to go public in the future, participate in government tenders, or operate in sectors requiring licenses. As a foreign investor, you can own 100% of the shares, and you don’t even need to visit Turkey for company formation. We handle the entire process remotely.

Limited Liability Companies (LLC)

An LLC is a flexible business entity with fast decision-making mechanisms. It’s the most preferred commercial entity in Turkey and is equally favorable for foreign investors. Like joint-stock companies, foreign investors can own 100% of the shares in an LLC.

Free Zone Company Formation

Establishing a company in a Free Zone in Turkey brings numerous tax advantages. It’s an excellent opportunity for investors planning to produce and export goods. Our legal team can guide you through the process of Free Zone company formation, ensuring you reap the maximum benefits.

Legal Support for Mergers and Acquisitions

Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) are significant business transactions that require expert legal guidance. Our attorneys provide comprehensive legal support throughout the M&A process, from due diligence to contract drafting and negotiation.

Liquidation of Companies in Turkey

Liquidation is a complex process involving the dissolution of a company and the distribution of assets to claimants. Our experienced attorneys can guide you through the liquidation process, ensuring compliance with local laws and regulations.

Branch and Liaison Office Establishment

Foreign-based companies can establish a Turkish branch where they primarily conduct business in Turkey. Our team can assist with the legal processes involved, ensuring a smooth establishment of your branch or liaison office in Turkey.
