Our other areas of specialty where IP protection and counterfeiting are particular concerns in Turkey include fashion, luxury products, cosmetics, sporting goods, stationery, electronics, automobile, online games and telecommunication. We use our experience in these industries and strategically apply them to the issues faced in other industries.

Our team excels at more complex and contentious IP matters and combines its broad experience and skill sets with the creativity and tenacity required in this tricky market in the most responsive and effective manner. We do not limit our knowledge to local law and practice; we also closely follow IP practice, developments and case law worldwide. This drive for constant improvement is making a positive impact in the marketplace.
