Ms Akgüloğlu represents many multinational clients in Turkey. She manages major trademark portfolios of global companies and handles the prosecution and protection of their trademark assets in Turkey. Ms Akgüloğlu also manages brands active in strictly regulated sectors and therefore has a multidisciplinary legal approach in managing them. She is also active in the protection of many well-known trademarks in Turkey.

Ms Akgüloğlu’s clients come from a wide range of sectors, such as fast-moving consumer goods, technology, fashion, watches and cosmetics. She has a great understanding of the Turkish counterfeit market and frequently devises tailor-made brand protection programmes for her clients. Cooperating with investigators on identifying targets, obtaining search and seizure decisions, organising police raids, filing customs applications and conducting customs seizures, as well as training customs officers on the authenticity criteria and trade paths of her clients’ brands form a significant part of her daily practice.

Ms Akgüloğlu advises her clients in all civil and criminal litigation relating to all aspects of trademark, design and unfair competition law and regularly represents clients before all levels of courts in Turkey. Complex cases regarding termination and prevention of trademark infringements and invalidations of registered trademarks constitute the highlights of her expertise.
