Silver - Firms: prosecution and strategy

The 1964-established Ankara Patent is one of the country’s longest-serving boutiques and has the stats to back up its sterling reputation. The team – comprised of 100 engineers, business consultants and lawyers – safeguards the interests of some 5,000-plus companies, prosecutes at least 1,000 marks on a yearly basis and regularly secures top filing positions at the TPTO. At the forefront is Gonca Adalı Başmakcı, who emphasises strategic counselling in her practice and is entrusted with the portfolios of significant players in the regulated industries. Dual-qualified as a trademark agent and an attorney at law, Korcan Dericioğlu is a favourite among Fortune 500s for his pragmatic, commercially attuned counsel. He is always up to date on the latest industry developments too, courtesy of his active involvement in numerous international associations. Rounding off the group, Ekin Karakuş Öcal oversees the legal department. She maintains a vibrant practice and frequently advises on emerging issues – most notably in the areas of geographical indications and domain names.
