ABOUT THE FIRM
Please explore this website to find out more on who we are, what we do and especially how we do it.
Our firm is founded on a set of values to which we have an unbendable commitment:
Trust. We trust our clients, but we want them to trust us as well. We do not work with any client that, we feel, does not trust us.
Integrity. We hold ourselves to the highest professional and ethical standards. Our reputation is our biggest asset, thus we particularly refrain from being the subject of any act which may impair it.
Accountability. As an immediate consequence of integrity, we are accountable. It is a firm policy that we report to our clients before we are requested to do so.
Diligence. Whatever we do, we focus our utmost attention, abilities and resources on our clients and their interests. In the pursuit of excellence, we believe that every client work is equally important and deserves the same degree of delicacy.
Promptness. Save for force majeure cases, our firm’s attorney work products are delivered without delay. Aiming at not causing any impediment to our clients’ workflow, we strictly comply with deadlines.
These core values, which are not mentioned in vain, are strictly pursued by every member of our firm so that we can help our clients solve any problems and surmount any challenges they may face.
Experience gained in different legal disciplines is one of the main factors developing a lawyer’s problem-solving skills. In this respect, our team has substantial experience in a tremendously vast area varying from individuals’ simplest legal needs to the most complex transactions of global companies operating in Turkey. The latter has, in time, materially enhanced our team’s flexibility and thus professional capability. Having learned that law, especially in Turkey, cannot always be practiced in air-conditioned offices, our team is ready to “take the field” at any time.
We are in an era where integration of the latest IT technologies into a law firm’s business is simply indispensable, same as in almost every sector. Accordingly, our firm has made a considerable investment in technology in order to provide its clients with flawless legal advice. We have the entire wherewithal, both hardware-wise and software-wise, to produce impeccable attorney work products.
We have not (and will never have) completed our professional development. We believe that the key to being a successful attorney in today’s world is to hone your skills in an everlasting manner. Accordingly, at AKDOĞAN | USLAŞ, learning is a lifetime commitment. From the trainees up to the partners, every single member of our firm does his/her best to follow all kinds of legal developments in the market on a regular basis and keeps himself/herself updated. In this respect;
High courts’ precedents are periodically reviewed,
Law-related panels/conferences are attended,
Internal seminars are organized where hot legal topics are discussed among our legal staff, and
Articles on a variety of legal subjects are written and published by our firm on international websites.
