DWF gets foothold in Turkey through alliance
DWF has made an alliance with Turkish firm Özkan Law to open an offering in the country. The agreement gifts DWF with 12 lawyers in Turkey, with managing partner Orkun Özkan at the helm.
The firm’s clientele includes companies such as Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria (BBVA), Mitsubishi Corporation, Rail Cargo Austria AG, and HSBC Bank.
Andrew Leaitherland, DWF’s managing partner and CEO commented that the alliance was a “very natural development” considering the years of collaboration between the two firms, citing the strength of their “very positive and productive” working relationship and Turkey’s “promising immediate and long-term opportunities.”
