CC could do really well by establishing a decent presence there while things are still quiet. There’s bound to be private equtiy interest once things pick up again and they stand a good chance of making themselves the go-to firm for such deals, Reply Link Psiakrew 18 August 2009 at 17:50 According to Turkish law, foreign law firms are not allowed to open local offices that practise Turkish law. In order to establish a presence on the ground, they need ‘working relationships’ with local firms. Reply Link Simple Simon 25 November 2010 at 14:12 CC has always taken the “long view”. Back in the 90’s they really invested in building their CEE practice eg by sposoring students years before they were going to qualify or even be needed by the firm… just to make sure that they had a pool of local talent available to them as and when needed. This more formal/structured move into Turkey merely cements their position as one of the top finance practices for deals in Turkey. As ever, hats off to them. They will dominate that market just like they have dominated the others. Reply Link Name Email Cancel reply Threaded commenting powered by interconnect/it code.
