McDermott Will & Emery has become the latest international firm to forge an alliance in Turkey, choosing health law as its route into the country.
The US firm has signed a preferred provider relationship with local firm Fora & Sanli, an Istanbul-based commercial firm with experience in regulatory and corporate health work. The arrangement kicks off with immediate effect.

In December Allen & Overy (5 December 2011) said it was setting up a foreign law practice in Istanbul.
