Pinsent Masons is set to launch an infrastructure-focused Turkey office after inking a deal with a local lawyer.
The firm will work with the former arbitration head of Hergüner Bilgen Özeke, Noyan Göksu, who will establish his own practice and form a joint venture with Pinsents once granted regulatory approval.
Local bar rules in Turkey demand that international firms tie-up with a local market player in order to practise in the country. Pinsents aims to get the necessary approval by April 2013.
The office will focus on infrastructure deals across Turkey, Eastern Europe, Asia, the Gulf and Africa, and in particular, the international contractor market. The firm aims to have around 20 lawyers in the office by 2016, although it has not yet confirmed which partners, if any, will be seconded to Turkey to help run the base.
