Sarikatipoglu Law Firm has been formed in order to play a central role in Turkey in terms of developing how law is practiced, how lawyers are trained and how business risk is managed. We are not, and do not strive to be, the largest law firm measured by number of offices or lawyers. Our goal is to be the firm of choice for clients with respect to their most challenging legal issues, most significant business transactions and most critical disputes. We believe that the strength and depth of our practices, our client relationships, our sector approach, the quality of our people and our global platform give us significant competitive advantage.

Our main attribute that distinguishes us from our competitors is that we are truly commercial-minded lawyers having either finance or trade backgrounds. Hence, we have the ability to understand the business of our clients and share their commercial concerns. We do not position ourselves as risk-averse lawyers pointing out managable risks. We rather put ourselves in the shoes of the owner of the company and take the initiative to find the best structure for the deal and lead our client towards the most effective business decisions.

We serve clients at every level of their organization, whether as a key advisor to top management or as a hands-on litigator in court matters. For every engagement, we assemble a team with the most appropriate experience and expertise. No matter the challenge, we focus on delivering effective and enduring results, and equipping our clients to grow and lead. We partner with leading law firms from every major jurisdiction with our strong ties due to past records.

We are a law firm registered to Istanbul Bar Association and Turkish Union of Bars and a proud member of the International Association of Law Firms (UIA).


Our distinctive vision is to be a leading global team of lawyers and consultants intensely focused on delivering consistent quality and value to our clients and solve their most important and challenging problems.


Our mission is to gather the most talented lawyers dedicated to providing advice and expertise at the highest levels in all matters we undertake and provide practical and innovative legal solutions that help our clients succeed within the guidance of the firm’s core values.


Fulfilling our mission, we must always share our 4 core values:

  • Determination
  • Honesty
  • Seriousness
  • Sincerity
