Baran Gen: first class legal knowledge and practical deal-making skills. She puts the focus on the transaction to make sure it is done in the right way.

I have mostly worked with Baran Gen and Mert Elçin. Both have been very responsive and quick to act and helped us incredibly to close the deal smoothly. The deal involved especially in the last month a contract racing process (which is rare in Turkish market).

Baran is a very solid M&A practitioner with an exceptional command of law and cross-border M&A process.
