About Us

About Us

Bağatur Law Office was established in 1966 by Ege Bağatur, a lawyer, in Adana. Beginning with Ege Bağatur in Adana, the foundation of Bağatur Law Office actually goes back further than 1966 to the years when Judge Mehmet Sair Yener practised law in Ankara. Since 1966, we have been operating the rapidly prospering and strengthening Bağatur Law Office in Istanbul to increase efficiency and provide better service with the affiliation of associates M. Çağrı Bağatur and J. Işıl Bağatur in 1987, after sowing its seeds in Ankara and flowering in Adana.

For three generations, we have been providing services in the branches of advocacy, consultancy, projects, enforcement and conciliation to our clients through cooperation with more than 50 foreign law offices, most of them being in capital cities, and more than 45 domestic law offices.

In 2007 – 2008, we were the first law office to join the National Quality Movement in Turkey and Europe. Our approach for providing excellent quality services to our clients has been awarded with the “EFQM Committed to Excellence” and “EFQM Competency in Excellence” certificates.

As Bağatur Law Office, besides providing services with our values, innovative mission, and vision making a difference and adding value, we have also carried out many projects which stand out with our 50 years experience. We aim to maintain this innovative perspective which sets us apart from the others and makes us unique for as long as we exist.
