Erdem & Erdem has a long-standing business history with the global actors of the port industry. Due to our extensive experience in this sector, we are contributing to the development of port legislation in the 21st century.

Our lawyers provide a comprehensive consultancy service on all types of legal issues that may be encountered in port management on a local and global scale, thanks to their ongoing experience with port operators, tenants, capital investors, customs administrations, warehousing, transportation, and brokerage services, and other actors playing a role in the port ecosystem. Additionally, Erdem & Erdem’s legal team represents its clients in disputes specific to the port industry and ensures the establishment of the legal infrastructure that they require in order to achieve their strategic goals.

In the field of port management, our team advises clients in a variety of areas, including merger and acquisition transactions, and European Union customs legislation, particularly in the area of privatization. In fact, Erdem & Erdem has provided consultancy services to domestic and foreign investors in almost all of the important port privatizations carried out in Turkey to date, and has played an important role in the concession tenders. Our team also provides services to its clients after the privatization process is complete. These services include advice on project financing, relations with the administration, following up on contracts, and litigation.

Erdem & Erdem also provides services to its clients in the port sector in other areas such as corporate affairs, project finance, labor law, competition law, arbitration, protection of personal data and anti-corruption.
