With a strong work ethic and years of experience,
we provide you with tailor-made solutions.
Erdem & Erdem is an international law firm that offers legal solutions to a wide range of clients in all areas of law, including primarily international commercial transactions, mergers and acquisitions, corporate restructuring, international contracts, corporate finance, project finance, energy, privatizations, public and private partnerships, private equity investments, capital markets, competition, litigation, execution, bankruptcy, taxation, and arbitration.
Reliability is the basic ingredient of the cooperation we have established with our team, our clients and our other partners. On the basis of openness and transparency, we handle our clients' business challenges, produce solutions, and defend their rights before the courts. We sensitively protect the trade secrets of our clients and all those we work with and we attach great importance to data confidentiality. The fact that we, as a whole team, have internalized the ethical values of Erdem & Erdem is the basic element of our reliability.
We believe that the development of sustainable and productive business relationships is based on the effective work of several individuals in line with the principles of respect, understanding, compromise, synergy and common achievement. In team work, we care about individual quality, the existence of common corporate values, and we adopt a management approach in accordance with this value system. The most significant thing for us is to work together diligently as a team to provide the highest-quality service.
We established our Quality Management System in 2012 in order to provide the highest-quality legal services to our clients and to develop effective solutions to their changing needs. We systematize our corporate data, make data-based decisions, and improve ourselves as well as our service quality continuously and systematically. Our compliance with the international quality management system has been evaluated for 10 years by audits carried out by both in-house and independent audit institutions and is documented with an ISO 9001 2015 certificate.
We handle all legal processes with scientific methods based on solid reason and knowledge. In order to solve or explain a challenge, we refer to objective, reliable information based on certain laws, and avoid personal thoughts and judgments. We encourage the scientific approach and direct all our teammates to read, research, question and analyze. We also support this scientific approach with our publications and Erdem & Erdem Academy activities. Thus, we produce fast and practical solutions to many different and complex legal problems.
In today's world, where change takes place rapidly in every field, we are constantly reviewing our ways of doing business and our competencies. With the Intern Training Program, Erdem & Erdem Academy trainings and mentoring practices, we regularly monitor the professional and behavioral development of our teammates and support them to increase their knowledge and develop their leadership qualities. We believe that artistic, sportive and cultural achievements are also a part of the individual's development, and we are proud of the way our colleagues develop their curiosity and talents in different fields.
We respect differences. We do not discriminate on the basis of nationality, gender, religion or other personal characteristics. We try to create a working environment where each of our team members feel valued and respected and can express themselves as they are. We value the different abilities and experiences of all our colleagues, regardless of age, gender, job and seniority, and aim to create an inclusive culture. We offer equal and fair opportunities to each person. Our team members are always tolerant of each other and know that their differences are their strengths.
Part of Erdem & Erdem's 35-year culture is that it offers its professional experience and services free of charge for the public good. By supporting civil society activities, we aim to raise awareness of working for the benefit of society. Through our work, we contribute to further enhancing the role and function of law in the protection of human rights.
As Erdem & Erdem, we offer pro bono services in various fields. In cooperation with NGOs operating in many different fields, we provide legal support in areas such as litigation, preparation of contracts and other legal documents, and labor law and protection of personal data. Also, we ensure that the necessary actions are taken to comply with the legislation.
Every year, our lawyers lend their support to NGOs that are active on issues such as the disabled, autistic and spastic children.
In line with our emphasis on social responsibility, the entire team strives to reduce paper consumption during our operations and to transfer more documents to the digital realm every year. We also support these efforts with afforestation activities. In this context, we founded the Erdem & Erdem Grove in the Kınık district of İzmir. In order to contribute to the sustainability of natural life and to improve environmental awareness, we continue to plant saplings in different regions of our country every year.
We are aware of the fact that social development is constituted by raising educated, cultured, modern, free-thinking, environmentally and socially conscious generations. Considering that all children and young people do not have equal opportunities, we support the education of children and youth in need. We carry out various activities and offer opportunities to young people who step into the legal profession, to help them develop, prepare them for the business world, and to help them to become good lawyers.
