Former Birsel Managing Partner Splits to Start New Office

Former Birsel Managing Partner Splits to Start New Office


Well-known Turkish lawyer and former Birsel Managing Partner Begum Durukan Ozaydin has left that venerable Turkish firm to launch the Durukan + Partners law firm.

Ozaydin, who spent the past twenty years at Birsel — the past ten as Partner. For the past six and a half years she managed the day to day activities of the firm, working alongside Founding Partner Mahmut Birsel. She reports that, "as a partner having managerial responsibilities and supervision over almost all the work conducted in the firm, and having spent so many years there, it was a bit difficult for me to make the decision [to leave the firm], but finally, I moved on." 

At Durukan + Partners Ozaydin is joined by two full-time Senior Associates and two Litigation Specialists. In addition, Ozaydin reports, the Durukan + Partners partnership will double in size soon with the expected addition of another partner later this month, although Ozaydin declined to identify that partner at the current time.

According to Ozaydin, "I was fortunate enough to have enjoyed the rewarding confidence of ... clients who followed and worked with me even when my destination after Birsel was not yet certain. Our enthusiasm and ambition are strengthened with the increasing cooperation by more clients with our extended team. I am hopeful that all the experience and expertise coupled with the heavy responsibilities and managerial involvement I have undertaken at Birsel, supported by the extended team, will yield a successful business."
