Sofia-based Georgi Kanev has been appointed to lead Peterka & Partners’ newly-established Turkish desk.
Kanev, a Senior Associate who serves as the Deputy Director for Bulgaria at the firm, joined Peterka & Partners in 2017. Before that, he spent two years with Wolf Theiss.
Peterka & Partners reports that the desk already caters to several clients, including the Sarten Group, Turkish Airlines, the Yasar Group, and Zorlu Holding.
Ondrej Peterka, Founder and Managing Partner of Peterka & Partners, declared that “the creation of the Turkish Desk is the right response to the increasing importance of the Turkish economy and the natural interest of Turkish players in the CEE region to whom – as one firm – we provide integrated regional support.”
Kanev added: “I’m confident in the meaningful benefits for our clients and partners arising from this project. We are focused both on Turkish businesses currently operating in the CEE region or new market entrants, as well as on CEE companies expanding to Turkey. I’m convinced that, inter alia, our experience of working with Turkish clients and our well-established contacts with top tier Turkish law firms will allow us to develop strong and trustful relations with clients and partners interested in the services provided by our Turkish Desk.”
