Turkish lawyers Mehmet Ipek, formerly of Ipek & Akin, and Ceyda Akbal Schwimann have joined forces to launch the new Ipek | Akbal Schwimann law firm in Istanbul. Ipek's former partner at Ipek & Akin, Tansu Akin, has set up Akin | Legal.

Ipek established the Ipek Law Firm in 1990, then co-founded the IKMS Law Firm in 2007. In 2016 he partnered up with Akin to create Ipek & Akin. 

Splitting her time between Vienna and Istanbul, Schwimann has worked with Wolf Theiss and as Head of the Turkey Practice at Specht & Partner. She began her career in White & Case’s Istanbul office. CEE Legal Matters interviewed Schwimann for the Expat on the Market section of the magazine in 2015, when she was still with Specht & Partner.

Tansu Akin started his legal career as a law clerk with Attorney Ibrahim Akin in 1999. From 2000 to 2002 he was a legal intern with Altheimer & Gray, and from 2002 to 2006 he worked as a solo practitioner and then joined Mercedes-Benz Turk AS, where, by the time he left almost ten years later, he had become the Corporate Secretary, General Counsel & Compliance Manager. In addition to setting up Akin | Legal, he also acts as the Chief Administrative Officer of Getron, a company that develops software solutions in the fields of artificial intelligence, predictive analytics, predictive intelligent, demand forecasting, inventory optimization, prescriptive analytics, and retail.

"We are excited to have formally established our partnership after more than ten years of collaboration on Turkey-related matters," Schwimann said. "Together we have already successfully handled a number of complicated cross border matters and with the new structure, which ensures independence and flexibility, we are confident that we will add even more value to our clients’ businesses."
