Turkish lawyer Zeynep Serim has joined Erdem & Partners as a Partner.
Serim informed CEE Legal Matters that, "as a reputable lawyer with over 10 years’ experience, I advise national and multinational companies on International Commercial Law, International Arbitration, Contract Law, Property and Construction Law, Labor and Social Security Law. My main area of practice focuses on litigation, dispute resolution, legal consultancy on construction, financial institutions, luxury, fashion and beauty, franchising and distribution, manufacturing, retail and technology sectors."
Serim received her law degree from Bahcesehir University Faculty of Law in 2009, then obtained an LL.M. from Queen Mary University in London in 2012. She then began her professional career as an Associate at the Bener Law Office before, a year later, moving to the Aksan Law Firm. After a year and a half she joined BASEAK, before, in January 2016, founding her own eponymous firm.
She explained the reasons for her move to CEE Legal Matters: "Being part of the Erdem & Partners legal team was the best choice for me, since I wanted to develop my extensive knowledge and experience within an environment where the legal practice is in perfect collaboration with a strong academic background with the consultancy of law professors, notably our consultant Prof. Dr. Mehmet Erdem, who is one of the best professors of civil law in Turkey. In addition, it is also a pleasure for me to work with my colleague Attorney Gokhan Kesim, an excellent partner of Erdem & Partners Law Firm, with whom you are always sure that you provide most efficient legal solutions to your clients."
