Hong Kong, 21 July 2022: Colin Cohen has welcomed Ally Law’s expansion into Turkey, with Istanbul-based Dündar Sır Law Firm joining the global legal services organisation.

“The country’s economy grew 11% last year, the fastest among the G20 nations, and now ranks as the 19th biggest in the world. Against this background, we are delighted to have Dündar Sır on board and we look forward to working with them.”

Formed in 2012 by legal professionals who had practiced together in leading banks, global law firms and Turkish governmental institutions, Dündar Sır provides services that span high-tech, infrastructure and energy projects, banking and financial services, capital markets and litigation.
