Privatization

The attorneys of Hergüner Bilgen Özeke have extensive privatization experience and have managed numerous privatization transactions. Since acting for the underwriters in the privatization of shares in automotive giant TOFAŞ through a public offering in 1993, and acting as legal counsel to the Turkish Privatization Administration for the privatization of Türk Telekom in the mid-1990s, Hergüner has been heavily involved in most of the major privatization deals in Turkey. The firm has advised numerous foreign and local investors in connection with all aspects of the privatization process, implementation of tenders, preparation of required documentation, post-closing representation, integration matters such as licenses and permits, and financing of the privatizations.

Hergüner has also shared its extensive privatization experience with its clients regarding transactions in other jurisdictions outside of Turkey. The firm has exclusive knowledge in transactions involving business entities seized by the Turkish Savings Deposit and Insurance Fund (TMSF).
