Financial and corporate

A well-balanced firm, Erdem & Erdem’s biggest strength is project development. The firm is also active in banking, M&A, capital markets and competition. 

In banking, the firm advised lenders and borrowers. Erdem & Erdem acted in a number of transactions but most of them were confidential. 

In capital markets the firm assisted corporate issuers, private equity funds and financial institutions, but most of the transactions were confidential. 

The competition team worked on aspects of corporate transactions, but also on pure competition matters, such as agreements, preliminary investigation and investigations conducted by the Turkish Competition Authority. The firm represented Turkish Economy Bank on the investigation regarding syndicated loans. 

The M&A team represented local and international investors. A standout deal came from advising Recep Emre Pekar on the share sale of Glasshouse Bilgi Sistemleri Ticaret to Mediterra Capital Management. 

Infrastructure and energy were the main sectors of activity for the projects team during the research period. The team represented CH1 Investment Partners on financing of Hive Energy Group that operates ten solar power plants. 

Key clients include Alternative Taşımacılık, Ekol Lojistik, BMC Otomotiv, HLM International, Anadolu Cam and Jagex.
