Intellectual Property & Data Protection

Intellectual property and data protection issues are becoming more important globally, and this is also the case within Turkey with recent legislation changing the landscape.

Akol lawyers are closely monitoring these developments. We work closely with Turkish and multi-national companies to enforce, protect, and exploit their intellectual property rights.  We also advise on data protection issues across a wide variety of sectors including issues of compliance and internal data protection investigations and assessments.

The firm’s intellectual property lawyers provide quality support on significant M&A transactions, particularly in IP-heavy sectors such as Life Sciences; Internet, Digital Media and E-Commerce; and Technology, Media and Telecommunications. 

In addition, our team also deals with franchising, sponsorship, distribution, agency or licensing agreements where IP issues are critical.  We also regularly advise clients on whether commercial arrangements involving customer data infringe data protection legislation.
