About Us

ACTECON provides advisory services to its local and international clients in the areas of competition law, international trade and regulations. 

ACTECON draws its strength from its committed and solution-oriented team, extensive sector-specific knowledge, local and multinational expertise and know-how on the insights of the business world. ACTECON is experienced in offering effective strategies from the perspective of law & economics. The firm creates a meaningful difference through its in-depth understanding of the global competition and the challenges of the global economy. Our working principles include work ethic, commitment to provide value-added service and consistency in every aspect. 

ACTECON's practice in competition law is focused on antitrust investigations, leniency applications, merger control, competition compliance programs and providing day-to-day competition law advice to its clients. ACTECON works especially with multinationals located in Turkey with the perspective of corporate compliance basis and international service standards. In this respect, we implement competition law compliance through our custom made Competition Compliance Program (also incorporating an e-learning base that is designed and owned by ACTECON). 

ACTECON’s Trade Team has extensive experience in trade remedies and related customs problems, in-depth knowledge of the Turkish business world, and a well-established, excellent working relationship with Turkish public authorities including the Turkish Ministry of Trade. ACTECON helps clients tailor solutions to execute industry-specific strategies and build strong cases in anti-dumping, safeguard, anti-circumvention investigations and customs applications. ACTECON has represented and assisted both domestic and foreign interested parties in several trade remedy cases in Turkey and abroad, working alongside clients and law firms. 

We help our clients operating in regulated industries understand market dynamics and the regulatory environment. ACTECON prepares regulatory impact assessments, opinions and position papers that may address the clients or the regulatory authorities. As part of our regulations expertise, we also design Data Protection Compliance programs for companies by implementing our extensive knowledge of various sectors.

ACTECON's principled approach to doing business is based on its core values. By codifying these values in our strategies, policies and procedures, ACTECON seeks to establish a corporate culture of integrity.
