YılmazÜlker Aspires to Emerge as a Leading Force in Dispute Resolution

YılmazÜlker, a boutique law firm specialised in high-stakes litigation and advisory work, embarks on its journey at the heart of Istanbul.

The firm was founded by commercial and criminal law specialists Mümin Yılmaz and Barış Ülker, whose partnership can be defined as the blend of experience and dynamism.

Mümin Yılmaz is a battle-tested litigator with three decades of experience under his belt. His forte is criminal law as he defends high profile individuals mainly from Russia, Bulgaria and other Eastern Europe states in white collar crimes including corruption, fraud, money laundering. His practice cut across litigation as he provides advisory services to foreign clients in wealth management and asset restructuring matters.

Speaking to the Turkish Law Blog, Mümin Yılmaz stated that “Although the recent geopolitical and economic challenges, Türkiye consolidated its position in the eyes of foreign investors be it individuals or corporations. Yet, legal landscape in Türkiye tend to come across challenging to the foreigners operating in Türkiye. We have a keen understanding of such challenges and risk. With that mindset, as YılmazÜlker we pledge to navigate our clients in increasingly complex legal, regulatory and geopolitical environment by delivering practical solutions that align with their business objectives”.

Barış Ülker, on the other hand, specialises in cross-border corporate litigation that mainly arise from post-acquisition disputes, shareholder conflicts, distributorship disputes and controversies that relate to real estates. He is an active trial lawyer representing foreign and local clients before commercial and administrative courts. Before YılmazÜlker, Barış Ülker cultivated his skills in dispute resolution teams of top law firms in Türkiye as Paksoy and Pekin & Pekin.

Barış Ülker explains that “We saw the need for a law firm that is focused on crafting winning strategies for clients rather than providing textbook advises and following conventional procedures. We believe it is of paramount importance to identify needs and critical issues of our clients as early as possible to protect them from court procedures. However, if a matter goes to trial, we blend experience, dynamism and bold action to deliver the best results in most efficient way. We are motived by getting things done, being recognized as the best in our core practices and establishing a robust attorney-client relationship”.

YılmazÜlker’s practice focuses on high profile domestic and cross-border disputes. They offer clients a wide spectrum of litigation services ranging from complex corporate matters to white collar defence, administrative actions to real estate and construction disputes. The firm also has an advisory practice in matters relating to corporate governance, commercial law, cybersecurity and data privacy. The team comprised of lawyers proficient in English, French, Russian, Bulgarian, and Turkish languages allowing them to represent clients in proceedings and transactions in these languages, particularly in cross-border cases.
