Our alumni Dr Nusret Cetin (LLM in Banking and Finance-2009 and PhD in Banking and Finance-2013) and M. Suat Kayikci (LLM in Energy Law-2011) have recently set up their own law and consultancy firm, LBF Partners based in Istanbul, together with global-minded academics and lawyers. Another CCLS alumnus, Dr Kadir Bas (PhD in Competition Law-2013), who is a lecturer at the Marmara University Law Faculty, also provides legal consultancy to the firm.

LBF Partners offers full legal and consultancy services to its foreign and domestic clients both in Turkey and at international level. Its practice focuses on arbitration, banking and finance, capital markets, commercial and corporate law, competition, energy, foreign investment, and public international law.

LBF Partners currently works as a hub for CCLS alumni in Turkey, and also aims to build a business network with other CCLS alumni practicing in different countries around the world.
