24 August 2023
Alliott Global Alliance (AGA) has taken its first steps into Eurasia with the appointment of Turkey and Azerbaijan based law firm, Ak Danis Attorney Partnership (Ak Danis) to the membership.
Founded in 2022 by Ali Emre Ak and Şamil Daniş in Istanbul and by Maharat Huseynli in Baku, the firm offers corporate and M&A, arbitration & disputes, international commerce & trade and ethics & compliance legal services, and the team has extensive experience of working on complex projects for large international corporations in Azerbaijan, Turkey and further afield.
Working mainly across the energy & mining, construction & infrastructure, venture capital, food, and textile sectors, the partners have retained an impressive client portfolio gained through their previous experiences of working in-house for international law firms and organisations, and they have forged relationships over the years with many consulates and embassies. They currently sit on several executive committees on business council boards including MUSIAD’s Diplomatic Relations Committee, DIIK's Turkey Azerbaijan Business Council, and they are a member of the British Chamber of Commerce in Turkey.
Business is conducted at the firm in the English, Turkish and Azerbaijani languages.
Ali Emre Ak comments:
“We are delighted to have been appointed as AGA’s full legal representative in Azerbaijan and to represent them in Istanbul.
“In a very short time, we have tripled our client portfolio and have many clients operating across multiple jurisdictions. Now, through AGA, we can access the expertise and resources of our new colleagues regionally and around the world and support those clients looking to expand their business operations outside of Azerbaijan and Turkey, while also assisting our colleagues across the world with their cross-border requirements.”
Alliott Global Alliance’s CEO, Giles Brake adds:
“We have worked through our local contacts to identify a dynamic law firm that gives AGA a presence in Azerbaijan and a foothold in Eurasia from which we can grow further. This is a new frontier for AGA so we are delighted to have an excellent local member firm in place with Ak Danis. The firm will ensure high levels of service are provided to AGA member firms’ clients across the world, and with AGA’s global resources behind them, the firm will be in an optimum position to generate new opportunities from their region. We extend a very warm welcome to Ali Emre, Şamil, Mahararat and all the team at Ak Danis.”
