Years of experience, innovative & tailored solutions
Diri Legal was founded in 1990 by Mr. Hayri Diri in Izmir, and continued its operations since then by providing global services to prestigious international and domestic clients. With the participation of Ms. Nazan Diri Bal in January 2018, the whole team is renewed and the Firm is restructured by a new generation touch. Now, with the second generation behind the wheel and the dynamic and highly capable team who previously worked in top tier firms and companies, Diri Legal offers services to its clientele as an independent and full-service law firm in both its Istanbul and Izmir offices, with affiliated colleagues in Ankara.
Without our clients, there is no “us”
The Firm has a strong understanding of different business needs of its clients and is well aware that any process would fail without their cooperation. This is the very reason that client-centered approach is well adopted by the team. We know that the art of client counseling requires deep knowledge of law, creativity and being solution-oriented. Thanks to our team’s valuable past experiences, at Diri Legal, we have the key to ensure our clients high quality and cost-effective legal services. We are fully aware that client-centeredness does not only mean working long hours, but in fact implementing necessary changes to make the Firm more “client friendly” in all aspects. Keeping all these in mind, we value not only technical quality of the work we produce, but also service quality which helps us maintain our clients’ confidence through the journey.
From the standpoint of our clients
“As a lawyer representing foreign investors operating and investing in Turkey, working with you was a source of comfort as I was confident we are getting a solid and comprehensive professional legal advice in timely manner which facilitated the challenge of language and cultural barriers. You have the ability to perceive legal challenges on both macro and micro levels, cross-border and national levels, and provide practical solutions.”
“I just want to take a moment to thank you for your tireless efforts to support our company’s recent increased case load. There have been many new arrivals, departures and work permit renewal requests and other relevant and difficult issues. The new work permit application process and logistics have been challenging, to say the least. Our employees have been applying for the work permits at Turkish embassies and Consul Generals around the world, each with different nuances and multiple changes. You and your staff have been very resourceful, patient, supportive and professional during the entire process. We really appreciate your unconditional help and assistance.”
“You are a very knowledgeable, diligent and capable attorney, who seeks clients at most benefit yet being fair and professional at all times. I would recommend your professional and capable services to any legal client.”
