Matur & Ökten & Karayel Keßler Law Office

Matur & Ökten & Karayel Keßler Law Office was founded under the name “Matur & Ökten Law Office” in Kemeraltı, İzmir in March 11, 1990. Our office in Izmir moved to its current location near Izmir Bayraklı Courthouse in 2011.

Our Founding Partners S. Murat Matur, Efsun Matur, and Turgay Ökten graduated from the Faculty of Law at Dokuz Eylül University in Izmir and have served as attorneys registered to İzmir Bar with the same passion and dedication for more than 25 years.

The Office hired Att. Dicle Matur Çökelek and Att. M. Efser Karayel-Keßler, who used to work on project-basis for our office, to permanent positions in October 2016, and therefore managed to expand its operations to İstanbul and Cologne/ Germany thanks to these new competent partners. Since then, the office has started to operate under the title “Matur & Ökten & Karayel Keßler Law Office.”

Furthermore, Att. Efsun Matur, one of our founding attorneys, has become one of the first registered mediators in Turkey following the Mediation Legislation that became effective in 2013, which allows our office to provide our clients with alternative ways to resolve disputes.

The scope of our activities can be divided into two main fields: counseling and litigation/dispute resolution. The division of work among our attorneys is based on their areas of expertise. In this way, when our clients contact with the office, their legal problem is evaluated and resolved by the partner attorney whose expertise is related to the given issue.

We can speak both English and German fluently in Matur & Ökten & Karayel Keßler Law Office. Furthermore, we also have attorneys in our team who have know-how and experiences in German Law, European Union Law, and International Trade and Investment law. Our office has managed to meet the European standards thanks to our partner attorney M. Efser Karayel Keßler, who received education on the German Law and Private International Law, and worked at international law offices and law departments of foreign companies.

The attorneys of Matur & Ökten & Karayel Keßler Law Office, who are comfortable at working both in Turkey and abroad, follow any legal developments closely and provide preventive and solution-oriented legal services to its customers. It is our primary goal to have a brilliant knowledge of most recent legal developments, and come up with legal solutions for our clients.
