About Orkun & Orkun
Orkun & Orkun was established in 1985 by founding partner Mr. Süleyman Orkun. It quickly became one of the largest certified public accountancy firms in Turkey’s Aegean region.
When Mr Burak Orkun joined the firm in 2005 (as managing partner), he expanded the business and began collaborating with leading international property law firms in the UK – dealing with their clients’ tax, company set-ups and auditing.
Following this collaboration, Ms Başak (Yıldız) Orkun left her post as partner at The International Law Partnership LLP, in London, to join Orkun & Orkun as a partner. This merger gave Orkun & Orkun legal consultancy status.
Orkun & Orkun now work in law and finance on a local and international level, and are well-trusted in both.
