Founded in 2000, Moroğlu Arseven is an independent, full-service law firm with broadly demonstrated expertise and experience in all aspects of business law. Moroğlu Arseven provides specialized support and representation to employers of all sizes, ranging from small local businesses through to major Fortune 500 companies. The employment law practice extends to many industries, including sectors where employee and labour issues are particularly sensitive, or subject to extra regulatory protections.
The firm supports employers, C-Suite members and labour unions to understand, protect and assert their rights in this context, often advising clients in contentious, non-contentious, cross-border, or transactional circumstances.
The firm works closely with clients to deal with employment law as these issues arise in their daily business, aiming for our services to seamlessly support clients’ day-to-day human resources operations. These issues include ad hoc questions, as well as working with clients to assess, review or develop structured regulatory compliance programs, addressing areas such as privacy, health and safety, anti-corruption and executive liability, among others.
Our advice often includes sensitive and complex issues such as appropriate hiring practices, negotiating and managing employment contacts, collective bargaining agreements, benefit and compensation packages, social security and pensions, discrimination or harassment issues, employee misconduct, internal investigations, accidents, termination and re-structuring procedures. We regularly support clients to navigate the complicated and bureaucratic procedures for hiring foreign employees in Turkey, including immigration, tax and contractual aspects.
We regularly advise on employment issues during mergers and acquisitions, transactions, workforce reductions and corporate re-structurings. Our support includes employment-related aspects of M&A due diligence, liability assessments, distressed sales, collective dismissals, post-merger integration, as well as drafting and enforcing restrictive covenants such as non-compete clauses. We also regularly advise clients to localise and adapt international employment policies and compensation structures to suit the Turkish environment.
We advise on all aspects of establishing, managing and terminating outsourced or offshored arrangements. These range from business process, procurement and finance services, through to customer-facing functions such as support and service centres. Our experience includes a wide range of service-provision models, including geographical optimisation, SaaS integration, or multi-sourced environments, among others.
Moroğlu Arseven offers practical support for all aspects and stages of employment disputes, boardroom conflicts and union-relations issues. The firm’s full-service approach allows clients to comprehensively deal with a particular problem or any systemic issues which may underlie the conflict, in a cost-effective and uninterrupted manner.
