In June, Central and Eastern Europe’s premier legal publication, CEE Legal Matters, selected the winners of the 2020 Deal of the Year for Turkey. We are very pleased that it was the project of Turkey Wealth Fund’s Acquisition of Controlling Shares of Turkcell Iletisim Hizmetleri A.S., in which our experts in Belarus took part. Our team, comprising partner Alexey Anischenko, senior associate Viktoryia Mikhnevich and associate Aliaksei Vashkevich advised Turkey Wealth Fund on all aspects of the Belarusian antimonopoly approval process.

“This year’s award-winning deals are particularly significant for taking place against the backdrop of the (at the time rapidly expanding) Covid-19 pandemic, and many of them were arranged, at least in part, remotely, and with newly-created facilitating technology. The judges who chose Turkey Wealth Fund’s Acquisition of Controlling Shares of Turkcell Iletisim Hizmetleri A.S. as the winner for Turkey were tremendously impressed by its domestic and regional significance, its size, and its complexity,” said CEE Legal Matters Executive Editor David Stuckey.
