We appreciate our clients and the trust they place in our firm. Below is what some of our clients have to say about our services:

“Boden Law is acting for Gunvor Group in energy compliance matters. In another highlight, Değer Boden assisted Igdeas with a tire gasification and electricity generation project, which included advising on tire supply agreements, gasification technology license agreements, joint venture agreements, EPC contracts and related project finance negotiations. Boden’s ‘energy expertise brings additional value’, and Murat Yörükoğlu is ‘an effective and practical lawyer, who provides to-the-point advice’.”
