Former Chief Legal Counsel and Head of Contracts at Havelsan Yavuz Selim Gunay and Ankara Yildirim Beyazit Universitesi Faculty of Law Associate Professor Ersin Erdogan have partnered up to launch Gunay & Erdogan Attorneys-at-Law, a new law firm in Ankara.
Gunay spent the last four years at Havelsan, joining the company as the Chief Legal Counsel and taking on the additional role of Head of Contracts in 2018. He spent three and a half years with Herguner Bilgen Ozeke before moving in-house.
Erdogan has been teaching at AYBU Faculty of Law since 2015, initially as an Assistant Professor and as an Associate Professor since 2018. Between July 2018 and March 2020 he also served as Vice-Dean at the university.
"Being in private practice is really exciting," Gunay said. "We founded a full-service boutique law firm and we are happy to assist our clients. We believe that our experience and academic background will be an asset for us."
