Venture Capital Investments

At Aksan Law Firm, we have a dedicated team of 5 in the venture capital investments field. Such dedication helped us accumulate a tremendous experience and know-how in the field, which is quite rare in Turkey.

Aksan helps its clientele of venture capital funds and angel investors close their investments in Turkish tech startups fast and hassle-free.

We serve our clients all the way through, starting from fund formation (or other investment vehicles) to drafting investment documents to negotiation. We also handle the closing phase.

Some of the services we provide in the Venture Capital Investments field:

  • Drafting standard investment documentation for funds to operate or invest in Turkey.
  • Reviewing docs. provided by other parties of an investment, as in a co-investment or an investment under the lead of another investor or reviewing the contracts submitted by other 3rd parties
  • Conducting the due diligence or other legal review as may be necessary during and before the investment process
  • Drafting main investment documents, handling the negotiations and reviewing the contracts and managing the closing process

Moreover, due to Aksan’s full service capacity in a broad range of services, we continue providing services post-investment, to supervise the portfolio companies on behalf of investors.

The team also provides seamless services through a fully integrated liaison office in San Francisco. We serve venture capitalists willing to invest startups in the U.S. (through convertible instruments or preferred equity) and help tech startups from the region to design and execute their flip-up process (migrate to) the U.S.
