Karkın & Yüksel partner with the Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law

Karkın & Yüksel, London’s leading Turkish law firm, is pleased to announce a partnership with the Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law (the Bingham Centre), which is part of the British Institute of International and Comparative Law (BIICL), one of the leading independent research centres for international and comparative law in the world.

BIICL’s research encompasses almost all areas of public and private international law, comparative law and European law and the Institute is at the forefront of discussions around contemporary legal issues. The Bingham Centre was established by BIICL in 2010 to advance the rule of law worldwide. The Centre pursues Lord Bingham’s inspiring vision of a world in which every society is governed “in the interests of good government and peace at home and in the world at large”. Through its high-quality research, commentary, events and capacity building, the Bingham Centre aims to have a direct and sustained impact on the rule of law globally.

With a global network and over 25 years of Turkish legal expertise, including founding and managing Turkey’s former largest law firm, Karkın & Yüksel offers expert Turkish law counsel from the heart of the City of London. Their expertise is also unmatched as two of Turkey’s most accomplished and awarded lawyers, Murat Karkın and Cüneyt Yüksel founded and co-managed YükselKarkın Attorney Partnership, the country’s largest and market-leading law firm in 2016 prior to their London relocation in 2017. The Co- Managing Partners have the highest respect for the rule of law and human rights and have been always dedicated to advocate those principles.

This is a natural partnership between Karkın & Yüksel and the Bingham Centre – both share and closely practice the deep-rooted values of independence, democracy, human rights and the rule of law. The two have come together to build a comprehensive events programme around human rights and the rule of law. This is now under development and we look forward to sharing more details with you all shortly.

Murray Hunt, Director of the Bingham Centre, commented on this new partnership: “We are extremely grateful for Karkın & Yüksel’s support of the Bingham Centre. The partnership will help us to proactively address challenges to the Rule of Law worldwide, and to respond quickly to global events and developments.”

Murat Karkın, Co-Managing Partner at Karkın & Yüksel, also commented on the news: “We are delighted to have partnered with BIICL, a world-leading legal research centre, and look forward to all our work together around the fundamental importance of human rights and the rule of law.”
