TCiting "family-related reasons," former Akol Law lawyer Jonathan Clarke has left his position with the Istanbul-based firm to move back to the UK, where he re-joins DLA Piper as a Legal Director.

Clarke minimized the significance of the change in a comment with CEE Legal Matters. “This is very much business as usual, I remain passionately committed to supporting my Turkish clients (while also supporting DLA Piper’s clients in the Turkish and other international markets).  It is a good time to be able to have access to a global network to support Turkish cross-border deals (both inbound and increasingly outbound as Turkish multi-nationals look to geographically diversify); and I am also looking forward to being able to support multi-national clients in multiple geographies (including in the CEE region where I have already done a number of deals).”

Clarke is a specialized Corporate Commercial and Mergers & Acquisitions lawyer who has been based in Turkey for more than 12 years. He focuses his practice on company and commercial transactions including corporate finance, share sales, business sales, joint ventures, take-overs, mergers & acquisitions, commercial agreements, and reorganizations. In addition, Clarke has experience in advising corporate and M&A matters in highly-regulated areas such as capital markets, energy, life sciences, media and mining- with a particular focus on insurance matters.

Clarke worked with Dentons (in its various incarnations) in Istanbul from 2000 to 2011. From 2011 until joining Akol Law in 2016 he was with DLA Piper.
