About Us

“1. Read the statute. 2. Read the statute. 3. Read the statute.” That famous advice of Prof. Dr. Felix Frankfurter has found a place to itself in a dissenting opinion written against a decision of the Grand Chamber of Turkish Court of Cassation. Taking that advice as principle has a great importance for attorneyship which is the most serious addressee of law practice. A proper reading of the law with an effective interpretation which suits to its gist, is what keeps the ones represented from losing faith in justice. Same applies to determine the most effective method to achieve success. That quote from Sun Tzu’s book, “The Art of War” needs to be seen also as a pre-condition to any challenge in “the Art of Law”: “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”.
