Turkey

Turkey and Switzerland have a long-standing tradition of close economic cooperation. The Turkey focus group advises and represents clients in all cross-border issues.


The economic exchange between Switzerland and Turkey traditionally plays an important role for both countries. The new double-taxation treaty, which entered into effect on January 1, 2013, was a milestone that further strengthened the two countries' excellent relations.


Since the introduction of the Swiss Civil Code and the Swiss Code of Obligations in Turkey by Kemal Atatürk, the founding father of modern Turkey, the private law systems of the two countries have developed in a similar direction. In fact, Turkish courts and legal scholars often refer to decisions rendered by the Swiss Federal Supreme Court when interpreting the law.
