The firm’s main office is ideally located in Istanbul, with a liaison office in Ankara – home to the Turkish Patent Office – and another in Izmir – western Turkey’s commercial centre. The firm is authorised and able to handle cases in the other cities and regions of the country as well.

The team is widely known for its success in managing large-scale trademark portfolios before the Turkish Patent Office and for its achievements in litigation and enforcement cases before the Turkish civil and criminal IP courts.
Running its own investigation department is another asset helping the firm to provide full support to the clients in all areas of intellectual and industrial property rights.
In addition to the services that Kenaroğlu provides to its clients before the judicial and administrative authorities in Turkey, the firm also actively handles the trademark portfolios of local and international clients in the Middle East and Africa through its local partners in the region.
