In addition to advising on three separate securitization transactions, some recent

Gokkilic provided legal advice regarding Turkish legal matters arising from the loan documentation, assisted in the drafting of Turkish security documents (e.g. pledge agreement) and Turkish corporate documents, and participated in their negotiation.
