A video discussion

This video was filmed on 20 March 2017 in Bodrum, Turkey. The law and practice in Turkey change all the time. Please be aware that it may be out of date.

This interview features Başak Yıldız Orkun, Managing Partner at Orkun & Orkun (info@orkunorkun.com) and John Howell, Editor & Founder of Guides.Global (editor@guides.global).

Our videos are, of necessity, both brief and general and can take no account of your personal circumstances. They are intended to be a good introduction to the subject BUT ARE NO SUBSTITUTE FOR PROPER PROFESSIONAL ADVICE, which our contributors will usually be happy to provide upon request.

The advice and opinions contained in this video are those of the speakers and are not necessarily those of Guides.Global.
