Competition Compliance Manager at Migros Ticaret
Profession: In-House Counsel, Lawyer
Industry: Competition, Retail


In my 10-year experience of being a competition lawyer, I worked for several law firms and companies. Currently, I am working as an in-house competition counsel at Turkey's biggest supermarket chain. The economy, business and legal aspects of competition law keeps me in the game even if it gets really complicated and complex due to some certain externalities. The idea of helping a younger and eager woman out in her career is very exciting and liberating for me.
