Pelin has notable experience supporting clients to negotiate and draft share purchase, share subscription and shareholders’ agreements, as well as ensuring major transactions close smoothly. Her close involvement during due diligence stages often enables Pelin to identify potential legal risks and red-flags for clients during later stages, as well as suggest methods to address these.
She regularly works in the technology, entrepreneurship and start-up eco-systems, advising clients on both sides of investment transactions. Pelin also supports clients in these sectors to understand their consumer law obligations, as well as helps them to navigate regulatory compliance and corporate issues.
Pelin has a strong track record supporting clients involved in corporate and commercial disputes, particularly during conflicts about shareholder rights. Her corporate litigation experience supports Pelin’s advice to clients during M&A projects, as well as vice versa. These dual focuses mean Pelin assists clients to look beyond the immediate transaction or conflict, offering suggestions on how to structure transaction agreements to avoid future disputes, as well as implementing tailored dispute mitigation mechanisms for clients.
