Her clients are generally composed of domestic and foreign legal entities in the fields of aviation, engineering, construction, production, technology, and the defense industry.

Yeşim works on long-term and complex commercial relations. Recent projects include the drafting, revision, and negotiation of contracts within the scope of a project regarding the establishment of a joint venture company, due diligence processes within the scope of an acquisition, and various commercial agreements. For this reason, she seeks to have a proper understanding of the commercial objectives and expectations of the client. Due to the diversity of her clients, Yeşim has gained valuable information about many sectors in a short time, which has made her passionate about her work. She states that it is critical to keep up-to-date because legislation is constantly changing. 

She says, "In some cases brought to us by clients, the latest information is not immediately available due to the lack of a clear legistlative regulation on the subject. In order to be able to advise the client best, I conduct extensive research and consult with the authorized institutions when necessary.  I keep my clients updated at every stage."
