Introduction

Destek Patent in Numbers

History
Destek Patent was founded by Kemal Yamankaradeniz in 1983, as a limited company, basing on consultation with Prof. Dr. Metin Yerebakan. The firm was located in Bursa city, the heart of Turkey for textile and automotive industry with two hours away by ferry from Istanbul.

However, at those days, domestic companies had almost no knowledge and experience of industrial property rights in Turkey and these rights were still protected under the Patent Law 1879 and the Trademark Law (1950s). The Turkish Patent Institute and modern IP legislation were first introduced as of 1995. The title of patent/trademark attorneyship and entitlement exam was initiated in 1997 and first specialized IP court is established in 2001.

Under the leadership of Kemal Yamankaradeniz and especially between 1983-2000, Destek Patent’s partners and senior experts were closely involved in IP awareness and training activities for the companies, universities, governmental organizations and associations apart from their routine works. Within this mission, they were invited to lecture at hundreds of seminars, lectured as guest teachers at universities and colleges, and attended thousands of meetings with clients and various authorized people. The first International IP Congress in Turkey was organized by Destek Patent, namely in Bursa in 1996. We believe this mission and our contribution will never end.

Destek Patent’s first branch office was opened in 1985 in Ankara, the capital, due to the bureaucratic nature of the IP business and to be closer to the Turkish Patent Institute and other government offices. This was followed by the Istanbul office in 1992, Izmir office in 1998, Konya office in 1999, Gaziantep office in 2005 and so on.

In 2004, Destek Patent acquired Bursa Patent Ltd. and then transformed its legal status into incorporation by moving its headquarter to Istanbul in 2005. Bursa office still serves partly as operational center, i.e. for overseas affairs, where some of our IP attorneys are located.

Destek Patent has driven change and broken new ground in Turkish IP matters in its three-decades history. It is thus mentioned and ranked as a pioneering firm in the Turkish IP field.
