Welcome to ILN-terviews, a series of profiles of ILN member firm attorneys, designed to give a unique insight into the lawyers who make up our Network.
For our latest interview, we chose ILN member, Can Natan of Ozcan & Natan in Istanbul, Turkey.
In one sentence, how would you describe your practice?
Mainly working on corporate commercial matters.
Who would be your typical client?
Medium-sized and large foreign invested corporations.
What would you like clients and potential clients to know about you?
That we are a team of legal consultants with a strong, solid background to “make things happen.”
What has been your most challenging case? Why?

When we set up Ozcan & Natan Law Firm with my partner.
What do you do when you’re not practicing law?
I enjoy traveling, reading, watching any kind of sports, playing football and going to the movies.
What would surprise people most about you?
I guess nothing!
What has been your most memorable ILN experience?
My first ILN meeting in Paris that I attended as a guest. I was amazed by the warm welcome of the members and by the friendly atmosphere of the meeting.
What career would you have chosen if you weren’t a lawyer?
I’d loved to be a football manager.
If a movie were made out of your life, who would you want to play you?
I think it’s too early to think about that.
How would you like to be remembered?
As a good lawyer.
