Bilge Kavas

Hi, I’m Bilge, I’m the Legal Counsel at ATÖLYE. 

Bilge joined the ATÖLYE team in 2021 and is working as Legal Counsel.

Bilge graduated from Özyeğin University Department of Law and completed one semester in Belgium as an exchange student. During her undergraduate education, she worked at the Lifelong Learning Center and participated in various programs and projects related to undergraduates’ adaptation and happiness at university.

She took part in long-term internships within the legal departments of FIBA Holding and Roche Diagnostics and worked on contract law, labor law, commercial law, regulation and compliance law. Her path crossed with ATÖLYE at the end of 2019 when she started working as a trainee lawyer at Cihangir Hukuk, a member of the ATÖLYE community. Then she had the opportunity to work with ATÖLYE’s legal advisor Av. Aysu Güneş and her legal firm A Legal Studio. During these periods, she focused on NGOs, startups, and creatives. Recently, she’s been working on impact-oriented structures, social enterprises, and legal design areas with different initiatives.
