Background - Practices (Details)

Israel Practice


Our Israel Practice provides one-stop strategic and legal advice to Israeli companies doing business in the U.S. and multinationals partnering with Israeli companies. We handle the complete array of issues that Israel-related businesses often face, from intellectual property advice on the first idea, to corporate and employment representation in the establishment and financing of the entity, to securities work on the public offering, through M&A representation on the sale of the company. 

How We Work

We facilitate business opportunities for our clients by early identification of market openings, private and government RFPs, technology trends, investor desires, compelling technology and the like, and by making introductions to potential business partners. Our extensive relationships with Fortune 500 companies, category killers, private equity leaders, and venture capital funds enable us to introduce Israeli emerging companies to the most sought after investors and strategic partners. And our vast network in the Israeli business community allows us to introduce our industry-leading multinational clients to compelling Israeli technologies and products, and those who create them.
