If you are an Israeli business seeking access to global markets or if you are interested in doing business in Israel, you need access to highly experienced and knowledgeable legal support. Both Israel and the worldwide technology markets provide a wealth of opportunities, but they can pose problems for the ill-prepared and the unwary.

What issues face an Israeli business as it attempts to access global capital? How can Israeli technology be protected outside of Israel? What innovative financing mechanisms may be available to Israeli enterprises? How should foreign investors structure an investment in Israel?

These are just some of the questions Mayer Brown's Israel group helps to answer for clients on a regular basis. The lawyers in our global Israel group have the practical experience, technical skills and commercial know-how needed to help you realize your objectives in Israel. The group includes Israeli-qualified lawyers and Hebrew-speaking lawyers.

Our Approach

Our Israel group has the resources and experience to advise on practically any type of transaction—but never at the expense of personal attention and service.

We do not believe in "over-lawyering" any engagement. We assign a lead partner with relevant experience to direct and manage the assignment from inception to completion, giving our clients the comfort and security of knowing that this individual will keep them informed at every stage.

Our lawyers are accustomed to working under tight deadlines and take a proactive approach to ensure that issues are fully anticipated and resolved. In practice, this means proper analysis of the transaction at its outset, the early identification of potential problem areas, and rigorous project planning and timelines. We also use the latest technology to effectively manage our clients’ issues, including the provision of secure virtual deal rooms on major transactions. We make sure that our approach is flexible enough to allow for and deal with last-minute issues, and we have a proven ability to field additional global legal strength upon short notice.
