Finance Transactions

The Firm represents corporate and individual investors (usually with an Israeli connection) with respect to both outbound and inbound investments. We have been involved in a broad range of transactions including: public and private equity offerings, secured financing transactions and mergers, acquisitions and privatizations.

In each outbound transaction, we work in cooperation with local legal and tax experts, but we assume primary responsibility for the transaction, and supervise all aspects of the legal work, taking advantage of the know-how and experience we have accumulated working in the United States, Eastern and Western Europe. Our involvement is very broad, from structuring the transaction, through drafting the necessary documentation, and ending with closing and post-closing implementation .

Our representation of Israeli-related investors in outbound transactions has included investments in the fields of real estate, non-banking financial services (insurance, pension funds), agriculature and telecommunications.

We have also represented individuals and institutional investors based abroad in all aspects (including taxation) of investments in Israeli companies and investment funds.
