Israel Team

According to the World Bank, in 2013, Israel’s GDP was $291 billion; larger than 19 of the members of the European Economic Area.

There are major market opportunities and growing demand in Israel for expertise in capital markets, real estate finance and financial services, all of this requiring English law input.   There will also be cases where Israelis and Israeli businesses need to litigate or resolve disputes subject to English jurisdiction.

The strong connections that we maintain with Israel give us a true understanding of the Israeli market and the way in which it continues to develop.  Most members of the Team have residences in Israel and frequently visit, with one of our partners permanently resident.  Members of the team are fluent in both Hebrew and Arabic. 

Our clients include Israeli banks, financial advisers, hedge funds, crowd-funders, property Investment, development and finance companies, family offices and high net worth individuals.  We also work with many of the leading Israeli law and accountancy firms on international matters.
