We have the best networks and experience for advising Israeli companies, investors and entrepreneurs in support of all their UK related activities


Our dedicated Israel team includes lawyers who speak Hebrew and are regularly on the ground in Israel. They have a wide network across local firms, financial institutions and corporate contacts. You’ll always work alongside a senior lawyer who is an expert in their field, with at least 10,000 hours of practice.

Our Israel team comprises senior lawyers with expertise in Banking and Finance, Corporate and M&A transactions, Real Estate and a variety of other disciplines in different sectors. They are able to provide practical legal solutions for their clients and have strong commercial ability to support specific business requirements.

Our team offers a broad range of legal services to Israeli companies, business leaders and investors transacting in the UK, and Israeli corporations on their outbound growth and activities. We pride ourselves on an entrepreneurial and commercial approach that gets results.

We can help Israeli companies requiring international financing or investments; Israeli companies, investors and entrepreneurs looking to establish a presence in the UK; and we also assist local Israeli law firms with respect to their Israeli clients’ UK-related requirements.

Our experts can also advise high-net-worth Israelis on all aspects of their UK property interests and UK companies, investors and entrepreneurs in support of all their Israel-related activities.

Clients benefit from on-the-ground knowledge of the legal aspects related to doing business in Israel; our extensive network of close contacts with Israeli businesses and professional service providers; and in-depth understanding of the business culture and regulation to assist UK companies with their Israeli-related transactions. We also offer absolute transparency on fees, with no surprise rates or fee creep – just clear guidance, focused on the successful outcome of your project.
