Israel is one of the world’s fastest rising regions, and represents an increasingly important growth market for multinational corporate and financial investors alike. Its integration into the global economy has come rapidly, with large and increasing inbound flows of venture capital and angel investor capital, as well as strategic investments and acquisitions from large multinational organizations. In addition, numerous homegrown companies are achieving success on the world stage—particularly in the high technology, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, telecommunications, and industrial sectors.

O’Melveny has a long history of helping Israeli clients achieve success. Our diverse team of lawyers around the world possesses a deep understanding of the Israeli market, culture, and business practices—with lawyers who have practiced in Israel, who were educated and grew up in Israel, or who are fluent in Hebrew. We have long-standing relationships with many of the key market-makers in Israel, including some of the region’s most active executives, serial entrepreneurs, investors, and advisors. O’Melveny lawyers, both in the US and in our Asia practice, often work on transactions that involve Israel for large multinational companies seeking to invest or establish operations in Israel.

Our long track record of success is built on our thorough understanding of Israeli culture, Israeli business practices and social preferences, and the way deals get done by the various players in the Israeli market. From multi-billion dollar strategic transactions to growth company counseling, to cross-border investments involving the US, Asia, or Europe, O’Melveny’s Israel practice has long been counsel of choice for clients seeking to capitalize on the region’s enormous opportunities as well as counseling Israeli companies of all types seeking opportunities outside Israel.
