Goodwin’s Israel practice provides solutions and produces results for companies doing business in Israel, as well as US-based companies interested in investment opportunities by leveraging the experience of attorneys working across practices areas and office locations.

Our attorneys have significant experience working with Israeli businesses as well as with investors in Israeli companies. We understand the Israeli legal structure, culture and business environment, and many attorneys in our practice are proficient in Hebrew. Our practice includes representing companies, investors and investment banks in a variety of areas, including private equity, venture capital, a wide range of intellectual property matters and complex commercial litigation. From start-up financing and corporate partnering to public offerings and mergers, we help technology and life sciences clients find the strategic paths that foster growth.

We have a long-standing commitment to the Israel business community and have sponsored numerous conferences and seminars, in addition to hosting our own meetings and networking events for clients and friends of the firm.

Our multidisciplinary team includes attorneys from our Technology, Life Sciences, Private Equity, M&A/Corporate Governance, Intellectual Property Litigation, Securities and Shareholder Litigation, Specialty Litigation, and Real Estate Capital Markets practices, which lends itself to collaboration across disciplines and practical, strategic counsel for our clients.
