Founded in 1948, Skadden is one of the leading global law firms advising Israeli companies doing business and raising capital outside Israel and advising non-Israeli companies and individuals doing business in Israel. Our Israeli clients range from pre-IPO companies to Israel’s largest corporations.
For decades, Skadden has worked closely with the Israeli government and businesses on transactions, litigation and regulatory issues. Our firm has represented the State of Israel on note offerings totaling billions of dollars and advised the Israeli Securities Authority on capital markets reforms. In the private sector, Skadden frequently has advised Israeli issuers and underwriters offering securities in the U.S. public and private securities markets, and we have been active in multiple mergers and acquisitions involving Israeli companies. We have counseled venture capital funds raising funds for investment in Israeli companies, particularly companies engaged in technology and venture capital activities. Skadden has significant experience advising Israeli high-tech companies in connection with licensing and intellectual property matters related to both transactions and U.S. compliance issues. We also represent Israeli companies and individuals involved in U.S. court proceedings.
A number of our lawyers volunteer a significant amount of their time to Jewish and Israeli causes, including the America-Israel Friendship League, the Anti-Defamation League, the College of Management, the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, Elem, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, The Jerusalem Foundation and Miklat.
Our primary areas of experience in Israel-related matters include:
