This international reach provides assurance to businesses looking to transact across borders by offering an integrated law firm that combines a market-leading international practice with extensive on-the-ground knowledge. In many locations where we do not have our own offices, we have established relationships with firms able to meet our clients’ needs. The ability of our lawyers to work effectively with our relationship firms in delivering a seamless, efficient and high-quality approach is among the factors that set us apart.
Our clients range from multinational, Global 1000 and Fortune 500 enterprises to emerging companies developing industry-leading technologies. We represent more than 140 of the top 250 Fortune 500 companies and nearly half of the FTSE 350 or their subsidiaries.
Israel Country Group
Since the practice began in 2009, our Israel Country Group has grown to include more than 100 lawyers throughout the firm, with the knowledge, business alliances, technical skills, language capabilities and in-depth understanding of the Israeli business culture, ecosystem and procedures to assist Israeli companies wherever they are doing business globally.
We provide a wide range of innovative legal services to Israeli companies, investors and entrepreneurs in support of their global activities, as well as to companies throughout the world seeking opportunities within Israel. We work closely with DLA Piper colleagues in our worldwide offices to offer Israeli clients a full range of business legal experience in more than 40 countries and more than 90 offices worldwide.
In addition, we create opportunities for Israeli companies by using our extensive connections both within Israel and abroad to leverage our global relationships in the corporate, financial and governmental arenas, and ultimately to match up strategic partners, potential joint ventures and other business-to-business connections.
DLA Piper is restricted for regulatory reasons from practicing local law in Israel, as are most international law firms. This has allowed our team to regularly work with leading local firms to deliver Israel law advice for our multinational clients as needed.
We actively maintain close relationships with a number of local law firms and can recommend suitable domestic counsel based on the requirements for each particular transaction, while at the same time enjoying the flexibility to work with a number of preferred legal providers.
We are experienced at managing these relationships to provide seamless client service, so you will always have one single point of contact to coordinate your matters.
