Ephraim Abramson & Co. provides seamless assistance (both outbound and inbound) in all types of international transactions spanning a wide variety of industries, including high-tech, life sciences, agriculture, energy, manufacturing, telecommunications, food and beverage, information systems and electronics. Members of the International Transactions group have counseled Israeli and Israeli-related clients in transactions all over the globe, including in Europe, North and Latin America, the Russian Federation, Gulf States and Asia and the Pacific Rim (especially China, Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, Australia, Taiwan, and India). Likewise, we are proud to represent clients from all over the globe in their business and personal activities conducted in the State of Israel.
The International Transactions practice group’s focus is fairly evenly divided between inbound and outbound global deals, from the negotiation and formation of contractual arrangements to the complexities involved in establishing direct investments overseas or ushering non-Israeli clients into the complexities and novelty of the local Israeli market. The firm regularly helps clients with financial transactions, mergers & acquisitions, intellectual property licensing and protection, high- and low-tech product and systems sales, as well as trade and customs regulations (including import and export controls). When needed, our firm’s litigators support the International Transactions group and its clients in disputes abroad, particularly where contract provisions require arbitration and mediation outside of Israel.
An added benefit to our Israeli and Israeli-related clients is our ability to leverage an extensive and longstanding list of foreign lawyers and legal service providers, so that our clients’ foreign operations and foreign legal issues are handled by professionals with whom we are familiar.
Ephraim Abramson & Co. has hosted foreign lawyers in our Jerusalem offices on a regular basis, including from Japan where we enjoy some special professional relationships and clients.
