Israel, the “Start-up Nation,” is blessed with an entrepreneurial spirit that has led to innovation in all aspects of our daily lives. Ephraim Abramson & Company lawyers are privileged to work in this exciting business environment, to offer our value-add to our clients, and to ensure that their entrepreneurial spirit is accompanied by a solid legal foundation before they take off for the stratosphere. We are known locally, nationally and internationally for our work representing start-ups, which have been active in a range of sectors including high-tech, life sciences (medical devices), food-tech, software, cybersecurity, digital media, eCommerce, Internet of Things (IoT), hardware, and manufacturing.
Our four-pronged focus for start-up ventures and emerging companies is to (i) assist in launching the venture (such as via company formation and founder agreements), (ii) protect any intellectual property (commercial agreements to protect IP and proprietary information, IP registrations, employment undertakings), (iii) accompany clients through the initial financing process (friends & family, angel, SAFE, debt, equity and other convertible financing), and (iv) help any way possible in growing the business (such as by negotiating and drafting commercial agreements, and by making introductions (to the extent we are able to do so) to Israeli and global players in finance and in the client’s field). We offer practical, solution-focused advice with a business perspective honed from representing clients at every stage of development.
