Yigal Arnon & Co.'s Japan Practice Group has a broad range of experience representing Israeli and international clients engaged in transactions with Japanese partners, and Japanese clients seeking to engage in business in Israel.

Israeli-Japanese relations and cooperation have undergone significant expansion in recent years, as the economic ties between the countries have deepened. Cooperation between Israel and Japan was enhanced by visits of Israel’s prime minister to Japan and reciprocal visits of Japan’s prime minister to Israel. As positive developments continue to unfold, our dynamic and knowledgeable team of lawyers is primed to offer our services to both Israeli businesses looking to enter the Japanese market and Japanese businesses looking to enter the Israeli market.

Our experience is extensive and spans numerous industries, including technology, biotechnology and pharmaceuticals, agrotech, real estate, infrastructure projects, software, medical devices, venture capital, M&A and investment transactions, banking, cybersecurity, fintech, defense and security.

Clients value Yigal Arnon & Co.’s practical, hands-on approach, as well as our ability to bridge the gap between legal and cultural differences. 

Yigal Arnon & Co.’s interest in developing strong bonds between Israel and Japan extends beyond our practice. We are a Premium Member of the Israel Japan Chamber of Commerce, which strives to further develop the commercial ties between Japan and Israel and support businesses from both countries. In addition, we are in regular contact with the Japanese Embassy and branches of the Israeli government in an effort to help facilitate trade between Israel and Japan. We have also provided input to the Israeli government in regard to a contemplated amendment to the tax treaty between our two countries.
