Corporate representation is at the core of Yigal Arnon & Co.’s practice. Our top-ranked Corporate and Commercial Group provides wide-ranging legal assistance to Israeli and multinational clients across all industries, from mergers and acquisitions, strategic collaborations, joint ventures and partnerships to debt financings, concessions, licensing and everything in between.
Our success can be attributed to three factors: we understand the complexity of the businesses we represent and take the time to learn about the nuances of our clients’ industries, we take a flexible approach designed to adapt to latest developments and changing circumstances, and we provide multidisciplinary specialty teams offering full-scope representation that are tailor-made for each client.
Yigal Arnon & Co. boasts one of Israel’s strongest cross-border corporate practices:
Our International Corporate Group works closely with the firm’s other departments, including tax, real estate, antitrust, labor, intellectual property and litigation. This enables our clients to benefit from the full range of the firm’s expertise. Our exceptional lawyers—many of whom are native English speakers educated at some of the world’s leading law schools and trained at leading international law firms—provide a level of service and professionalism equal to that at any leading global firm.
Yigal Arnon & Co. has represented private and publicly traded Israeli and foreign companies in some of the largest, most important and most complex mergers and acquisitions in Israel’s history. In several cases, we have developed innovative transaction models, implemented strategies never before used in Israel and paved the road for others to follow.
Simultaneously with the large, high-profile transactions in which we typically represent multinational corporations that acquire Israeli companies, we also handle medium-size M&As that involve high-tech and startup companies as well as traditional businesses. Our M&A clients also include service companies and banks.
Given our resources, we easily assemble M&A teams that can meet even the tightest schedules. These multidisciplinary teams include experienced lawyers who specialize in corporate, securities, regulation, labor, tax, antitrust, intellectual property and, if necessary, litigation. They are able to provide the full range of knowledge and expertise required to cover every aspect of a merger or acquisition thoroughly and efficiently.
We handle all deal structures and sizes, including the acquisition of public and private companies, mergers and reverse mergers, share swaps, mergers that require court approval and asset sales.
Businesses encounter regulation in nearly every aspect of their operations. Yigal Arnon & Co.’s team has longstanding experience working with regulators. As a result:
Yigal Arnon & Co. offers comprehensive legal advice to nonprofit organizations (NPOs), including:
In certain cases—especially with small organizations that offer services to the general public in Israel and have limited or no resources—we provide services at reduced rates or pro bono on corporate, employment, organizational and operational matters.
