Drones

Traditionally, drones were considered the domain of the Israeli defense industry and, as such, were dominated by the major Israeli defense companies. In the past few years, however, the Israeli market has witnessed a surge in technological innovation related to civilian uses of drones—from the hardware underpinning drones and new algorithms for controlling their flight to modifications allowing for new drone applications in areas that include agriculture, housing, forest preservation, surveillance and law enforcement. Hundreds of Israeli startups as well as established companies are gaining market share.

Yigal Arnon and Co. has honed its ability to assist and support drone technology companies with the specialized legal expertise needed to grow their businesses. Such expertise encompasses a broad range of matters, from sharing in-depth knowledge on export control regulations, civil aviation authority requirements, frequencies and liability to providing the traditional legal services required by growing companies.
