Our Hi Tech practice has been praised by the European Legal 500 as being: "Excellent: professional, with immediate responsiveness and strong depth". We advise on every commercial aspect over the business, financial, development and commercialisation life cycle of a Hi Tech company. Our clients operate in diverse fields, including financial algorithms, digital printing, telecommunications, media, gaming, components for vehicles, satellite communications, software and semiconductor chips.
At the seed stage, we advise founders and early stage companies on corporate structuring, technology licensing, founder agreements, employee incentive schemes, tax, obtaining and registering clear chain of IP title, government research and development grants, and, most importantly, preparing and successfully executing fund raising whether from angels or venture capital funds.
For our clients that are at a more developed stage, we advise on commercialisation of IP, collaboration, technology transfers, joint ventures and strategic alliances, further fund raising, management and exits (whether by way of M&A or an IPO) or growth. The firm is particularly strong acting for Hi Tech companies on their investment structuring at all points of their investment cycle and managing their commercial contracts.
With respect to our technology-based multinational clients, we act for them on their setting up of local subsidiaries, on all commercial aspects relating to their doing business in Israel as well as on collaborations with, and acquisitions of, Israeli Hi Tech companies. We are also one of the few firms in Israel with experience acting for multinationals on their setting up of government-funded research and development centres.
