Our two representatives in the United Kingdom, Lee Saunders (Head of English Content) and Galit Tassi (Submissions Department Manager), bring us up to speed with the newly published deadlines and updates for the upcoming Chambers Israel research.


This year there are three submission deadlines, with the addition of an early deadline in February 24th, which is the same day IFLR1000 is due. Luckily, there is an overlap in practices, which – if planned properly, can be seen as an advantage:

Updates and Insights:

After an exchange with Laurence Mussett, the new Research Manager overseeing the research on Israel, we want to bring you to your attention the following key points:

1)  With the high volume of submissions received for the Corporate/M&A category, they are CONSIDERING accepting submissions for the potential inclusion of a Corporate/M&A: Highly Regarded table – for those mid-market firms focused on the mid-market that have not yet been recognized in Chambers. 

2) As in last year’s last guide, you will only need to submit one submission per practice area but: 

Banking & Finance will include a Regulatory subtable; 
Corporate/M&A will include Fund Formation work; and
Labour & Employment will also include Employee & Trade Union work. 

Chambers do not need or want separate submissions for these subsections. Include these examples in the relevant main sections. 

3) Privacy & Data protection will be renamed IT & Data Protection and for the most part replace the old TMT: Tech table and will focus on work in the IT sector and data protection. 

4) Work in the tech sector should continue to be included in Corporate/M&A, while work for start-ups should be submitted in the Startups & Emerging Companies table.
