While the Coronavirus pandemic has been seared onto our lives for almost two years, business has slowly adapted and after tentative steps early on, the deals and transactions have continued, workplaces have adjusted. Challenges persist across all sectors, as well as for the law firms who represent them, but the Israeli private sector has weathered the storm in its typical resilient way.
According to an upcoming report by PwC Israel, acquisitions of Israeli companies have reached USD 9.5 billion so far in 2021, across 86 deals, almost double the value of acquisitions in 2020 when we were all facing the full onslaught of the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are excited to open the 4th edition of our IsraelDesks League Tables. With 2022 around the corner, never has it been more important to showcase your involvement in Israel.
As we did last year, we are asking law firms to complete a straightforward template and nominate their lead lawyers on the matters submitted so we can position leading individuals as market leaders.
The sectors include Energy & Infrastructure and Banking & Finance, High-Tech, and Real Estate, while we are looking for Israel-related M&A (volume and value), Capital Markets (volume and value – new), Employment, Litigation, Tax (new), Patents and IP matters.
The deadline to submit is January 18th.
The Publication date is April 2022.

The IsraelDesks League Tables are the only legal industry tables for global law firms with Israel desks, and the tables are valued by Israeli law firms and their clients. The tables recognize those law firms and lawyers advising on transactions and matters that involve Israeli clients and educate the local market as to where to send work abroad.
If you have any questions, technical or otherwise, relating to the submission, please feel free to email Lee Saunders at: email@example.com.
About Legally 100 – IsraelDesks League Tables:
The IsraelDesks League Tables are the only legal industry tables for global law firms with Israel desks, and tables valued by Israeli law firms and their clients. The tables recognize those law firms advising on transactions and matters that involve Israeli clients and educate the local market where to send work to abroad.
Whether Venture Capital financings, M&A or Capital Markets offerings, the objective of the pioneering IsraelDesks League Tables is to (1) showcase those global law firms with the interest, commitment and instructions in the Israeli market and (2) to use these tables to raise their profile before an extremely interested Israeli audience of lawyers, General Counsel and prospective clients.
The entering firm must be headquartered or have its head office outside of Israel.
You’re nominated transactions or matters must be either ongoing now or completed between January 1st, 2021 and December 31st, 2021.
How do I submit?
Free to enter, the process could not be simpler. There is a clear spreadsheet asking for minimal information about completed deals, which needs to be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 18th 2021.
How is it judged?
Our methodology is purely quantitative. All the submissions are collated and analysed and, after a league table is determined, the rankings are decided looking at the volume and value of matters.
Where will it be Published?
The IsraelDesks League Tables will be widely published across the Israel legal sector, by press, social media, direct mailing and in the US-Israel Legal Review 2022 (Click to see the previous edition featuring the tables: US-Israel Legal Reviews 2021).
