We are pleased to bring you the 3rd Israel Desks League Tables, showcasing those law firms that are not only involved in Israeli deals and with Israeli clients, but also with a deep understanding of market trends, of their clients’ opportunities, and the challenges to overcome.
After an extensive period of meetings, data collection and analysis, and a challenging 2020 for businesses, we would like to thank more than a third of all Israel Desks around the world for submitting a range of deals in M&A, high-tech, VC and private equity, real estate, and more – all helping to showcase their immense expertise to a hungry Israeli audience with a healthy appetite for international deals. With 2020 especially challenging, international law firms remained involved in M&A transactions relating to Israeli companies than ever before, with notable examples including the USD1. 4 Billion Innoviz SPAC merger.
We reviewed the firms’ submissions, collected feedback and votes from the highest-profile lawyers in Israel, and looked at factors including visits to Israel, local representatives, and relationships with domestic firms. This allowed us to identify those Leading, Prominent, Recognized, and Notable practitioners abroad, who take a proactive, instrumental and hands-on role with respect to Israel.
Find out how the magic circle, U.S. powerhouses and other major international law firms fared in this, the 3rd edition of Israel Desks League Tables, as they battled for a greater slice of the Israel market.
The full rankings and editorial will be uploaded to the website today, April 30th.
