Hitech is, and is expected to remain, Israel's leading sector and the growth engine of its economy. Israel has been recognized as an international leader in technological entrepreneurship and development and is known as the "Startup Nation".
Representation of Hitech sector players requires profound knowledge and understanding of certain fields, such as special corporate law structures, intellectual property (which has special value for Hitech companies), corporate finance (as such companies are usually based on financing rounds), funds formation (funds often are constructed in a certain unique manner) M&A (as the goal of most such companies is an exit of some sort).
The firm represents startups of all stages, grown companies, venture capital funds, private equity funds and private investors, in a variety of Hitech fields, such as hardware, software, IT, fintech, security, communications, internet, Cleantech, medical devices and biotechnology. The firm has successfully represented many companies from early stage through exit, and advised them, among other things, with respect to their ongoing legal matters, intellectual property transactions, corporate finance deals and M&A. The firm's advice to its Hitech clients also includes the negotiation and drafting of licensing deals, intellectual property commercialization, R&D transactions, OEMs, distribution agreements, manufacturing contracts, joint ventures, NDAs, option plans, website terms and other complex as well as standard commercial transactions.
The firm has, thus, gained extensive experience with legal consulting to Hitech companies and investors, including regarding the foundation of funds.
