The Start Up Nation boasts more innovation than virtually anywhere else, and the attorneys who comprise Cohen & Gresser’s Israel practice believe that deserves cutting-edge representation.
We represent clients in Israel doing business in the U.S. and international clients doing business in Israel, including public companies, early-stage and late stage private companies, and universities. Our clients work across Israel’s predominant industries including technology (both high tech and FinTech), biomaterials, defense, telecommunications, consumer products, agribusiness, and energy. Our solid grasp on Israeli culture and the Israeli business landscape combined with our legal knowledge and technical skills make us well-positioned to successfully advocate for our clients on a wide variety of cross-border matters.
We take pride in our multi-disciplinary team’s ability to collaborate cohesively to provide representation regarding a broad range of corporate transactions, patent, trademark and other IP-related matters, privacy and data protection matters, and regulatory, investigative, and white collar defense matters, among others.
