Israel

     
       

Overview

The Israeli economy is among the highest per capita and fastest growing in the world. With its strong reliance on technological exports, Israel is poised for percentage growth that will outpace the United States and many other advanced markets for the balance of this decade and well beyond. Surely, the country’s impressive strides will continue to generate no shortage of legal issues. Wilson Elser’s Israel Practice helps companies doing business in and with Israel navigate this challenging terrain.

Insurance – including risk management and loss mitigation – forms Wilson Elser’s heritage and remains our greatest strength. The firm’s credentials in this space are unmatched, derived in large part from our long-standing association with the London Market – of considerable importance to Israeli businesses and insurers.

Insurance – including risk management and loss mitigation – forms Wilson Elser’s heritage and remains our greatest strength. The firm’s credentials in this space are unmatched, derived in large part from our long-standing association with the London Market – of considerable importance to Israeli businesses and insurers. Drawing on close ties within the Israeli business, legal and insurance communities and marshalling the vast resources of a large national firm and an even larger international alliance, we assist clients not only with commercial, corporate and cross-border transactional matters but also with insurance coverage, defense and litigation. We are frequently retained by Israeli companies to defend complex insurance claims – both individual law suits and class action – filed in North America.

Further, clients rely on our experience across every line of coverage and in virtually all industry sectors. These notably include health care, pharmaceuticals and medical devices, life sciences, cyber security and data privacy, technology, construction, gaming, hospitality, transportation and logistics, manufacturing and retail.

Regular visitors to Israel, members of the practice team are steeped in the country’s culture, industries and associated legal interests. The team’s effectiveness is further strengthened by our alliance with UK-based DAC Beachcroft, a fellow founding member of Legalign Global. We work closely with DACB’s Israel Desk to serve multinational clients with Israeli interests in a manner consistent with the two firms’ shared commitment to responsiveness and legal excellence. This unique collaboration allows insurance carriers, brokers, and their insureds and clients to work with a single resource, generating cost efficiencies and increasing the likelihood of successful outcomes.

Beyond the breadth and depth of our Israeli connections and relationships with DACB and other Legalign Global firms, the team offers more distinct advantages, including the collective “intellectual capital” of nearly 900 attorneys spread across 41 offices, which enables us to provide Israeli and other international clients with on-the-ground representation in or near most major U.S. markets. Finally, we enjoy an enviable record of winning as our clients define “win,” and always in keeping with their broader legal and business objectives.
