Israel Desk

FPS has been supporting a wide range of cross-border transactions between Germany and Israel for almost two decades.

We advise Israeli entrepreneurs, investors, financial institutions and companies looking to raise capital, develop markets, protect their intellectual property, make investments and leverage business opportunities in Germany. In cooperation with Israeli law firms, we also advise German companies looking to enter the Israeli market, partner with Israeli companies or tap into Israeli expertise. We regularly accompany high-ranking business delegations to Israel as well. This is one of the many ways we have developed a strong network of business contacts in both countries from which our clients can benefit. 

Our Israel Desk includes lawyers who have lived in Israel or have family ties there. This gives us in-depth understanding of Israeli business and legal culture. Our Israeli clients doing business in Germany have benefited greatly from our wide-ranging expertise and knowledge of the differences between the two countries in terms of legal structures, regulations and practices governing business operations. We advise a large number of Israeli clients in real estate, corporate and IP/IT matters. We believe that our long and successful track record with Israeli clients is largely thanks to this expertise and our strong commitment to Israel. 

Our Israel-related advisory work is focused on the following areas: 

  • Real estate transactions, including legal due diligence reviews
  • Regulatory compliance (e.g. GDPR)
  • The licensing and sale of technology
  • Protection of intellectual property, competition and copyright law issues, trademarks, utility models and design patents
  • Formation of companies, private equity, M&A and joint ventures
  • Tax structuring and project financing
  • Infrastructure and energy projects
  • Employment law
  • Aviation law
