The firm's attorneys have extensive understanding of both the process and the documentation of venture capital and private equity financings, enhancing our ability to assist clients in accomplishing their business objectives in a timely and efficient manner. Adding to our effectiveness is our experience in fund formation, secondary transactions, venture lending and mergers and acquisitions. This provides us with additional insight into the standards by which venture capitalists and private equity professionals assess investment opportunities, the types and terms of securities involved as well as the dynamics of diverse investor groups. Our representation of companies receiving investments and loans gives us the wisdom of the other side's perspective in these transactions, enabling us to close deals efficiently and amicably. Yigal Arnon & Co. represents prominent Israeli and overseas venture capital and private equity funds as well as strategic corporate investors in their portfolio investments in Israeli and “Israel-related” companies. The size and breadth of our portfolio investment practice together with our large startup practice provides us with a broad view of market trends allowing us to advise on evolving market trends as they develop.  The experience of our team and our approach ensures that clients, whether Israeli or non-Israeli, enjoy the highest international standard of professionalism and responsiveness.

Fund Formation and Services

Yigal Arnon & Co. acts as counsel in venture capital and private equity fund formation and maintenance, representing general partners, fund anchors and sponsors, funds of funds and limited partners. The firm provides practical and timely corporate, tax and general legal advice that enables clients to raise private equity and venture capital funds as quickly as the market will allow. Our international networks enable us to work effectively with U.S., European or off-shore legal counsel to advise on Israeli tax and regulatory issues when the need arises, both during and after the fund formation process. Yigal Arnon & Co. has been at the cutting edge of developments in the burgeoning Israeli venture capital scene from the formation of the initial wave of Israeli venture capital funds formed with government assistance in the early 1990s, to the development and formation of innovative accredited crowd funding platforms and TTO-related funds in the last few years. We like to think of ourselves as the fund lawyers’ lawyers, able to help investment professionals create innovative fund structures. In addition to venture capital and private equity funds, Yigal Arnon & Co. represents funds formed to invest in real estate (primarily in the United States) and hedge funds, both fund side and investor side, in conjunction with local counsel.

Venture Lending

Yigal Arnon & Co. has acted as counsel in many venture lending and debt financing transactions. We regularly represent venture lenders and financial institutions both in Israel and across the globe, and have a reputation for solving complex cross-border issues. Our practice includes diverse types of secured, unsecured, mezzanine and other loan transactions, including secured and unsecured credit facilities, asset-based lending and workout loans. As company counsel to high-tech companies in various stages of development, we also frequently represent the borrowers and debtors, which gives us added insight into these types of transactions. We frequently advise on issues relating to insolvency, regulatory compliance, tax and securities laws as they relate to Israeli related credit facilities. With extensive connection within the industry, we are a valuable source of knowledge for non-Israeli investors and financial institutions which require a clear and concise understanding of the complexities that surround Israeli law in these types of cross-border transactions, which can be quite different from the "home" jurisdictions of these lenders.

The Group has provided advice on a number of M&A transactions that involve complicated legal issues and sophisticated and complex technology. Yigal Arnon & Co. represents many early-stage clients and therefore, the Technology and Transactional IP Group is very familiar with the latest trends and cutting edge technology, as well as customary commercial practices and commercialization models. We are experts in drafting and negotiating commercial terms and contracts that protect our clients' intellectual property and other interests. This assists many of our early-stage clients who seek to bring their products to market. In addition, members of our practice Group have extensive experience with issues related to the Israeli R&D Law and working with the IIA - Israeli Innovation Authority (previously the Office of the Chief Scientist). Since many Israeli technology companies often receive IIA funding for development work at some point in time, this expertise is valued by our clients. Our firm implements a comprehensive and collaborative team approach to provide the full range of legal services that are critical to complex cross-border transactions, including our Tax and Anti-Trust Practice Groups. Our contacts with leading foreign law firms enable us to obtain input on global regulatory, distribution, competition and data protection legal issues where necessary.

Our expertise in corporate and securities law and in tax and labor law, help us define the optimal incentive mix for employees of local and multinational companies. In the latter case, we sometimes use our good connections with leading law firms in other jurisdictions and work together with them to provide multinational clients with the optimal package. We advise on matters such as hiring, severance, termination and other labor issues, including in the context of public offerings, M&As, joint ventures, internal restructuring and spinoffs. The firm recognizes the necessity for a balance between a successful employee incentive plan that allows employees to grow at the workplace, and the flexibility that is required in order to manage a profitable and successful business. We therefore offer clients advice that is tailored to their needs, taking into account different elements such as the client’s size, business sector, goals and policy.

R&D Law, Regulation and Governmental Grants (Israel Innovation Authority)

The firm has significant experience with issues related to the Israeli R&D Law and working with the Israel Innovation Authority ("IIA") (previously known as the Israeli Office of the Chief Scientist), including the center for international cooperation in R&D in the industry (Matimop) and IIA-supported Technological Incubators.  Since many Israeli technology companies receive IIA funding and other governmental grants for research and development work, this expertise is highly valued by our clients.

Software

Open Source Licenses

Use of open source licenses has gained popularity over the last few years, and open source code is now used in many software products. Since open source licenses usually contain special terms and restrictions, licensing is a key parameter in considering if and how to use such code, and may have major financial implications. Yigal Arnon & Co. consults a range of software clients, assisting them in protecting their intellectual property, avoiding violation of third-party rights and eliminating the possibility that third parties could lawfully use their code. Our team has extensive experience in drafting software license agreements, and specializes in complex software ventures.

Drones

Traditionally, drones were considered the domain of the Israeli defense industry and, as such, were dominated by the major Israeli defense companies. In the last few years however, the Israeli market has witnessed a surge in technological innovation related to civilian uses of drones: from the hardware underpinning drones, new algorithms for controlling their flight, to modifications allowing for new drone applications in agriculture, housing, forest preservation, surveillance, law enforcement and more. Hundreds of Israeli startups as well as established companies are gaining market share in this new field. Yigal Arnon and Co. has honed its capability to assist and support drone technology companies with the unique legal expertise needed to grow their business.

Internet of Things

Thanks to the progress in sensor development and to the reduction in their size and cost, we now have billions of small devices all around, transmitting and receiving information to and from computers that process this information into products. In this IoT era, we are constantly online, and information about us is received and analyzed. This of course is subject to regulatory requirements. Our lawyers have the capabilities needed to provide the legal counseling needed by data protection, privacy protection cybersecurity ventures, allowing them to focus on their technology, knowing that they are in compliance with all regulatory requirements and that all of their commercial and corporate needs are well taken care of.

3D Printing

While 3D printing was invented years ago, the most significant technological breakthrough in this field took place over the last few years. Once exclusively in the realm of large corporations, manufacturing has now become commonplace. The firm works with 3D printing innovators on matters such as copyrights and design rights, third party liability, regulation and compliance, financing and commercial agreements.

Food and Agricultural Technology

The Yigal Arnon & Co. practice area in food and agricultural technology is growing alongside the burgeoning Israeli "food-tech" and "ag-tech" eco-system. In the last few years global and local Israeli investment in the sector has been expanding as fluctuations in global food supply, environmental factors and population growth have created stress across the food value chain. Israeli companies have been global leaders in technologies designed to increase efficiency and reliability in food production, especially in the important fields of precision agriculture, irrigation technology, and plant genetics. Yigal Arnon & Co. has developed a core strength in these areas, providing expert legal counsel and services on issues of regulation, investments and capital raising (foreign and Israeli VC, angel investors, Israeli Innovation Authority etc.), joint ventures, intellectual property protection and commercialization and M&As.

Internet, Digital and Mobile

We offer them wall-to-wall services, including all aspects that ventures of this kind may need: corporate formation and maintenance, data and privacy protection, corporate governance, licensing agreements, commercial agreements, terms of use, and consultation on regulatory and issues.

Digital Marketing

Digital marketing has been undergoing a technology evolution. Where 10 years ago, the social networks were born, giving rise to a new era of online advertising, Internet advertising is now more technological and complex than ever. We represent and provide legal services to clients across the range of advertising activities, including advertising and creative agencies, RTB (real time bidding), retargeting, ad exchanges, and more, offering each client the advice suitable to the advantages and challenges inherent to its role in the industry and to the technology that it uses. 

Emerging Technologies

The fast pace of technology mandates specific expertise in the legal and regulatory aspects of emerging technologies. Our lawyers monitor these technologies, study recent global developments and participate in leading conferences. We have acquired specialized knowledge in various sectors, including:

Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence is an exciting and rapidly evolving field, which is likely to influence many spheres of our life. Some examples of artificial intelligence uses include autonomous cars, medical AI systems, behavior prediction algorithms, crime and terrorism detection, and more. Our lawyers keep abreast with the field, and have knowledge of machine learning, deep learning and cognitive computing technologies. In this era in which the law is lagging behind the technology, our firm provides legal advice, including with respect to existing regulation, legal-risks analysis, a review of current practices, and formulation of legal solutions to contend with the gap between current regulation and the possibilities represented by AI products.

Virtual and Augmented Reality

These are two more areas that are entering into almost (not to say virtually) every walk of our lives: gaming, medicine, cars, and more. These technologies give rise to new legal dilemmas pertaining to product safety, torts, third party property rights, data collection and privacy. We counsel our clients from the development stages on, to make sure they comply with the legal obligations stemming from these kinds of uses, in addition to “ordinary” corporate services such as investment rounds and commercial contracts with clients and partners.

Smart Cities

A smart city is based on sensors that can provide information about what is happening in the city, and on a command and control center that can process the information and enable decision-making that correlates with the information. Smart cities give rise to legal questions regarding public safety, privacy, real estate, tenders and administrative law, all areas in which Yigal Arnon has many years of experience and dedicated teams of lawyers, and can therefore provide across the board services.

Legal Technologies

Legal technologies include systems and products aimed at improving and streamlining legal services and processes and making them more readily available to lawyers, clients, and the public at large. Some of these enterprises are intended to improve and streamline the management of law firms and legal departments. Such technologies include ERP systems, some cloud-based, and are supported by sophisticated AI. Their purpose is to harmonize and synchronize all administrative aspects of law firm management: information management, sharing and communication – internally and with clients, project and case/client management, accounting, etc. Other systems improve and streamline legal work that in the past had to be performed by certified professionals or took a very long time, including discovery, data analysis, automated disclosure, generation of contracts and documents, case management, legal research, online legal services, contract management, etc. Yigal Arnon & Co. have the know-how that legal technology companies need, which, in addition to thorough understanding of the legal needs of startup companies, includes also in-depth knowledge of the needs, requirements, capabilities and limitations of the substantial offering of these companies – the world of law.

The firm assists companies that develop homeland security products, including anti-terrorism. The firm provides legal services in connection with product development, intellectual property protection, encryption, Defense Ministry approvals, defense export controls, dual use technologies, business-to-government (B2G) transactions and government-to-government (G2G) ancillary transactions.

Medical Cannabis  

Yigal Arnon & Co.’s practice area in the field of medical cannabis is expanding as both Israeli and international regulation continues to evolve rapidly towards increasing openness to medicinal (and in some cases recreational) cannabis, and as local and global investment in the sector is increasing. Israel has long been recognized as a world leader in medical cannabis research and development, as well as in cannabis-related technological innovation.  Over the last few years, Israel’s lawmakers and regulators have been working to create an increasingly supportive environment to facilitate the growth and international scaling of Israeli medical cannabis companies. Yigal Arnon & Co.’s Medical Cannabis Group closely follows the changing regulatory and business environment both here in Israel and internationally, enabling it to give up to date expert advice to the key companies and investors involved in the sector as well as to those looking to enter this exciting and expanding industry.
