Yigal Arnon & Co. represents various Israeli and foreign companies, both private and publicly traded, in some of the most important, complex and largest transactions in Israel’s history. In several cases, our team developed an innovative transaction model, implementing strategies never before used in Israel and paving the road for others to follow. Over our many years of practice, we have accrued extensive and in-depth knowledge, which is made available to our clients. Thanks to the firm’s size, we can put together large M&A teams with all relevant expertise in order to meet even the tightest schedules. Simultaneously with the giant, high-profile transactions, in which we usually represent multinational corporations that acquire Israeli companies, our firm also handles medium-size M&As involving such parties as hi-tech and startup companies and traditional industries. The firm advocates work in multidisciplinary teams, including lawyers who specialize in corporate, securities, regulation, labor, tax, antitrust and, if necessary, litigation. This way, we can provide our clients with the full range of knowledge and expertise required to cover all aspects of the transactions, thoroughly and efficiently. The firm’s M&A clients include industries, service companies, banks and hi-tech and startup companies. We have extensive experience handling all deal structures and sizes, including acquisition of public and private companies, mergers and reverse mergers, share swaps, mergers that require court approval and asset sales. The firm specializes in cross-border mergers, namely, transactions in which multinationals purchase Israeli companies.
All businesses have multiple interfaces with regulation, across all their fields of activity. Thanks to the firm’s longstanding experience with the various regulators, our team has developed expertise in all areas of commercial regulation, including the capital market, financial services, hi-tech, telecom, and infrastructure, to name a few. We offer our clients ongoing consultation on regulatory matters, tapping into the vast knowledge we have acquired, both in theory and in practice. Thanks to this support, our clients can safely submit tender bids, issue securities, buy and sell companies that are subject to specific regulation, plan their steps and conduct business in Israel free of unwanted surprises. Our lawyers’ knowledge of the regulatory setting and their experience on the ground with the various government ministries and other regulators, enable the firm to provide clients with comprehensive, tailor-made solutions.
