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.
