Gowling WLG has strong ties to Israel. Our firm has years of experience working in Israeli markets and maintains deep relationships with law firms, venture capitalists, investment banks and other influencers throughout the country.

Serving the innovators

Gowling WLG has a number of key offerings to meet shifting needs related to Israel, including: an award-winning blockchain team, a strong technology practice and a new unit devoted exclusively to startups.

These attributes give us a huge advantage when it comes to advising Israeli clients. The latter is critically important. In recent years, Israel has earned a global reputation for being a "startup nation." What's more, the international Bloomberg Innovation Index of 2021 ranked it the world's seventh-most innovative country. Israel is truly making waves on the world stage.

Leading the field in mergers and acquisitions

We do more merger & acquisition deals than any other firm, when it comes to Canadian M&A transactions, and possess significant experience listing Israeli companies on the TSX, TSXV and Canadian Securities Exchange. In 2022, Refinitiv (formerly Thomson Reuters) credited us with 207 global mid-market M&A transactions for a #20 ranking among all law firms worldwide. Furthermore, our global network creates opportunities for Israeli companies to succeed around the world. Notably, Bloomberg recently ranked Gowling WLG among the top 10 firms worldwide for both UK and global mid-market M&A.

Solutions for any situation

We are uniquely familiar with the greatest challenges facing our Israeli clients – raising capital, navigating IPOs and seizing merger and acquisition opportunities. We also know there is a shortage of skilled engineers and programmers in the labour market, and that tech companies are facing increasingly tight restrictions when it comes to operating in Europe.

From our offices spanning Canada, the UK, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia, we are strongly positioned to advise Israeli clients on these – as well as a range of other – issues from almost anywhere in the world. We also work closely with clients from other countries who are looking for new opportunities in Israel's growing market.
