Israel

We place great importance on Israel and have a dedicated cross-departmental, global team which focuses on it.

Our Israel business development initiative includes a programme of regular visits to Israel to meet local law firms, banks, corporates and other institutions, as well as a programme of meetings in London and elsewhere with other Israel-facing market participants.

The team has up-to-date and in-depth knowledge and experience of the country’s history, economy and politics.

As a further indication of the importance of Israel to Allen & Overy, the firm has engaged an external consultant, Lee Noyek.  Lee is based in Israel and leads the firm’s business development initiatives in the country. Lee is an English law qualified solicitor, formerly with Allen & Overy’s London office. Having spent over a decade with the firm, Lee has a detailed knowledge of Allen & Overy and is well placed to assist clients with any queries about the firm.

Through Lee, we can also offer a local point of contact for our Israeli clients who are looking to expand their business globally. Equally, we are well placed to support A&O’s international clients who are interested in taking advantage of Israel’s innovator friendly business environment.

Neither Allen & Overy nor the lawyers in our Israel Global Markets Group are authorised to practise Israeli law. For advice on Israeli law, we work closely with the leading local law firms in Tel Aviv, with whom we have built up a close and collaborative relationship. Our common goal is to achieve the best outcome for our clients be that as lead international counsel or supporting Israeli firms leading on deals.
