Technology Related Mergers and Acquisitions

Our firm represents a broad scale of Israeli and foreign clients in complex and high profile Israeli and cross border merger and acquisition transactions. We are well familiar with the representation of both potential acquirers as well as target companies, whether publicly or privately held.

 

We provide our clients with a full spectrum of expertise to such transactions, from the initial structuring and negotiation, through the due diligence, negotiation and drafting stage, and in connection with any other related advice on tax, labor and litigation issues, including the obtainment of any necessary regulatory approvals, such as anti trust, securities and tax rulings.

 

Having vast knowledge and experience in technology related mergers and acquisitions enables us to provide our clients unique and innovative solutions throughout the transaction. Many transaction structures, such as the reverse triangular merger, "squeeze out" transactions and various others are part of our firm's legal expertise, and are performed frequently.
