High Tech / Startups

We value the great importance of legal and business advice that is tailor-made for an individual startup’s needs. Such advice should take into consideration the unique challenges and requirements of each venture, including the operational, practical, and financing aspects.

Our firm provides quality legal services to startups, including ongoing support from the idea and development stage through to advising on a startup’s day-to-day activity. Counsel also covers investments, sale of the company, and IPOs. We support projects in a vast range of fields – cyber, fintech, e-commerce, AI, SAAS, food tech, medical devices, automotive, VR/AR, and more.

 

Legal advice includes formalizing the relationship between the entrepreneurs, designing the proper structure for the company (in Israel and abroad), preparing the company’s first agreements (clients, privacy, general terms, etc.), drafting options plans, and counseling on fundraising and investments. We also advise on communications with individual investors, funds, and accelerators and incubators, including drafting investment agreements, conducting negotiations, and executing investment transactions.

 

Supporting Startups in Investment Transactions

 

 

A startup’s ability to secure an investment depends on its legal and business preparedness. We provide legal services and hands-on guidance for entrepreneurs from as early as the initial idea stage. Our team studies the project’s area of activity and the market in which the project operates. It then collaborates with our tax, regulation, employment, antitrust, and securities and capital markets departments to identify the best solutions for the project to achieve its goals.

 

Thus, with close support from our team, our clients successfully progress to fundraising processes and securing government grants and incentives, all the way to merger and acquisition transactions and to exit or IPO.

 

In addition, we represent companies before the Israel Innovation Authority on matters of grants, funding tracks’ terms and conditions, permits for exporting technology outside of Israel (after receiving the grant), and more. This includes, inter alia, consultation on selecting the suitable track and the implications of the Israel Innovation Authority grant’s terms, as well as assistance in receiving the grant. We also aid companies seeking to change the nature of their activity and which are thus required to submit applications for sharing knowledge, exporting production or knowledge from Israel, and so on.

 

The Israeli Ecosystem

 

 

As part of our firm’s activity, we work closely with hubs, accelerators, and educational programs. Among the various entities are Tel Aviv University’s Center for Entrepreneurship; TAU Ventures, Tel Aviv University’s venture capital fund; IBM Alpha Zone, IBM’s accelerator program and Florida-Israel Business Accelerator (FIBA). We also work with StartOno, the entrepreneurship center at Ono Academic College; the Holon Institute of Technology; the Bengis Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation at Ben-Gurion University in Beer-Sheva; and more.
