Foreign Businesses Need a Commercial Law Firm in Israel

By: Adv. Eli Shimony

Want to invest money from your business into an Israeli company? Thinking about Investing in Israel? This has been a popular source of investment for more than a decade now, with more and more businesses starting to look to Israel for investment opportunities. However, investing in an Israeli firm is not always as easy as it is with a local business, and some companies in the US and Europe are finding themselves in legal difficulties after their investment in Israel. Without employing a specialist commercial law firm in Israel, businesses are leaving themselves open to lawsuits and even to fraud investigations.

Why choose Commercial Law Firm in Israel?

Whenever you are investing in an overseas company, it is important that you understand the business law of that company’s nation. You must also understand the business law of your own country regarding investment in foreign businesses. Your own legal firm is likely to be able to advise you on the best way to protect yourself in your own country, but when it comes to finding support outside your own country, a professional lawyer with experience in overseas business law will be best. Most investors choose a lawyer from the country of their overseas investment, so for a company looking to invest in an Israeli business, a commercial law firm in Israel would be the best way to protect your investment.

How an Israeli legal firm can help a company.

The law in Israel is complicated for outside firms not used to working in the field of Israeli business. This can mean that they become confused concerning the many rules and regulations required for their company, and also that they may create contracts that don’t work in Israeli law. Often, the legal requirements placed on outside businesses are not clear to foreign companies, and they make mistakes that could leave them open to legal action or even criminal charges. Employing an experienced commercial law firm in Israel is the best way to defend your investment while still ensuring that you are within Israeli business law.

Defending your business in Israel.

If you invest in an Israeli business, then the chances are quite high that you will become involved in a lawsuit connected to your investment. Israeli staff members may sue you as part of a wider lawsuit against their company, and customers or those who have suffered as a result of actions by the Israeli company may also name you in the lawsuit. When this happens, foreign investors need to defend themselves in an Israeli court, and this often means using an Israeli attorney in the courtroom. All businesses must have a lawyer present in court, and so even foreign businesses must nominate someone to help defend them during legal proceedings.
