Practice Lawyers

The Start-up Nation has played a prominent role in research and innovation on a global scale in recent years. Israel has the highest number of startups per capita in the world, at around one start-up for every 1400 people. Ranking in the top five globally in worldwide patents and number one in scientific researchers per capita, Israeli companies and highly-skilled entrepreneurs often look to U.S. capital sources to finance their companies and commercialize their technologies. One statistic that demonstrates this is the fact that Israel has the third most NASDAQ listed companies after the United States and China. Leveraging our extensive experience in representing various parties in cross border corporate transactions, Hunter Taubman Fischer & Li provides counsel to Israel-based entities listing their securities and/or doing business in the US.

Located in the heart of the financial capital of the world, HTFL is well equipped to provide our Israel-based clients with the proper tools and resources to navigate the vast legal and regulatory landscape necessary to participate in the U.S. capital markets. Our suite of services for Israel-based clients includes representation for cross border financing and other corporate transactions, mergers and acquisitions, technology and innovation, corporate governance, immigration matters and intellectual property. From basic, standard transactions to complex matters, having the right attorneys that are both seasoned in international business transactions as well as intimately familiar with Israel and Israeli cultural norms is critically important.

As a boutique securities law practice, HTFL is able to offer flexibility and a level of attentiveness from our senior attorneys to any size Israeli company seeking to access the U.S. capital markets that is unparalleled by larger firms. Our Israel practice group team has deep and personal relationships with Israel and our team is proud to support the Israeli entrepreneurship ecosystem within the United States by providing exceptional representation, participating in event collaborations with Israeli companies and investors in those companies and through our Israel-supporting partnerships, memberships and affiliations.

Bridge to the U.S. Markets:

We believe that building relationships and guiding companies with high-level support from early in their lifespan is key to a successful exit. Our “Bridge to the US Markets” program provides early-stage Israeli companies with a comprehensive package of discounted services to guide them through their U.S. corporate transactions from as early as their pre-seed round until they are ready to prepare for an exit event. Within this program, our aim is to provide value beyond just legal representation by immersing participating companies in our larger professional network, hosting them for meetings and events, among other benefits. Contact us for more information.
