Troutman Sanders’ Israel practice is composed of dedicated, experienced attorneys with deep knowledge of the legal and business issues facing Israeli companies. Our attorneys have spent extensive time in Israel, speak Hebrew, and are familiar with the country, its customs, and its business environment. In addition, firm attorneys have practiced law in Israel and have been admitted to the Israeli Bar. Our attorneys travel to Israel frequently, and provide counsel and advice to both Israeli companies in need of global representation, as well as non-Israeli entities interested in investments and other activities in Israel.

Our team is heavily involved in the operations of various for- and non-profit organizations that promote the growth and strength of U.S. / Israeli business and relations. Through this involvement, we have built strong relationships with many leading business people and organizations active in the Israeli market. These relationships allow us to connect our clients with those who can best provide effective and innovative solutions, providing significant advantages for our clients.

We pride ourselves on providing incisive, effective counsel to our clients and working closely with them to create a strategy that will produce desired outcomes in a timely and cost-effective manner. We are aware of the vast opportunities for growth the U.S. presents to our Israeli clients, and diligently pursue the avenues that will offer the most success.
