Our practice covers the wide range of interrelated and multifaceted legal and business challenges that companies encounter when operating in the international marketplace. The GKH Cross Border team serves Israeli and foreign clients with commercial and investment interests around the globe, advising on the full range of legal issues involved in cross-border and international business, including:
- • Ongoing Operational Matters and Commercial Agreements – we assist clients with the broad range of business relationships that affect their day-to-day operations, including executive compensation, labor and employment arrangements, commercial contracts, sales and distribution agreements, licensing agreements, product development agreements, and marketing alliances;
- • Strategic Initiatives – the multidisciplinary attorneys who make up our international and cross-border practice counsel clients on significant transactions crucial to expansion in the global marketplace, including strategic alliances, business combinations (mergers and acquisitions, stock and asset sales, management buy-outs), funding, international ventures and complex joint ventures;
- • Fundamental Conduct of Business – we support our clients in the areas of corporate governance, investor relations, internal investigations, government inquiries, and general counsel services.
Our strong ties in major business and legal communities outside of Israel such as California, London, Germany, South America, South East Asia and the ASEAN nations, paired with a deep legal understanding, years of experience and cultural agility, allow us to successfully guide our clients in these markets. In addition, many of our attorneys have acquired extensive experience assisting clients in specific geographic regions of the world. As a result, our attorneys are able to provide specialized knowledge when assisting clients venturing into or from particular jurisdictions.
Our deep knowledge of and strong connections to the Israeli business arena, based on decades of advising on leading business deals, enable us to offer superior legal services to multinational companies who have operations or interests in Israel which requires local legal attention.
