There are an estimated 130 law firms with an Israel Desk, a striking 20% increase on the number of firms back in 2019.Withmore Israeli companies going global and a record-breaking 2021 in terms of transactions, investments, and capital raising, it is no surprise to see more global law firms involved for clients. This year, over 45 International law firms, with an Israel Desk submitted to Legally Israel 100 and we have 85 partners nominated for the various leading individual rankings. Compared to the previous year, we can see more matters and transactions across more practices and more sectors - a testament to the amount of work carried out by international law firms involved in Israel-related matters. As always, close to the market here, we remain agile and flexible and have added a new table for Tax, as well as a Value table for Capital Markets to sit alongside the many other categories. This is to reflect both those law firms that handle a large volume of general capital markets work, as well as those who are involved for issuers and underwriters in high-value equity and debt offerings. We reviewed the firms’ submissions, collected feedback and votes from the highest profile lawyers in Israel, and looked at factors including visits to Israel, local representatives, and relationships with domestic firms. This allowed us to identify those Leading, Prominent Recognized, and Notable practitioners abroad, who take a proactive, instrumental and handson role with respect to Israel. Law firms are ranked in order or volume or value but we have also introduced the new “Elite” rankings to showcase those who particularly stood out with the largest number of matters and those with the highest value matters in what is becoming a much more competitive and vibrant market.
