GREENBERG IN TEL AVIV
07 Dec, 2011
Greenberg Traurig is set to open an office in Tel Aviv next month, making it the first US law firm to establish an Isreali on-ground presence.
Global corporate and securities chair Gary Epstein will help to launch the new office, and will be joined in the future by experienced lawyers from the US and the UK.
Greenberg’s existing Israeli clients include OrSense, Teva Pharmaceutical Industries, Beeologics, Redhill Biopharma, Fortissimo Capital, Lumenis and Gazit-Globe.
According to Law.com, Greenberg CEO Richard Rosenbaum said: “Mostly we have gone where our clients and our business have strategically taken us [Israel] is an example.” He added: “It’s not something on every firm’s list of places they want to be, but for us it made sense.”
