Looking for a firm? Let us help you
Fladgate LLP has successfully promoted bilateral trade between Israel and the UK for more than 20 years and our contribution has been recognised by the British-Israel Chamber of Commerce who presented us with an award in acknowledgement of our outstanding efforts.
In relation to capital markets matters, we have a long history of acting for Israeli companies raising equity, either through a listing on the London Stock Exchange’s main market or AIM market or through a dual quotation. We have strong links with fund managers who are looking to invest in Israeli companies and have experience of numerous market and product sectors. We are instructed both by companies seeking admission and by brokers seeking to raise money for such companies.
Example Israeli clients for whom we have undertaken capital markets work include iPoint Media, BATM Advanced Communications, Dori Media Group, Morria Biopharmaceuticals, DMAtek, Sadot and Zen Research. We have also advised a number Israeli companies on compliance issues in relation to the listing and regulatory requirements of the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange.
In addition to acting for a number of Israeli companies wishing to list in London, the firm’s real estate team has been heavily involved in transactions of all types and sizes for Israeli investors including pension funds, corporate bodies and private individuals. Our tax group underpins these property transactions by providing a wide tax advisory service including pre sale and acquisition structuring, stamp duty, stamp duty land tax and VAT planning. Example matters include advising Bank Hapoalim in respect of loans totalling in excess of US$500m for the hotel industry in the UK and acting for an Israel based entrepreneur on the financing and acquisition of the iconic Camden Market in London, for an enterprise value in excess of £400m.
Our private capital team advises trustees with Israel resident trust beneficiaries and Israel based companies and individuals who want to structure their acquisition of UK assets appropriately. We advise on all aspects of the retention and transfer of family wealth within the UK and on related UK taxes, such as UK Inheritance Tax, Capital Gains Tax and the Annual Tax on Enveloped Dwellings. We are often instructed to deal with the estates of deceased family members who hold assets in multiple jurisdictions, including the UK and Israel.
We have a large Israeli client base and our clients’ legal requirements are handled in the knowledge that we possess the requisite expertise, multilingual capacity and appreciation for their business. Members of the team are in Israel at least monthly and are available for meetings at short notice.
