We are absolutely thrilled to bring you the first ever Israel Desks League Tables, showcasing those law firms that are not only involved in Israeli deals and with Israeli clients, but also with a deep understanding of market trends, of their clients’ opportunities, and the challenges to overcome.

After an extensive period of meetings, data collection and analysis, we would like to thank more than a third of all Israel Desks around the worldfor submitting a range of deals in M&A, high-tech, VC and private equity, real estate, and more - all helping to showcase their immense expertise to a hungry Israeli audience with a healthy appetite for international deals.

With 2018 an impressively strong year in Israeli M&A, and the best year in terms of value since 2012, more international law firms were involved in M&A transactions relating to Israeli companies than ever before. In this inaugural Israel Desks League Tables, Allen & Overy, Freshfields, Latham & Watkins, Kirkland & Ellis and White & Case are among magic circle law firms and major U.S. powerhouses vying for an ever greater slice of the Israel market.
