Our Israel practice consists of a team of skilled, multilingual lawyers who understand and have experience of Israeli business and culture

We are delighted to expand our international presence by opening an office in Israel.  The Israeli insurance market is large and mature, with a number of domestic financial conglomerates. Most large risks are reinsured overseas, often directly into the London and US markets. As such, Israel is a natural marketplace for us and our clients.

Our Israel practice consists of a team of skilled, multilingual lawyers (including Hebrew speakers and Israeli qualified lawyers) who understand and have experience of Israeli business and culture. We aim to give rapid and practical legal advice tailored to your needs. We provide our London and international insurer clients with insurance and reinsurance coverage advice as well as monitoring, claims administration, management and coordination services relating to Israeli risks.
