The "start-up nation" of Israel is a growing network of companies focused on capitalizing on global market opportunities, including entering or expanding in the U.S. market. To do so successfully requires a law firm with sophisticated expertise to ensure compliance in various legal areas, including regulatory and compliance litigation, tax, employment, and finance.
Lippes Mathias' multi-disciplinary Israel-U.S. Cross Border Practice Team guides Israeli companies and individuals with existing U.S. operations and seeks to establish commercial opportunities in the United States.
Our attorneys provide direction to successfully navigate the complex laws and government regulations that apply in the United States. Our Israel-U.S. Cross Border Practice Team is led by Dennis C. Vacco, the former New York State Attorney General, Partner, and Team Leader of the firm’s Government & State Attorneys General Investigations practice.
