Fladgate has long-standing and widely acknowledged expertise in acting for Israeli companies and individuals seeking to expand into the UK market.
Our dedicated Israel team comprises a number of fluent Hebrew speakers, together with dual qualified lawyers, all of whom have in-depth legal and commercial knowledge of the Israeli and UK markets. Our track record of promoting bilateral trade between Israel and the UK spans 20 years.
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.
Our real estate team has advised extensively on 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-ranging tax advisory service including pre-sale and acquisition structuring, stamp duty, stamp duty land tax and VAT.
Our private capital team advises trustees with Israel-resident trust beneficiaries and Israel-based companies and individuals on structuring their acquisition of UK and worldwide 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. In addition, we are often instructed to deal with the estates of deceased family members who hold assets in multiple jurisdictions, including the UK and Israel.
