ZEK has a strong connection with Israel dating back to 2005, when two of its attorneys, Stuart Krause and Bruce Goodman, presented a successful arbitration and litigation professional seminar in Israel, resulting in several Israeli business contacts, some of which are current clients of the firm. Today, ZEK maintains a full time foreign attorney office in Tel Aviv.
Several of the firm’s attorneys have dominant Israeli backgrounds, having lived and practiced law in Israel for many years; while others visit Israel multiple times every year, have a deep network of Israeli legal and business contacts throughout the country, and are conversant in Hebrew.
In light of ZEK’s growing Israeli operations, the firm has developed a unique Israel group, comprised of attorneys with vast working experience with Israeli clients and two resident counsels, one of whom is special counsel to ZEK. The attorneys in the Israel group have developed a cutting-edge practice in areas that are in demand by both US and Israeli businesses and individuals, including:
- Cybersecurity and E-discovery
- Internet Privacy
- Corporate and Securities Law
- Intellectual Property and Trademark Law
- Real Estate
- Commercial Litigation
- Insurance Law
- Trust and Estates
- Restructuring and Bankruptcy
The attorneys in the Israel group work closely together and draw on each other’s expertise and deep knowledge of the Israeli legal practice, business, culture, in a collaborative effort to best achieve the needs of ZEK’s valued US and Israel clients.
ZEK maintains an office in Tel Aviv to better service its US clients operating in Israel and existing Israeli clients. The office serves as the focal point of the Israel Group’s practice, and a strong base for the establishment of relationships with additional Israeli businesses, government contacts, and individuals.
