In today’s fast-changing business world, clients value a global outlook as much as global experience. International law firm ZAG-S&W embodies both. With practices spanning the U.S., Israel, the UK and China, we offer clients access to lawyers who are well versed in local governing laws and regulations, as well as deep familiarity with the cultural and business environments in which they operate.
Furthermore, our seamless collaboration among our international offices brings clients an extensive network of contacts to help them move their businesses forward.
Our experience, knowledge, and connections have earned us loyalty from major domestic and international public and private companies, entrepreneurs, investors, funds and other professionals.
For more than three decades, we have focused on corporate and commercial law, combining professional service and innovation of the highest standards to provide the powerful impact our clients are striving for.
Founded in 1986, Zysman, Aharoni, Gayer & Co. (“ZAG”) has been a cutting-edge commercial law firm dedicated to the highest standards of service, professionalism, and innovation required by clients in today’s marketplace. Amidst challenging market conditions, we have been delivering on our promise to clients for more than 30 years, embracing innovation and entrepreneurship to help clients to fulfill their corporate goals and set new ones.
Supporting our diverse clientele on an array of complex domestic and international transactions, we recognized the need to provide an integrated range of global services and in 2001, we became a pioneer in the Israeli market, setting up a joint venture with major U.S. law firm Sullivan & Worcester to become ZAG-S&W.
From our Tel Aviv office, a central hub in our global offering, we advise on mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, private placements and public offerings, and much more, to provide the most strategic forward-thinking advice and help public and private companies, entrepreneurs and investors – in Israel and worldwide – to expand their businesses, in new and existing markets.
ZAG-S&W was established in 2001 through a unique joint venture of its founding firms, Zysman, Aharoni, Gayer & Co. (ZAG) and Sullivan & Worcester LLP (S&W). This innovative partnership created the world’s only truly Israeli-American law firm.
Our bilingual team of more than 200 lawyers in Israel and the U.S. provides integrated and cost-effective counsel on a range of matters, including forming joint ventures, debt and equity financings, tax, intellectual property, and much more.
We combine a deep understanding of the Israeli and U.S. markets with experience in bridging commercial, regulatory and legal differences to seamlessly deliver the powerful impact our clients are striving for.
ZAG-S&W has been active in China for more than a decade, advising on large and complex transactions, including governmental projects, in Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Guangzhou.
Prominent Israeli and international companies routinely turn to our expertise in addressing all legal and commercial aspects of doing business in China, and value our perspective and insight into Chinese culture and the regulatory environment.
Our team in China includes Chinese and Israeli lawyers who speak Hebrew, English and Mandarin, and have substantial experience in providing comprehensive legal advice to Israeli and international companies and investors.
The London office was established by Sullivan & Worcester, our U.S. joint venture partner. Widely recognized as a lucrative global hub, London is a key base from which the London lawyers advise clients with respect to their business activities worldwide, with a clear emphasis on emerging markets in Africa, Asia, the Commonwealth and Latin America.
The London team is at the forefront of trade and export finance, and brings experience in commercial banking, securitization, project finance, insurance, compliance programs, and dispute resolution.
