Avi Goldsobel


Avi Goldsobel has been a practicing lawyer in Israel since 1976 and is a partner in the Goldsobel & Kirshen law firm.

Versed in tax consequences for newly formed companies, he has been involved in forming start-ups and working with them up to the stage of Initial Public Offering, and has been instrumental in negotiating investment contracts for many of his corporate clients. Prior to his departure to the US, Avi represented several industrial companies, Kibbutz industries and certain foreign activities of the Eizenberg Group (Israel/ US/ Mexico twin plant ventures).

Avi was a founder of Venture Israel, one of the earlier venture funds in the country, as well as establishing a start up program for the Technion and a Chief Scientist sponsored incubator, which, at the beginning of the '90s was set up for new immigrants. This program became a powerful device for commercializing intellectual property. Indeed, he has developed a highly recognized IP practice, dealing with both the commercial and technical aspects of intellectual property law.

Avi was practicing law for a period of two years with the law firm of Arnold & Porter in Washington D.C. where he was engaged, among other things, in business development programs, US/ Israel Treaty, trade treaties (Free Trade Area treaty) and setting up US activities for foreign companies and US Federal Government incentives. Avi continues to maintain a working relationship with Arnold & Porter and is a member of its international network.

Avi also lectures on business aspects of technology ventures at the Haifa University Law School and is a member of the U.S./Israel Joint Committee of Intellectual Property.
