Legal Services

Today, the law firm of Goldsobel and Kirshen is a leader in its core practice areas and offers consultation on a variety of legal and business-related issues:

Corporate                                                                                                                                                 Our legal team has successfully completed many large-scale international mergers, acquisitions and investment agreements involving hundreds of millions of dollars between leading Israeli companies and foreign conglomerates. We advise corporate clients in managing their day-to-day legal issues, such as employment matters, stock option plans, technology disclosures, relations between board and management, civil litigation, real estate transactions, relationships with governmental and municipal authorities, and regulatory affairs. We have also applied our common-sense approach tempered by commercial pragmatism to advising companies undergoing economic difficulties, thereby contributing to their economic survival and turn-around.

Life Sciences                                                                                                                                           Tougher competition and the strengthening of ties between institutions of higher learning, industry and the world of commerce has resulted in our becoming actively involved in many problematic legal aspects of the biotechnology industry. For example, in the development of materials and organs derived from human embryonic cells, complex legal issues concerning 'substantial transformation', patent infringement and patent interference have to be considered and handled appropriately. The drafting and negotiation of material and technology transfer agreements is another area in which we have achieved high proficiency. In this regard, our office led successful negotiations on behalf of the Technion R&D Foundation and Rambam Hospital to obtain rights to stem-cell technology patents of Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation.

Our firm is a leader in science technology. In addition to lawyers and paralegals, our team includes a full-time scientific advisor in the field of life sciences. We also maintain close scientific ties with leading universities and research institutes abroad, such as NIH, MIT and FHG, Germany.

Commerce - We have assisted public and private companies alike in establishing joint ventures and executing commercial transactions such as marketing, sale, distribution and OEM agreements while applying our knowledge of local and international taxation and drafting financial documentation. We have led negotiating teams in major government procurements throughout the USA, the Far East and Europe.

Intellectual Property - By representing technology incubators, the Technion R&D Foundation and high-tech companies, we have acquired unrivaled experience in examining and advising on intellectual property issues. This frequently makes us the firm of choice in those increasingly common cases where IP assets are at the crux of the deal.

Institutions of Higher Learning - The representation of such institutions has become an additional office expertise. We have assisted them in the establishment of their institutional and corporate organs, the protection and commercialization of their intellectual property and the creation of incentive plans for their academic research staff.
