We are pleased to bring you the 6th Israel Desks League Tables, showcasing international law firms that are major destinations for Israeli clients, and are a hub of valuable experience in Israel-related deals. Today, there are approximately 160 law firms with an Israel Desk, a striking 20% increase from the number of firms back in 2019.

While 2023 was undoubtedly plagued with challenges from judicial reforms and the subsequent protests to the start of a war, the Israeli traits of resilience, innovation, and boldness have shone brightly in the commercial and legal sphere, as much as elsewhere. Already in 2024, there are encouraging signs of economic solidarity with many countries, funds being raised, transactions being completed, and joint ventures being formed. This strength out of adversity is underlined by the data showcased in the latest Israel Desks rankings.

With ranked law firms ranging from magic circle firms and global powerhouses to smaller boutiques and new entrants, we have over 50 lawyers who shine across 11 practice areas and industry sectors, a testament to the amount of work carried out by international law firms involved in Israel-related matters.

As a regular fixture in the rankings, we continue to have both Value and Volume tables for M&A and Capital Markets to reflect those law firms that handle a large volume of general corporate and capital markets work, as well as those who are involved in high value transactions and offerings. Law firms are ranked in order of volume or value but our “Elite” ranking spotlights those who particularly stood out with the largest number of matters and those with the highest value matters in what remains a competitive and vibrant market.

We reviewed the firms’ submissions, collected feedback and votes from the most prominent lawyers in Israel, and looked at various factors, such as on-the-ground representatives, relationships with domestic firms, and, where possible, visits to Israel. This allowed us to identify those Leading, Prominent, Recognized, and Notable practitioners abroad, who take a proactive, instrumental, and hands-on role with respect to Israel. Furthermore, with such a huge raft of lawyers involved, those lawyers referenced in the editorial are recommended in Israel Desks rankings.

Congratulations to all!
