Startups

Having represented all players in the High Tech ecosystem, we have gained a profound understanding of the intricacies of the industry. We bring this insight to our representation and dealings with startups and entrepreneurs, while taking under consideration the challenging conditions experienced by an early stage venture.

Applying an interdisciplinary approach we act as strategic advisors to our clients, providing innovative solutions to their legal and business needs. We offer practical legal advice, sound business judgment and a unique ability to introduce clients to a cross-border network of investors and potential business partners.

Our team of experts counsels entrepreneurs on matters of formation, tax structuring, protecting intellectual property, employment issues and more. We have vast experience in all types of financing, from seed investments through subsequent venture capital financings and private placements, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, strategic alliances and international transactions.

Over the years, we have established long standing relationships with a network of local and international angels, venture capital firms and private equity funds, as well as several incubators and accelerators. These collaborations allow us to guide entrepreneurs in the process of developing their strategy, building the right relationships and accessing capital.

Our clients span across the entire high tech industry, from enterprise software, mobile, web, new-media, homeland security to clean-tech, life-sciences, medical devices and other sectors.

At APM & Co. we focus on taking an active role within the industry and regularly organize and participate in seminars and networking events. This is our way of providing the high tech community with a platform for sharing innovations and developments as well as connecting entrepreneurs, investors and key technology companies with one another.

In addition, we collaborate with the IATI (Israel Advanced Technology Industries) and others in the local high tech industry. We also publish periodic posts on legal issues related to technology companies in GeekTime, Israel's top technology portal, with which we have a strategic relationship.
