Recognized as a leader in the field of Fund Formation, our expertise and wide perspective allow us to offer counsel on all fund related legal matters. We structure, organize and represent a diverse range of private-investment funds for top venture capitalists and private equity firms.

Our vast experience as well as our broad perspective and business acumen, allow us to offer fund managers valuable insight on all aspects of fund formation, including: fund terms and structuring, tax planning, local and cross-border fund raising and investor negotiations.

At APM & Co. we also have considerable experience representing institutional and private investors in their investments in local and international funds. This provides us with a broad perspective on various issues, such as the investment climate, the appetite and preferences of various investors, the market's direction and how a fund’s terms compare to other funds. These insights have proven highly valuable in optimizing our clients' position for fundraising, investment and other integral activities.

With the knowledge and subtlety required to harmonize and balance the demands of all parties, our team liaises and bridges the gap between the requirements of Israeli and foreign investors, as well as those of the limited partners and fund managers.
