The acclaimed Hi-Tech department at Naschitz Brandes Amir provides strategic legal counsel to private and public high-tech and bio-tech companies with respect to all aspects of their businesses. Placing great emphasis on combining sophisticated legal services with business advice, Naschitz Brandes Amir represents entrepreneurs and hi-tech companies from early-stage ideas, advising on optimal legal and capital structures for the formation of an entity.  Naschitz Brandes Amir guides its clients through the early stages of the business cycle, dealing with matters that have significant long-term implications, such as formulating a strategy for the protection of intellectual property and setting up employment procedures and employee equity incentive plans.  As such, not only does the firm advise large multinational Fortune500 corporations and most of Israeli's venture capital community, but it has also developed unique expertise in early-stage hand-holding for startups.

As the client’s business grows, Naschitz, Brandes advises on financings, licensing agreements, strategic partnerships, joint development arrangements and other joint ventures, and acquisitions.  Over the years, Naschitz Brandes Amir has negotiated strategic agreements on behalf of its clients with substantially all major multinational hi-tech companies.  The Hi-Tech department works hand in hand with the firm’s intellectual property specialists, which represent clients in transactions and disputes involving trademarks, copyrights, patents, counterfeiting, rights of privacy and publicity, trade secrets and unfair competition.

Naschitz Brandes Amir is proud to have represented Israel's most prominent hi-tech companies from their formation and onwards as they mature towards an "exit" (IPO/acquisition) or continue as significant global public companies. Such companies include Check Point (Nasdaq: CHKP), EZchip (Nasdaq: EZCH), Provigent (acquired by Broadcom), dbMotion (acquired by Allscripts) and Plus500 (LSE: PLUS).
