Foreign Companies in Israel

Shimonov & Co. uniquely specializes in the representation of foreign companies seeking to offer securities to the Israeli public. The firm has a dedicated department that engages solely in the representation of foreign companies that have offered and are currently offering securities to the public in Israel. The firm represents the vast majority of U.S. real estate companies that have issued bonds in Israel, among them, large U.S. real estate corporations and well-known controlling shareholders that are ranked high on Forbes’ list of the world’s wealthiest individuals.

In 2019, the Firm has accompanied a groundbreaking and first-of-its-kind IPO Prospectus, when for the first time ever, a U.S. REIT with an UPREIT structure was introduced on the TASE to offer shares to the Israeli public (only), for which reason the Company underwent the full listing process in Israel and not a dual listing process.
