Educated in Israel, the US and Amsterdam, I am a member of the New York  and Israel Bars, and an international lawyer since 1986. I have lived and practiced law in the US for years, based in Amsterdam since 1991, and co-managing our Israel office since 1998.

My experience lies with cross border transactions, helping clients and colleagues bridge the legal culture gaps. I have done transactions and acted for clients in all parts of the world and in numerous industries: technology, pharmaceutical, real estate, energy, finance, various manufacturing and more. 

My network of colleagues and friends is widespread, and my practice concentrates on seeking practical solutions in complex environments. I enjoy the legal practice yet  mostly the people of all cultures I encounter. I look for the joy of the practice and the position of win-win solutions that bring parties together, while using creativity and out of the box solutions. I truly believe that as a lawyer I can act in the best interest of my clients with openness and an eye for the position of all parties. That often results in the best possible solutions for my clients.
