Who's Who Legal Corporate: Merger & Acquisition

One of Israel’s leading mergers and acquisitions attorneys, name partner Sharon Amir is the head of Naschitz, Brandes, Amir & Co’s M&A practice and a formidable force in the Israeli M&A market. Amir specialises in international cross-border M&As, the formation of private equity funds (including venture capital, venture lending, mezzanine and buyout funds) and the representation of such funds in their ongoing operations and investment and divestment transactions.

Mr Amir trained in Australia (LLB, the University of New South Wales in Sydney), Israel (LLB, Tel Aviv University’s faculty of law) and the US (LLM in taxation, New York University) and has over 25 years of experience. He has advised on some of Israel’s largest and most sophisticated and complex international M&As, such as Frutarom’s US$7.2 billion acquisition by IFF; EzChip’s US$811 million merger with Mellanox; Waze’s acquisition by Google; the sale of a US$630 million control block in Ormat Technologies; and many more, including over 100 acquisitions and divestments by FIMI, Israel’s largest and most active PE fund. He has been involved in the structuring and representation of some of the largest venture capital, buyout and other investment funds operating in Israel. His clients include numerous investment funds, and public and private companies (both local and multinational).

Prior to joining Naschitz, Brandes, Amir & Co, Mr Amir clerked for the Israel Supreme Court (Justice S Netanyahu), and spent several years working as a corporate and tax attorney with the New York office of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom.

WWL says: Sharon Amir is praised by clients as "an excellent M&A lawyer who is very strong on detail and can see the entire picture".
