In recent years, African countries have become significant target markets for Israeli businesspeople. Thanks to economic growth, a surge in GDP, international sources of finance, natural resources, a cheap workforce, and the willingness of political regimes to open their doors to foreign companies and investments, certain African countries have become especially attractive.
The Africa Department at law firm Hamburger Evron & Co. is a unique department in Israel’s legal practice market, providing comprehensive legal services for businesspeople operating in Africa. The extensive legal support the firm provides its clients enables them to handle varied and complex issues in both business and legal terms.
The Africa Department is headed by partner Steven Berelowitz, who is an expert in international transactions and projects and ventures abroad.
Adv. Berelowitz engages in comprehensive legal activity that covers all aspects of commercial law. At the same time, he also maintains an extensive network of contacts with businesspeople, organizations and corporations in emerging markets around the world, including on the African continent where he was born.
The Department’s activity includes representation of a mix of commercial companies, organizations and businesspeople on the medley of issues related to their business ventures. The firm’s Africa service is used by clients from a variety of sectors, including energy and infrastructure, finance, agriculture, defense and security systems, cyber security, and more.
The Africa Department is founded on knowledge and expertise accumulated in the international commercial arena, complemented by the broad experience and working relations the Department’s team members have forged in Africa with local businesspeople, law firms, and figures in the Jewish community. This network of contacts provides the client added value and a relative advantage.
