Einat Meisel’s clients range from seed-stage emerging growth companies to mature global companies in diverse technology sectors, including security, mobile, cloud, software, media, social, gaming and life sciences. She is a recognized leader in cross-border corporate and transactional matters involving Israel. She advises international clients on their investments and operations in Israel, as well as Israel-based clients on their cross-border growth, financing and transactional matters.
Einat advises clients on venture capital financings, business combination transactions, public offerings and private placements, spin-outs, recapitalizations, and joint ventures and strategic alliances. She also handles formation, founder-related matters, seed investments and venture capital financings for early-stage companies, and continues to represent these companies in various matters, including later-stage financings, strategic transactions and corporate governance matters as they mature into large global entities. Einat understands the legal, cultural and business nuances of Israel-related transactions, and is able to support and navigate on all aspects of complex, cross-border transactions. She also represents global acquirers in their investments and acquisitions of Israel-related targets.
Einat is a member of the bars of both California and Israel, and prior to joining Fenwick, she spent 15 years practicing with a top-tier Israeli firm in Tel Aviv, serving as a member of that firm’s Executive Committee and head of its Cross-Border Practice. She also served as a partner at a major international law firm and as in-house counsel for Influence, a medical device company founded by Israeli entrepreneurs, which was acquired by American Medical Systems.
Before moving to Israel, Einat spent 10 years practicing in California, where she was a founding member and the first executive director of the California-Israel Chamber of Commerce, a nonprofit organization dedicated to strengthening business and trade relations between California and Israel. As a result of Einat’s on-the-ground experience in California and Israel, she has built a thriving cross-border practice and solid reputation as a legal advisor to companies straddling the California-Israel technology ecosystems.
