The vast experience accumulated by Sinay Elias & Co. in this field is unprecedented in the Israeli legal market, thus allowing its clients to conduct business safely all around the world, without the need of hiring a large, impersonal law firm for these matters. In order to provide its clients with the most professional service possible in all cross-border matters, the firm utilizes widespread relations, close work ties and personal acquaintance with prominent attorneys and law firms around the world.
