I find it very gratifying to help companies achieve their goals, and I enjoy facilitating corporate transactions that are wins for both sides. Clients say I’m easy-going, cooperative, and collaborative. My Israeli and other international clients in particular appreciate that I’m very accessible at any time of the day or night; I run my practice for their convenience and never let the time difference affect my availability. They also value my deep familiarity with their country’s culture and legal system.
Representing overseas and domestic companies doing business in the United States, Guy Ben-Ami helps clients navigate the many securities and Israeli and other markets cross-border issues and counsels them on a variety of other corporate matters and transactions. A leader of the firm’s Israeli Cross-Border practice, he is admitted to practice in both New York and Israel.
With ample experience in a broad array of financial transactions, particularly those involving venture capital and startups, Guy handles U.S. and international public and private offerings of debt and equity, Rule 144A placements, Regulation S cross-border offerings, listing companies on U.S. exchanges, and mergers and acquisitions.

As an Israel-born attorney, Guy brings keen insight into the way Israeli clients and organizations tend to think and operate.
