“On a day-to-day basis things are fine, although you might have to duck into a shelter for a few minutes here and there,” Aviram said in a phone interview with The Am Law Daily. “Of course, while most of us are trying to work as usual, certainly our hearts and minds are elsewhere.”

“The world is growing and companies want that one-stop shop for legal services,” Aviram said. “And Israel is no exception.”

Shibolet has relationships with multiple large United States law firms. Aviram said that he is not worried about lawyers in the United States moving in on his territory. He said that law firms have offices in Tel Aviv mostly for client relations instead of competing for business from local firms.

“Technology is the engine of Israel’s economy, so we have to try and maintain normal service to clients, even if that’s not always possible,” Aviram said. “If we miss something on an IPO, that will hurt us more than any rocket.”
