LOS ANGELES, Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Wasserman, Comden, Casselman & Esensten (WCC&E), a full service law firm headquartered in Los Angeles, California, announces the opening of an office in Tel Aviv, Israel.  WCC&E's new office has been established to meet the needs of existing U.S.-based clients expanding their business presence into Israel and Europe, as well as to provide a broader range of legal services to Israeli clients seeking to do business or purchase real estate in the United States.

Steve Wasserman, one of the founders of the firm said, "For decades, we have been representing U.S. businesses active in Israel, and vice-versa.  As the scope of business has increased, opening an office in Israel was simply a natural extension of our activity there.  We are able to leverage Israel's unique status as a country with free trade agreements with both the United States and the European Community to assist our clients expand into both Israel and the EU."

Further elaborating on the new office,  Monte Silver, who is licensed to practice law in Israel, is confident that  its local presence in Israel will provide value to bi-lateral businesses.  "The U.S. market has always been the primary destination of Israeli companies.  Over 100 Israeli companies are traded on U.S. stock exchanges -  the number one foreign issuer on U.S. exchanges - ahead of countries like China, Canada, and the United Kingdom.  In addition to on-going technology-related business, our firm has seen a sharp increase in Israeli companies entering  into large scale commercial real estate transactions in the United States."

Among its many activities in Israel, WCC&E is working closely with the Israeli-America Chamber of Commerce to form the Chamber's real estate division which will serve as a platform to gather and disseminate information with regard to taxation, regulation and other key issues relevant to Israel-based investors.
