Establishing an Israeli company is these days a very easy process. Almost any young lawyer knows how to have the client sign the pile of standard documents required for the incorporation of the company, documents that may even be found over the internet – a basic set of document that sometimes seem an inconsequential procedural matter. The businessmen are more interested in the business side and thus not necessarily want to “invest” in agreements customized to their needs or use the services of an attorney who is familiar with not only the side of the establishment of the company but also with personal experience in the establishment and management of a commercial business as well as with practical experience in representing in Court in cases involving shareholders disputes – an attorney who may prepare for them articles of associations and shareholders agreement, each of which may assist them in coping with corporate crises or shareholders disagreements, some of which are unpredictable at the time of incorporation.
The success of a company depends, among other things, on the ability to make decisions and manage it. Therefore it is vital that the articles of association of the Company and the shareholders agreement will be tailored fit to the dimensions of the parties and goals of the company and that the “fitting” will be made by an attorney with not only the correct business view but also experience in shareholders disputes, so that the attorney may include in the documents the proper arrangements. While this is an investment at a stage where the company is yet to generate revenues, but like any structure, without a solid foundation the structure may at some point collapse. We note, that if a company need be incorporated in a haste in order to immediately commence in the business, one may set up a company with the standard documents, but it is important to promptly sit with an attorney knowledgeable in the field in order to tailor make the proper articles of association and even a shareholders agreement to replace the standard documents as soon as practical.
