Gil Arie graduated from TAU Law shortly after the Gulf War in 1991. Tel Aviv was a U.S. oriented law school, as almost all faculty had completed advanced degrees in America. This special atmosphere was what made it easier for Gil to pursue a LLM degree in Cornell, a few years later. “TAU Law changed my life, I don’t know what I would have done without it” says Gil, fondly remembering his time in Buchmann. “I will never forget how caring and accommodating was the school for those of us who missed almost all of the last semester because of the situation.”
Gil completed his legal internship at Shiboleth & Co. and joined the firm as an associate. After 3 years of intensive work, Gil decided to pursue a long time dream to attend school in the U.S. After a wonderful and very successful year at Cornell Law School, Gil joined Foley Hoag as a foreign lawyer. Foley Hoag is a Boston based top-tier law firm, widely regarded as one of the best law firms to work for in America. With the great education and skills he acquired at TAU Law, and very hard work, Gil made a successful career at Foley Hoag. “At start I wanted to get some experience in the U.S, I didn’t think I would stay long,” Gil recalls. “I had to work hard, harder than others, but it paid off,” he adds.
Living in the Boston area is not as hectic as New York, says Gil. Boston is not too big or too small, it’s a very friendly place to live in; you have everything you need and the education level is one of the best in the nation.
Gil is admitted to practice law in Massachusetts, New York and Israel. In his practice Gil focuses on mergers and acquisitions, corporate finance, and technology-intensive companies. Gil is also Co-Chair of Foley Hoag’s Technology Practice. He has significant international experience, assisting early foreign companies and investors operating in the U.S, and U.S. companies and investors operating outside of the U.S., to structure, form and conduct business operations.
