Tel Aviv: BLP set to open office

Israeli news portal Globes reports that the new office will be led by corporate finance partner Paul Miller, M&A partner Jonathan Morris and locally hired venture capital funds expert Yonatan Beck.

Business potential

Mr Miller - who moved to Israel five years ago – said that he first spotted the business potential of the area in the 1990s, and was positive about the move even through difficult security and economic times in the early 2000’s.
‘We continued to do business in Israel, and even expanded it, because Israel isn't a trend for us. We're here because the Israeli business world is heading in directions which we see as markets of the future, like China and the Far East. We can open the international market to Israeli companies, and we offer our clients an extensive system of networking,’he told the website.
