Over the last two decades Omer gained vast experience supporting high-tech companies in the full range of their legal affairs, and was involved in the transactions of some of the most successful Israeli start-ups. Omer has specialized in venture capital financing, intellectual property transactions, joint venture and strategic partnership agreements, and M&A deals.

"Recently we have taken part in some of the most successful transactions occurred in the Israeli high-tech market such as: the acquisition of Sintec Media in consideration for $110M by Riverwood Capital (represented the acquirer – a Silicon Valley PE); the financing rounds and IPO of Wix.com; acquisition of Biometrix Ltd. (representing the company); acquisition of VerSafe (representing the company); financing of HCL of approx. $25M; (which have been published), and many other transactions. We have been involved in hundreds of corporate transactions during the 11 years of our firm’s existence."

He organizes the monthly AngularJS meet-up and the bi-annual Technology Face-Off, manages the Ruby on Rails development course and works a lot with the open source community.

"A lot of entrepreneurs come to our office and almost all of them repeat the same mistakes. It's hard not to identify with the person sitting at the other end of the table. I've been there in the past, as an entrepreneur and as an employee of a big company that is looking to employ an outsourced development team.

After 15 years in development, it's strange to keep seeing the same mistakes and the goal of my presentation is to identify the main difficulties of the entrepreneur and find the best practices and solutions that will make the development process end on time, on budget and be of a quality that's expected from a startup in 2014"
