Adler Joins Greenberg Traurig Corporate Practice in Tel Aviv

Global law firm Greenberg Traurig added corporate lawyer Ben Adler to the firm’s Tel Aviv office.

Adler spent nearly 18 years at Goldman Sachs, most recently serving as managing director and general counsel of the firm’s Merchant Banking division, where he helped manage the provision of legal services to the group’s multi-billion private equity business across the U.S., Europe and Asia.

Prior to Goldman Sachs, he was a partner in the Corporate Department at Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson.

The primary focus of Adler’s client work is on corporate investments, M&A and private equity transactions. While based in Tel Aviv, Adler will travel extensively to financial centers where Greenberg Traurig maintains offices, and provide guidance and advice to clients on a worldwide basis.

“Ben is a skilled and sophisticated lawyer whose experience in both M&A and private equity across the U.S., Europe and Asia truly complements the corporate lawyers in our global practice. His addition contributes to our strategy of offering premier transactional services by market-leading teams at a time when our global M&A and private equity services are in high demand,” said Peter H. Lieberman, co-chair of Greenberg Traurig’s Global Corporate practice.
