David Martin joined Weksler Bregman in 2007, after a 35 year career as an attorney, professor of law and businessman in the United States and Israel.

Mr. Martin has vast experience in commercial law generally and particularly in international commercial transactions and litigation. In the United States, after a clerkship in the US Federal Courts, his activities included: representation of major brokerage and investment banking firms in complex transactions, acting for a bank holding corporation in litigation against the US banking authorities, advising a foreign corporation traded on the New York Stock Exchange in an SEC investigation, providing advice in connection with the nationalization of US-owned assets by the Cuban government, representing various private and governmental bodies (including the Government of Israel) in oil and defense-related transactions. He has particular experience in dealing with various Middle Eastern governments and with complex international litigation.

Mr. Martin became a resident of Israel in 1980, and continued his legal and business activities here, including major international litigation and arbitration, supply of fuel to the US military in Iraq and significant real estate development. In Israel, he is frequently appointed arbitrator in multi-national/multi-lingual proceedings. He has also been the chairman of the Board of Directors and a Public Director of various Tel Aviv Stock Exchange companies, as well as a member of the “Helsinki” committee overseeing medical research at Israel’s largest Medical Center.

Mr. Martin was Adjunct Professor of Law at Georgetown University and Cardozo Law School in the United States and Adjunct Professor of International Transactions at the combined Masters Program of Ben-Gurion University and Boston University in Israel. He has also lectured on international legal matters at Bar-Ilan University and for international bar groups. He has published inter alia: a study of International Litigation for the American Bar Association, an analysis of charitable tax deductions under the Israel-US Double Taxation Treaty, a Critical Review of the Targum Neofiti Primo – an early Aramaic translation of the Bible re-discovered in the 20th century, and a study of “self-help” under Talmudic law.
