Doron Stern

Doron Stern, Founding Partner

Doron Stern graduated from the Hebrew University Law School in 1984, and was admitted to the Israel Bar Association in 1985. Following his graduation and his articulation in the Supreme Court of Israel, Doron worked as a foreign associate in Willkie Farr & Gallagher, in New York City. Upon his return to Israel in 1988, he joined the Law firm of Y. Raveh and Co., became a partner within one year, and was in charge of hotel development projects, real estate projects, environmental law, and commercial litigation during his seven years of partnering with Raveh.

Doron founded Tulchinsky Stern with Menachem Tulchinsky in 1995, and after a few years shifted his main practice to Hi Tech start-ups and venture capital law, which was in its infancy at the time. The practice quickly grew with noted transaction such as the $4.8 Billion merger of Chromatis Networks into Lucent (the largest "exit" ever to take place in Israel), the long term legal handling of all Jerusalem Venture Partners matters, as well as numerous investments, mergers, sales, and commercial transactions of startups and venture capital funds in Israel.

Throughout his career Doron maintained an active practice as commercial litigator, on selected cases, and an active practice in tax, specializing in venture capital tax related matters, as well as international trusts and estates matters. He also maintains an active practice of environmental law, shifting from ongoing and regulatory advice, to representation on environmental administrative and criminal proceedings.

Doron has served as a Judge in the disciplinary court of the Israel Bar Association (IBA) for 12 years and was recently appointed to the Supreme Disciplinary Court of the IBA.
