Notable Cases of the Firm

Representation of 742 creditors in the insolvency case of the Ponzi Crook Mike Ben Ari – A cross-border insolvency case amounting to NIS 600 million of the infamous crook who conned 1,000 investors with a sophisticated Ponzi scheme of so-called “investment” in a fictitious investment fund called “Blue River”. This affair was highly publicized in Israel and was covered in two episodes of the investigative reporting TV show “HaMakor”. This is a complex case which is managed in 10 countries including filing insolvency proceedings applications, filing for the liquidation of foreign corporations, filing for the recognition of Israeli insolvency orders in the U.S., South Africa and Montenegro, including involvement in creating legal precedents in the field of deciding on debt claims in Ponzi Schemes, service abroad out of Israeli jurisdiction, and trustee fees. The firm filed to recognize the group of creditors as active creditors, managed a correspondence vis-à-vis the Israeli Securities Authority to prevent money seizures, filed the debt claims of the 742 creditors and more.
Representing the purchasing group in the insolvency case following the collapse of the construction contracting company Muhhamid Taufik which was building dozens of projects simultaneously – the debts in this case amount to NIS 1 billion. The firm successfully represented 518 families in a law suit which was designated to separate them from the constructor’s trustees and replace the building contractor with another contractor, including a separation application and temporary reliefs, and an application to seize bank guarantees amounting to NIS 17 million. After a long and intensive proceeding, the families managed to separate from the trustees and the former contractor and contract with an alternative contractor.
Inbal Or and her corporations – One of the largest insolvency proceedings in the field of construction and purchasing groups in the history of Israel – the collapse of Inbal Or’s group of companies, which was active in organizing residential purchasing groups and in construction and development. This insolvency case includes debts of NIS hundreds of millions to 700 creditors. The legal services included completing construction projects, liquidation of properties, filing D&O liabilty lawsuits and more. In this case, the firm achieved a precedential ruling that a group of companies which is controlled by a single owner will be considered as a cluster of affiliated companies, where funds were transferred extensively between the companies, and the veil may be lifted so that one company would be liable for the debts of another. In addition, the level of responsibility of negligent lawyers and accountants was raised significantly and they and their insurance companies paid dozens of millions of Shekels.
Representing creditors in the insolvency proceedings of Eldad Peri Ltd. and the bankruptcy case of the Late Eldad Peri – representing 50 families in the collapse of the mega-project “Horizon Bat Yam” which was sold to a third party for 270 million N.I.S.

The firm managed legal proceedings and asset tracing in 10 countries including management of proceedings in London and in Israel, managing lawsuits against officers and against Emblaze Ltd. which was controlled by the debtor. The debts amount to about NIS 200 million and over the past year the trustee managed to lead the debtor to offer a NIS 15 million debt arrangement to the creditors.
