Practice Areas

The firm specializes in commercial litigation and handles it on a daily basis, representing clients in all courts in: corporate law, banking law (representing banks’ customers in suits against the banks, countersuits, self-protection, foreclosure procedures, debt arrangement talks, etc.), insolvency law (managing liquidations in high-tech, finance, industry, sport, etc.), receivership, bankruptcy, commercial and contractual suits, etc.

Banking Law - As part of banking law, the firm specializes in the specific area of representing banks’ customers against the banks in law suits, countersuits, self-protection, foreclosure procedures and debt arrangements, receiverships, liquidations, representing guarantors and more, mainly in complex cases involving large sums of money against the banks’ special credit and finance departments.

Banking law is clearly divided into two areas:
Representing banks, and representing banks’ customer, in which the firm is one Israel’s leaders. The relationship between banks and customers is based on those between loaners and borrowers and composed of commercial, contractual and legal layers. Due to the huge gap between customer and bank regarding information, knowledge and economic strength, the legal system has set a rigid framework for banks’ actions with customers. To restrain the major power of banks and their economic and legal strength over customers, restrictions and balances are set in Israeli law as well as regulatory limitations on the banks and their actions. In this field the firm is a center of expertise, familiarity and experience.

Insolvency Law - The firm’s expertise include liquidating high-tech and advanced technology companies (Better Place group, Go Networks Ltd., Exsodius Ltd., etc.), industrial companies (low-tech, sports organizations; such as the liquidation of Hapoel Tel Aviv and Hapoel Ashkelon soccer teams) both as a court’s appointed representative and as a representative of controlling owners and executives in these cases.
