Overview

With decades of experience, our Insolvency and Restructuring department brings to the table more experience at the highest level than other law firms in Israel, having handled some of the most well-known and media-covered cases that have a long-lasting and nationwide impact on the Israeli economy. These cases, part of a sophisticated workload, have been at the heart of public debate in Israel: From salvaging a hospital of national importance, to arranging the debts of the leading shipping company in Israel, and the dismantling of a leading supermarket company in Israel, that employed thousands of employees, to assure that its business is sold as a going concern. This unparalleled level of experience ensures we are first port of call for trustees, liquidators and receivers, while we are regularly instructed by many commercial banks, financial institutions and insurance companies. Our extensive knowledge of insolvency litigation, settling cases through arbitration or mediation, has also helped us win the trust and respect of the courts, including the Supreme Court in precedential cases.
