Overview

Unanimously ranked as a top tier firm by international legal directories, including Global Competition Review, Chambers Global and Legal 500, our strong team of experts are the front-runner in Israel for antitrust law. Clients value the superior level of professional insight and commercial acumen provided by a team, many of whom are former staff members of key regulatory bodies, including Dr. David E. Tadmor, who previously served as the General Director of the Israel Competition Authority (ICA), and Shai Bakal, who previously headed the mergers team at the ICA.

Indeed, the whole Competition/Antitrust department embraces these characteristics and covers all civil and criminal aspects of competition law, providing effective advice to clients before the ICA, the Competition Tribunal, and the Supreme Court of Israel. We are specifically involved in defending against private actions before local courts, in tandem with our formidable litigation experts.

Leveraging the expertise of our Administrative Law and Regulation practice group, we bring clients a thorough understanding of legislative and regulatory procedures and a considerable track-record in appearing before governmental committees and helping to shape bidding processes and complex agreements with the Israeli government. We have special acquaintance with competition issues and regulations in specific market segments such as banking, shipping, aviation, food, technology and healthcare.
