What the team is known for

Yigal Arnon has noted experience in energy, social infrastructure, and transportation project finance. The team advises private sector companies and financial institutions, both domestic and international, in addition to its frequent representation of government bodies in the development of key infrastructure across Israel. The firm, which has offices in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, is often selected to advise on transactional, contentious, and regulatory matters in the energy sector, with particularly notable activity on solar power projects.

Strengths

One client pointed out that one of the "key features of the firm" is its "ability to integrate and coordinate between the firm's various experts in a variety of individual areas as part of one big issue."

Interviewees say that the firm had "excellent familiarity with the legislation and work processes, a matter-of-fact and practical approach to the anticipated problems, and the ability to make necessary adjustments following customer requirements."

Work highlights

A team led by Simon Weintraub and Avi Anouchi advised J.P. Morgan and Morgan Stanley as joint bookrunners in the USD2.5 billion offering by Energean of high-yield debt.

Notable practitioners

Tel Aviv-based David Schapiro is highly regarded for his work on major infrastructure tenders and projects across Israel. He offers particular strength in assisting both international and domestic clients with complex project financing mandates.

Doron Tamir frequently assists governmental bodies and construction companies with energy and infrastructure projects. Based in Jerusalem, he has experience advising on tenders and BOT projects, with additional strength in project financing.
"Doron has extensive experience in many fields of project finance, which would be his principal strength. In addition, he has an outstanding ability to find unique practical solutions."
