    We are here to guide you through these evolving trends and help you navigate the complexities of banking and finance with confidence and precision.

    Who we represent

    Our banking and finance clients include three of the five largest banks in Israel, some of the country’s largest insurance companies, leading investment houses, institutional investors, prominent investment funds, mezzanine funds, infrastructure and real estate companies, and leading entrepreneurs and business executives.

    • Corporate finance
    • Acquisition finance
    • Structured finance
    • Real estate finance
    • Restructuring and capital reorganizations
    • Infrastructure finance including BOT and PFI projects
    • Regulatory advice including advising on banking and payment solutions regulations, on privacy, confidentiality and data protection related to financial institutions and acting for investors and companies dealing with the complex regulation applicable to fintech.

    Recent experience includes:

    • Representing a global payment solutions provider listed on the Australian Stock Exchange on a US$150 million funding facility from Goldman Sachs.
    • Advising a global lending company on a credit facility transaction in the amount of US$425 million from the Apollo Group.

    As well as our transactional practice, we have a strong litigation team acting on banking and insurance matters in particular on class actions.

    Recent experience includes:
