We are one of the few law firms in Israel with a dedicated team of specialist lawyers acting for foreign and domestic companies, executives and individuals who are facing criminal investigations or allegations concerning “white collar” criminal fraud or misconduct. We have extensive experience advising on investigations and prosecutions ranging from those spanning numerous jurisdictions to those commenced by the Israel Securities Authority, the Israel Antitrust Authority or the State Prosecution Office in respect of securities fraud, bribery and corruption, money laundering, anti-competitive behaviour, unlicensed export of defence know-how, asset tracing, breach of fiduciary duty, non-compliance with corporate governance and all other forms of alleged misconduct for which companies or corporate officers can be held liable.
Our team has argued a number of high-profile, precedent-setting cases that have changed the scope and magnitude of personal, executive and company liability under Israeli regulatory and criminal law.
We have the experience and expertise to handle and deal with the industry regulators who police, monitor and enforce the changing and complex rules and regulations that govern market competition, the financial and securities markets, the insurance industry, the telecommunications industry, the banking sector, tax collection and its enforcement, the environment, corporate governance and other industry-specific sectors.
The firm has successfully represented our clients in connection with complex fraud-related issues, securities fraud, money laundering, unfair competition practices, corruption and cartel activities, tax evasion, insurance fraud, industrial espionage, criminal negligence, public corruption and personal executive liability for company violations of environmental regulations and health and safety ordinances. We also investigate, on behalf of clients, internal allegations of company fraud, misfeasance and corruption and have experience, working with US and European counsel, on conducting internal investigations within the context of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the EU’s anti-money laundering and anti-corruption laws.
