The department counsels banks and other financial institutions – both foreign and domestic. Our attorneys work closely with the higher echelons on bank management and with branch management alike. We represent our clients in various legal proceedings; including litigation in all instances, high-stake and complex lawsuits and class action lawsuits.

As a one-stop-shop department, our clients can rely on us to provide them with the complete picture and a comprehensive set of concrete counsels; including financial transactions, negotiations, debt settlements and mortgages and other liens.

The department specializes in counsel and representation in all matters concerning bankruptcy, liquidation, insolvency, receivership, debt settlement and writs of execution. We also have a unique specialization in insolvency lawsuits, taken against special debtors, such as local government and cooperatives (Kibbutzim and Moshavim). This unique specialty includes representation of such organizations in all instances and writs of execution proceedings.

Our clients can also count on us for realization of their rights in various real estate issues, including grand-scale construction projects.

Our attorneys are highly experienced professionals, doubtless, they have an impressive expertise in terms of rules, regulations, decrees and common practices, which regulate Israel's finance and banking markets. This high-end expertise enables us to deliver our clients a personal, dedicated and inclusive counsel.

Furthermore, we regularly counsel and represent our clients on complex financing issues and loans vis-à-vis other banks, non-bank institutions or foreign investors.

It is not a cause for wonder, that our decades-long experience in bringing our clients an advantageous and successful representation in all instances did not go unnoticed. By way of example, Israeli Courts regularly appoint our attorneys as receivers, trustees and court officials.
