In this period of rapidly evolving changes in banking industry regulation, and of increasing domestic and international scrutiny, Barnea’s banking team offers creative and practical solutions for businesses all over the world.

We combine comprehensive legal knowledge of Israel’s banking and financial sectors with hands-on personal experience of how these sectors work.

 

Our experience encompasses all aspects of transactions involving cross-border and domestic financing, and covers a broad range of industries.

 

Given our international view of the business landscape, it is only natural that among our clients are foreign banks operating in Israel. We provide such clients with legal advice in relation to various regulatory issues, pledges, and bank offerings, as well as in relation to the assimilation of regulatory compliance programs. We also serve as compliance officers for several of these banks.

 

As part of our technology practice, we also represent many fintech companies contending with numerous regulatory and legal challenges. Fintech companies, in particular, require ongoing professional advice for their ventures from attorneys with expertise in leaping the regulatory hurdles unique to this sector.

 

Barnea also works with both Israeli and foreign banks, investment houses, insurance companies, financial institutions, and other financing and brokerage entities.

 

We provide legal advisory services to these clients in relation to financial-sector laws regulating, inter alia, collateral and insolvency, money laundering and the marketing of securities, and financial instruments and financing transactions. Our advisory services also extend to the entire spectrum of issues pertaining to local regulations and banking laws.
