Capital Markets / Shareholder Activism

Barnea is one of very few law firms in Israel that has played a role in shareholder activist matters.

Our team has led a number of high-profile local and cross-border challenges of control of Israeli incorporated public companies.

 

We represent activist investors and investment funds, advising them on a wide variety of activist strategies, including boardroom battles, hostile takeovers, and related court proceedings.

 

We have a proven track record in identifying opportunities for effecting change for our clients, in unlocking significant shareholder value, and in procuring settlements with these activist investors. 

 

At the same time, we understand the risks and challenges a company faces by having activist directors on its board. Thus, we assist publicly-listed and privately-held corporations in creating strategies for minimizing such risks, as well as prepare them for the possibility of an activist attack. We also provide ongoing advice to companies in defence against potential and current proxy fights or other shareholder activism.
