The regulatory burden has intensified in Israel in recent years and, in some fields, Israel is considered the world’s leading country in the pervasiveness of its regulatory environment.

The many legislative amendments, as well as the regulatory authorities’ active intervention in many spheres, such as the capital market, antitrust, banking, communications, privacy, gambling, financial trading, credit cards, environmental protection, business licensing, crowdfunding, etc., require corporations operating in Israel and their executives to familiarize themselves with the regulations in their sector and to take regulatory considerations into account when making business decisions.
