Regulation

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.

 

Barnea provides solutions for corporations contending with regulatory requirements in diverse fields, including in the fields of antitrust, infrastructure and energy, the capital market, communications, privacy, gambling, financial trading, food, health, veterinary services, environmental protection, credit cards and banking.

 

Barnea has know-how and experience in representing clients before various regulatory authorities, including the Capital Market Commissioner, the Israel Securities Authority, the Tel-Aviv Stock Exchange, the Antitrust Authority, the Second Authority for Television and Radio, the Council for Cable TV and Satellite Broadcasting, the Israeli Law, Information and Technology Authority, the Israeli Dairy Board, the Center for Local Government, the various government ministries, Knesset committees and more.
