Regulation / Antitrust

Competition laws are a primary and critical element of many commercial relationships such as mergers and acquisitions. All businesses should be aware of the impact of these laws.

Our anti-trust and competition practice team covers both contentious and non-contentious aspects of a complex and wide-ranging area of law.

 

If necessary, we obtain anti-trust rulings to complete M&A transactions and negotiate the conditions that may apply to such rulings. We advise on identifying whether or not the anti-trust laws may impact upon a proposed transaction in order to mitigate against potential difficulties at a later stage.

 

We also regularly represent clients before the Israeli Antitrust Authority, the Anti- Trust Tribunal and the Israeli Courts regarding class actions and other legal proceedings concerning cartels, restrictive trade practices, abuse of monopolistic power etc.

 

We will proactively examine a company’s commercial arrangements vis-à-vis competition, in particular to ensure compliance with the Restrictive Trade Practices Law and to provide guidance on the intra-organizational processes that prevent violations.
