Practice Areas

Corporate, Mergers and Acquisitions – Corporate is the heart of what we are about as a commercial law firm. We advise all kinds of corporations; public or private, on issues such as raising capital; share issues or debt, and all forms of corporate restructuring; mergers and acquisitions, a transfer of control, any kinds of split, liquidation and more. Our hands-on approach is especially valuable in the case of cross-border transactions as this is the time when a client is particularly vulnerable and finds itself in unfamiliar territory.

The firm has been recognized as an industry leader in high profile and complex infrastructure projects across Israel. Projects include the IDF new training campus, light rail projects in Jerusalem and Tel-Aviv, the Gilboa power plant, electrification of the Israeli railroads, water desalination projects (in Israel and abroad), power plant establishment, natural gas piping projects, establishment of the Israeli Police Force Academy and more. The firm has extensive knowledge and expertise in all legal aspects of complex infrastructure projects including drafting and advising on tenders, negotiating concession agreements (BOO, BOT), EPC agreements and operation and maintenance agreements, sub-contractor agreements, advancing plans, obtaining approvals and dealing with committees and government authorities.

The firm acts for foreign companies and high net-worth individuals in complex corporate, infrastructure, capital markets, anti-trust, technology and real estate disputes. The litigation team has specialized expertise in representing foreign companies in their activities in Israel, as well as in representing prominent businessmen in commercial and shareholder disputes.

We at Barnea & Co., recognize what a technology company needs.
