Litigation / Derivative Actions

Derivative actions are an important tool in the enforcement of proper corporate governance in companies in Israel.

In recent years, the use of derivative actions has increasingly become a key concern for private and public companies. 

 

Our firm has substantial knowledge and expertise in advising companies, officers, and shareholders on derivative actions. 

 

The litigation team at Barne Jaffa Lande Law Offices has gained in-depth experience in representing clients in securities law disputes, control fights, lawsuits against officers and shareholders, minority oppression lawsuits, shareholders’ disputes, and business-related lawsuits.

 

Our Litigation Department handles, inter alia, lawsuits alleging breaches of fiduciary duties of trust and care toward a company, erroneous or misleading financials and reports, noncompliance with reporting obligations, unlawful trading using insider information, restatements of financial statements, and more.

 

The experience and knowledge we’ve accumulated, combined with our savvy business mindset, enable us to successfully manage any type of derivative action proceeding.
