Litigation / White Collar

In recent years, we have witnessed a significant uptrend in the level of compliance regulatory authorities are requiring from individuals and corporations, and in the level of actions being taken by enforcement and prosecutorial authorities in Israel and internationally.
Under these conditions, early representation by expert attorneys is critical. The white-collar team in our firm’s Litigation Department possesses unique experience and a sophisticated approach to white-collar issues, deriving from their in-depth familiarity with the diverse requirements of authorities in Israel and in the United States, and from their creative legal thought processes.

We represent clients from all business sectors during various types of white-collar proceedings.
We advise from the preliminary stage of preparing for an investigation to providing representation before the various courts, in matters such as securities fraud, tax issues, suspected bribery and corruption, money laundering, other types of economic crimes, and more.

The team offers guidance to officers and corporations during the implementation of compliance programs, during the conducting of internal investigations, and during investigations by enforcement authorities. It also provides representation before all courts. Our white-collar team is proud of its long record of success, thanks to its expertise and professionalism, in-depth knowledge, determination, and full collaboration with other departments in the firm.

Barnea’s white-collar team has also amassed unique experience in representing and advising clients during international investigations, and in representing Israeli defendants during investigations by a variety of regulatory authorities in the United States.

Our integrated approach and in-depth knowledge of the various regulatory requirements, collaboration with leading law firms outside of Israel, and creativity and innovation provide clients with comprehensive, proactive, and results-oriented legal services.
