Yigal Arnon & Co.'s top-ranked Restructuring and Insolvency lawyers represent a wide array of parties—from many of Israel's major banks to distressed companies and local and overseas creditors—in restructuring and insolvency matters involving debts of all sizes affecting enterprises of all sizes.
For example, we provide experienced counsel in regulatory matters that relate to shareholders as well as to the banks themselves, collecting major as well as minor debts and navigating Chapter 11 (or the Israeli equivalent) issues, bankruptcy, liquidation, receivership and debt administration.
Our clients also depend on our highly regarded team in pre-insolvency issues, such as in the creation, review and enforcement of security interests through debt restructuring, loan syndications, reorganizations and liquidation proceedings—local and international. Top managers and directors seek our counsel regarding their legal and fiduciary responsibilities in the context of both pre-insolvency and bankruptcy.
Yigal Arnon & Co.’s Restructuring and Insolvency Group also has deep expertise when it comes to assisting businesses that find themselves involved in bankruptcy and insolvency issues arising from the acquisition of stock or assets of financially distressed companies.
To achieve our clients' objectives in a timely and efficient manner, we draw on a tightly integrated team of experts drawn from our tax, corporate, litigation and real estate practices.
Yigal Arnon & Co. also has wide-ranging experience in securities law, receiverships and realizations of liens. We have particular expertise in the treatment of the restructuring of debt and debt financing arrangements, as well as in meeting the legal needs of both companies and debenture holders in debt arrangements. In fact, we regularly represent public companies, debenture holders, institutional investors and controlling holders in complex debt arrangement matters—and we serve as lead counsel in some of the largest and most complex debt restructurings that have been implemented in Israel in recent years.
We also represent a wide range of bond holders’ representatives appointed to deal with debt restructuring of public companies, public and private funds, and Israeli and foreign corporations.
Our firm is unusual in offering a one-stop-shop approach in debt arrangements. This allows us to handle cross-border debt matters that require a breadth of expertise across numerous other legal practices. Our multidisciplinary approach—with draws on our first-tier tax, corporate, litigation and real estate practices—also facilitates expert handling of international transactions, such as the sale of assets in other countries and the sale of assets to international entities.
