Antitrust & Competition

In the last decade antitrust, legislation, law, criminal and civil enforcement, has undergone rapid changes, evolving into a core facet of business activities in Israel. Antitrust laws, and the Antitrust Authority Commissioner in particular, has impacted the proceedings of trade and economy, resulting in business entities requiring legal advice in the sector on a daily basis, as in the case of most contracts, transactions and business decisions require a detailed examination of their legality and effect on competition related antitrust laws.
