Antitrust & Competition

Erdinast, Ben Nathan, Toledano & Co. is one of the strongest and fastest growing firms in the field of Antitrust and Competition law. Clients receive comprehensive, commercial and practical advice in merger control issues, monopoly regulation, restrictive arrangements, and the impact of the new Anti-Concentration law in Israel, which came into effect in December 2013. We also advise clients on matters before the Israeli Antitrust Commissioner and the Antitrust Tribunal, as well as in private Antitrust litigation and class actions.

 

Clients confidently approach EBN for our extensive experience, demonstrated by our role in the highest profile mergers in Israel. For example, EBN worked closely with the Israel Antitrust Authority (“IAA”) on the merger between Bezeq The Israeli Telecommunication Corp Ltd. and D.B.S. Satellite Services (1998) Ltd (“yes”), which, valued at NIS 1 billion, is expected to be the largest telecoms matter of 2014 and among the largest mergers in Israel in recent years.

 

In addition to our unparalleled expertise and successful track record in the telecoms sector, our deep energy sector expertise continues to attract a range of clients. Our clients compliment an established roster of longstanding clients, such as yes, Taavura Holdings, Ltd., Eden Springs and El-Al Israel Airlines and others.

 

Our team’s wealth of experience is epitomized by the Head of the department, Michal Rothschild, who has worked at the IAA’s legal department, as well as in the Antitrust group in the New York office of Shearman & Sterling LLP. Michal was recently appointed by the IAA as an Non-Governmental Adviser to the International Competition Network.
