Money Laundering

Money laundering has recently become a matter of considerable gravity; the new legislative system is complex and obliges every international company to scrutinize the compliance of its financial actions with the provisions of local and global laws. Such accommodations must take into account the work with the Compliance Officers in the financial institutions, whose role, among others, is to ensure corporate compliance with statutory requirements and prevention of money laundering.

Non-Bank Finance, International-Trade Risk Insurance, Credit and Factoring

In contrast to Israel, the majority of the financial market in the USA is financed by non-bank financing, while in Israel it is the opposite. When a 'rainy day' comes, the financial market transforms as the banks are hesitant to grant funds. It is a known fact that in times of crisis, banks reduce their credits for fear of taking redundant risks, and therefore non-bank financing, with its various derivatives (credit insurance, factoring, etc.) increases its relative share in the financial market, and is projected to grow in this period of time. The Firm offers a variety of financing solutions, in accordance with the requirements of the specific client and/or the specific transaction.

Civil Aviation Laws

The 11th of September, 2001 had changed the world in general and international civil aviation in particular. One of the implications of this change was the increasing significance attributed to private civil aviation and the greater demand for business/private jets and their consequent proliferation. Given the nature of our clients, we have developed a specialization in Business Aviation, including aircraft appraisal, economic advisability, maintenance, insurance and operation. We provide legal advice inasmuch as the matter pertains to sale and purchase of aircrafts, their operation, insurance and maintenance, and all aspects thereof.
