Mergers & Acquisitions

Shimonov & Co. handles merger and acquisition (M&A) transactions, primarily of public companies. Over the years, the firm has handled hundreds of public company mergers and acquisitions in Israel, dozens of tender offers, as well as complex reorganization processes (e.g.: spin-offs), complex in-kind dividend distributions, and similar actions stemming from the Israel Anti-Concentration Law for reducing the number of layers in pyramidal holding structures. In recent years, our firm has represented key acquisition deals in Israel’s capital market, including the acquirer in the mega-deal involving the acquisition of control in Shikun & Binui, the leading infrastructure and real estate company in Israel. The practice area of mergers and acquisitions and structural changes in public companies is a complex one requiring expertise and in-depth understanding of both corporate and securities law, as these two disciplines are inextricably linked. Adv. Israel Shimonov is personally involved in and leads the handling of every material transaction overseen by our firm. Adv. Shimonov’s unique and years-long experience in the area of securities plus his comprehensive knowledge of the Israeli capital market in all its facets and workings has created a winning formula for leading complex cases.
