Regulation and Compliance

As pioneers in the field of regulation and one of the first law firms in Israel to establish a Regulation and Compliance department, APM & Co. has rich practical experience and wide knowledge of regulatory activities in Israel.

Specializing in legal proceedings before Knesset committees, government offices and various regulatory entities, our regulation practice has vast experience in advising and representing clients in front of all state authorities. 

Some of the legal and regulatory activities we have been involved in have had national significance and have greatly influenced Israeli society and economy. Amongst others, APM & Co. has initiated various adjustments and changes to laws and has drafted new legislation to update the Israeli legal framework to meet political, economic and social developments. These changes were attained in a wide range of fields, including: corporate law and securities, competition and antitrust, tenders, energy and infrastructure, consumer law, communication and tourism.

We have also acquired experience in the dynamic and rapidly developing area of environmental regulations. In over 20 years representing leading organizations in this field, we have played an active role in the drafting of the country’s environmental regulations, with an emphasis on legislation affecting industry, infrastructure and energy.

It is this experience that has given our attorneys an intimate knowledge of the Israeli regulatory system, allowing us to represent our clients from a more complete and knowledgeable perspective. Our team also plays an active role in influencing the statutory prerequisites relating to environmental regulation in Israel.

Among our clients in this field are leading companies, individuals and trade unions, such as telecommunications entities, the Israeli Manufacturers Association, the Israeli Institute for Energy and Environment, the Association of Public Companies, the Coordinating Office of Economic Organizations, the Association of Gas Industries, the Israel Bar Association, the Oil Institute and other leading commercial authorities.
