Weinstock-Zecler is proud to announce that Global Competition Review (GCR), 2016 Edition, has ranked our anti-trust practice, led by Adv. Niv Zecler and Adv. Ofer Argov, as a top-tier as a Tier 1 practice in this field. 

In addition, GCR had the following to say about our firm: 

 

"The competition team at WEINSTOCK-ZECLER & CO is a go-to firm for complex litigation work in Israel, both criminal and administrative. Who's Who Legal: Competition nominee Niv Zecler is the former general counsel of the IAA. He works alongside seven associates and two fellow partners: Eran Zach, who specialises in criminal work; and Ofer Argov, who focuses on civil antitrust and corporate litigation. 

 

This year, the firm's competition team has been busy with criminal, administrative and civil proceedings. On the civil side, it defended food company Strauss Group against Cadbury's allegations that is abused its dominant position and foreclosed the chocolate maker from the market, Weinstock-Zecler also acted for Strauss in a class action seeking damages for alleged price fixing in the dairy market. The team worked for Abbott and its distributur Promedico in one of the IAA's first administrative cases to use the new oligopoly chapter in the Antitrust Law, which saw Abbott accused of being part of a three-pronged monopoly in the baby formula market. The case ended with a consent decree and commitments, rather than fines. The team assisted Steimatky, a retail chain in the book market, and its chief executive in criminal allegations that were concluded in an administrative consent decree. The team is also acting for Alrov real estate group in an appeal to the tribunal against a blocked merger.

 

On the criminal side, Zach is coordination the defence for two chief executives facing collusion allegations in the bulding and water meter industries respectively, while Argov is representing Mer Technologies in a bid-rigging case. Both Zach and Argov work on the defence of Angel Bakery executives in criminal proceedings currently at the closing remarks stage."
