Israel > Banking and finance Tier 1

S. Horowitz & Co’s banking and finance litigation team is known for handling high-profile contentious cases for an array of domestic and international banks and financial institutions, while also advising hedge funds, insurance companies, and credit card companies on both transactional and regulatory matters. Anthony Bloch’s broad practice spans acquisition and project financings and M&A transactions, while Clifford Davis is noted for his expertise in export credit financings and leveraged financings, often with a cross-border element. Michelle Liberman has recently handled several highly complex acquisition finance projects.

Practice head(s):

Anthony Bloch; Clifford Davis; Michelle Liberman


‘The team’s hallmark is the surprising breadth of practice and depth of expertise that make it a marvel in the Israeli banking and finance legal market. Compared to other firms, the trio of Clifford Davis, Anthony Bloch and Michelle Liberman covers all the bases of financial work. They fully understand and are able to implement the banking practices and banking law of English and New York law in an Israeli package.’

‘I have worked with the team on leveraged finance, cross-border finance, project finance, asset finance, export credit finance and so on – and without a doubt S.Horowitz, and especially Clifford Davis, are the crème de la crème and are a joy to work with.’

‘Clifford Davis has an encyclopaedic knowledge of Israeli, New York and English law, he gets the job done smoothly, and with his sense of humour he can negotiate a deal and guide clients to preferential and commercial outcomes – a true legend in his field.’

‘ Anthony Bloch, who works on energy, transport and infrastructure projects, has a masterful approach. Michelle Liberman is absolutely reliable, gets the job done and can easily navigate cross border financings.’

‘Deep understanding of the problems faced by sponsors and financiers wishing to conclude transactions in Israel. Its pragmatism and commercial approach set it apart from many other firms.’

‘Clifford Davis – An Israeli lawyer who uses his knowledge of the London market to great effect – perfectly bridges the gap between London and Israel. Always responsive, very knowledgeable and very pragmatic.’

‘The team was very professional and helpful. They were able to separate major issues from minor ones and helped us find solutions and analyse exposures. Even though the team was busy with other projects, they always found time to be accessible. The lawyers were professional with relevant experience.’
