The banking practice at Lipa Meir & Co was significantly strengthened by the firm’s merger with Preis, Baharav & Co, which brought to the team former Herzog Fox & Neeman partners Ronen Baharav and Ziv Preis. Baharav in particular has experience advising funds and private lenders, and will bolster the firm’s already active cross-border finance practice. Department head Yariv Shalom has acted for Netafim in relation to financing matters in jurisdictions from the Netherlands to Peru to Ethiopia, and provides ongoing advice to Bank Leumi regarding commercial export financing matters. Additionally, Shalom advised a consortium of lenders led by Bank Leumi on a transaction to provide a NIS1bn credit line to the Jerusalem Municipality. Also of note, the team has niche expertise in providing true sale opinions, and in that context it regularly advises clients such as Harel Group and Bank Hapoalim, among others.
