Our law–firm is a leading Israeli boutique office, with expertise in legal representation of white–collar economic and international offenses

Our firm

The Eitan Maoz law firm is a premium boutique law firm. It is one of Israel’s leading firms in the sphere of representing defendants in economic and international offenses.

Our team is richly experienced in representing defendants and subjects of investigations in large-scale affairs.  Over the past few years, we have handled some of Israel’s most notable criminal cases.

Eitan Maoz has an impressive background in the acquittal of defendants and key figures, and in preventing indictments during pre-trial hearings held with the State Attorney’s Office and the Attorney-General.

The firm has particular expertise in complex international white-collar cases. This includes FCPA cases with an affinity to Israel; providing counsel and representation in cases of bribery to foreign officials- investigated or charged in Israel and other states; preparing compliance programs; and providing legal counsel in extradition cases and in sensitive cases with high security classification.

What we do

The firm of Attorney Eitan Maoz has strong expertise in representing suspects and defendants in broad range of economic offences, particularly in cases of securities (fraud, stock manipulation, insider information, and other securities offences), bribery, money-laundering, taxation, and anti-trust – both in Israel and in international proceedings, vis-à-vis authorities and enforcement entities in other countries.

Attorney Maoz and his team accompany suspects and corporations from the first stages of the investigation, providing counsel and ongoing representation at every stage of the criminal proceedings – including custody and bail proceedings, negotiations with the various prosecution bodies, and litigation in court. These legal services are also particularly provided by Eitan Maoz and his team in sensitive cases with a high security classification.

The firm also represents companies and individuals in administrative enforcement proceedings before the Administrative Enforcement Department of the ISA (Israel Securities Authority).

As part of its special expertise in extradition cases, the firm works with numerous extradition proceedings in Israel and elsewhere, including coordination and guidance of foreign attorneys in affairs where Israeli citizens and residents are involved. In this field, the firm represents its clients with official entities in Israel, including the State Prosecutor, the Minister of Justice, and the International Division of the State Attorney’s Office - as well as overseas administrative and enforcement agencies.

Attorney Maoz represented the defendants in the only two cases where extradition to the USA was barred (Samuel Sheinbein and Avraham Mondrowitz).

Maoz and his team have outstanding expertise in cases stemming from the outgrowing international regulation, and the increasing enforcement of global-economic offences, with correspondence to the FCPA, and the UN and OECD conventions against corruption and bribery of foreign public officials. The firm represents defendants and suspects in most of the active investigations in this area in Israel.
