Mr. Well is the head of FBC’s Corporate practice. With over 25 years of experience, he is ranked by international and domestic indices as one of Israel’s premier corporate attorneys, specializing in debt restructuring, capital markets, banking & finance, corporate governance, securities regulation and M&A.

Mr. Well has been involved in numerous high-profile M&A transactions, including representing the Government of Israel in the privatization of major banks in Israel, and advising the Eurocom Group in the acquisition of the controlling interest in Bezeq for NIS 6.5 billion (one of the largest M&A transactions ever in Israel).

Mr. Well has been involved in virtually all of Israel’s most significant restructurings, aggregating to over NIS 20 billion of debt and he is the first and only Israeli member of the International Insolvency Institute.

Mr. Well is frequently consulted by major Israeli regulatory agencies to develop and comment on proposed legislation and regulations, and appears frequently at conferences organized by the Israeli Securities Authority and the Israeli Formal Receiver. Mr. Well was selected as a member of a committee appointed by the Ministry of Finance to examine the regulatory framework of tailor-made lending by institutional investors.

Prior to joining FBC, Mr. Well served as general counsel of the Clal group, then the largest holding concern in Israel. Mr. Well has been on the faculty of Israel’s two premier law schools, where he teaches courses on securities law and M&A.

Mr. Well served as a law clerk to Prof. Aharon Barak, the former President of the Supreme Court and was also the editor of the Mishpatim Law Review at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

FBC has one of Israel’s leading Capital Markets practices. The Capital Markets team provides counsel on international and local public offerings, private placements, controlling shareholder transactions and issues relating to corporate governance, and ongoing reporting and filing requirements under Israeli and foreign securities laws.

FBC represents issuers, banks and underwriters in large and complex placements of equity and debt securities on the Israeli and international capital markets and is considered to be a pioneer in developing complex capital financing provided by insurance companies, and in advising on negotiable and non-negotiable financial instruments, exchange-traded certificates and bond transactions.

FBC’s representation regularly includes preparation of prospectuses and other disclosure documents, conducting due diligence reviews, assisting with corporate and tax planning, negotiating between issuers and underwriters and counseling with respect to a full range of regulatory authorities, including the Israel Securities Authority, stock exchanges in Israel and abroad, and rating agencies.

Fischer Behar Chen Well Orion & Co was founded in 1958 by the late Mr. Isachar Fischer (1929-2013), and is one of Israel’s premier full service law firms.

FBC offers its clients professional excellence and personal attention across the spectrum of multidisciplinary business legal services, and is involved in a wide range of representations at the forefront of Israel’s legal-economic agenda.

Since 2000, FBC has been Israel’s fastest growing law firm, and is repeatedly ranked by international and domestic indices among Israel’s leading law firms.
