Who’s Who Legal: Competition nominee Hagai Doron leads the compact but talented practice at S Horowitz & Co. The firm boasts one of the oldest antitrust groups in Israel, established in 1959. Doron is joined in the partnership by Pnina Sheffer and Asaf Rentsler, and supported by three associates.
The team rightfully prides itself on its success in coordinating large global mergers: it acted for medical supply maker Medtronic in its US$43 billion tie-up with Covidien; for GE in its high-profile combination with Alstrom; for Koch Industries in its US$1.2 billion acquisition of Guardian Industries; for Cisco in its purchase of NDS; and for both parties in a joint venture between Teva and Procter and Gamble. The firm boasts a host of other international clients, including a good portion of the car industry: it acts for Porsche, Volkswagen, Jaguar and Land Rover among others, and recently helped Aston Martin set up a new distribution chain.
Doron and his team are involved in some major ongoing cartel cases, including three that stem from EU decisions. They act for Fuji in gas insulated switchgear, for British Airways in air cargo and for Sharp in LCD panels. Doron also represented Teva in the baby formula case, which recently ended in a consent agreement with the authority.
