Criminal Law – White-Collar Crime
White-Collar Offenses are non-violent criminal offenses that involve the misappropriation of funds, fraud, corrupt practices (such as bribery), and more.
Woolfson Weinstein & Co. has extensive experience in handling financial cases involving tax offenses, fraud, and violations of the Prohibition of Money-Laundering Law, the Securities Law, Copyright Law and more.
We represent clients in all judicial courts, at the Tax Authority’s Discharge Payment Committee, and in Monetary Sanction Committees formed under the Prohibition of Money-Laundering Regulations.
The team of attorneys in the White Collar Criminal Law Department advises clients during preliminary proceedings, including at the following stages: Arrest, hearings prior to indictment or disciplinary hearings, proceedings concerning voluntary disclosure and making arrangements for unreported capital (including clients who are foreign residents or foreign citizens), replacing criminal indictments with administrative fines, lodging applications to close files, and amending statements of causes for closing files, as well as submitting applications for pardons and discharges.
Recently, government authorities have become more vigilant with regard to the supervision of unreported capital (“black money”). The office of Woolfson Weinstein & Co. assists its clients in arranging matters related to unreported capital, in voluntary disclosure proceedings, in obtaining immunity with respect to criminal proceedings, and in making the transition to adjudicating these issues in civil rather than criminal proceedings.
Our firm also has extensive experience in the field of receiverships.
Our office’s attorneys are frequently appointed by the courts and Execution Office Registrar as receivers for realization of various assets. The attorneys manage and liquidate assets in accordance with court orders or with orders of the Execution Office Registrar.
Our firm also handles Execution Office files for its clientele as part of or following the hearing of an execution proceeding in court as well as for commercial clients as part of the provision of ongoing legal services.
