About Guy Gissin

Guy Gissin is the founder and managing partner of the firm, and specialises in insolvency, debt arrangements, capital market and commercial litigation. In the past decade, Guy has been involved in complex local and international debt arrangements and dissolution in the Israeli capital market. His personal involvement allowed the setting of significant legal precedents. Guy has been appointed personally by the court and creditors as a position-holder in many corporations that have become insolvent. Adv. Guy Gissin acted as Panel Moderator in a Panel which discussed the application of the EU Insolvency Regulation and the latest proposed Israeli insolvency law and case law. Adv. Gissin has been appointed as the foreign representative of Urbancorp Inc, a Canadian company that raised bonds in the Israeli capital market and collapsed within four months. This is the first case where an Israeli officer is being recognised as a foreign representative in a main proceedings conducted outside of Israel. So far, the bondholders of Urbancorp have received a return reflecting recovery of over 60% of their debt, which is an highly unusual rate for such proceedings, with further significant future potential returns expected in the near future.
