Anat Lavy Azulay who is a renowned authority in her practice areas. Anat also serves as a member of Netanya’s City Council for the second consecutive term, and lectures in various forums. In light of her longstanding experience, in-depth knowledge and professional successes, while meticulously maintaining uncompromising legal service, Anat enjoys an excellent reputation among her clients, the city’s residents, the local authorities and her colleagues. The firm employs women attorneys aspiring to empower women and enable them to maintain a work-life balance. The firm’s lawyers have a lot of flexibility in their work, while clients benefit from a unique “woman’s touch” which is integrated into the legal service, including empathy, emotional containment and client-centric attention. The firm represents clients from all across Israel and from the U.S., France and Canada.
The firm specializes in family and inheritance laws, with a specialization in real estate. While its core operations are in family law, this field engages many other legal practices, including complex real estate issues, and therefore the firm maintains proficiency and expertise in these fields. Since complex family disputes involve real estate matters, including sales, taxation etc., the firm specialized in real estate and real estate taxation, while studying complex topics of this field. This proficiency introduced real estate as an additional and important practice area of the firm.

The firm carefully maintains, transparency, reliability and responsibility at all times, and the client-centric approach is one of the pillars in its work method, which sees the paving of a new path for its clients as its goal. Such a new path can be the conclusion of a life chapter, the signing of a successful transaction or the efficient and appropriate division of an estate.
Notable Precedents, Articles and Cases
Over the years, the firm has represented thousands of clients in complex and challenging disputes. The firm is renowned as one that understands how to solve complex matters and never fears hard work. The firm represents, inter alia, a client in a Bagatz appeal which is nicknamed “The Adulterer 2”. The firm filed a Bagatz against the Great Rabbinical Court, due to the violation of the wife’s rights and her disentitlement. The firm argued that if the party that claims for a “Reduced Partnership” can’t prove a lack of shared contribution and efforts, the partnership isn’t reduced. A similar Bagatz was managed by the firm several years ago, and was settled through a compromise which greatly benefited the firm’s client.

Lavy Azulay serves as a member of the Netanya City Council, voluntarily, and she has been managing pro bono cases of the IBA for many years, in addition to independent pro bono activities, in light of her belief that our purpose in life is to create value and help one another. Adv. Lavy is also active publicly and lectures to women, in numerous forums to which she is invited, mainly on women empowerment topics. Her municipal work started when she accepted a request from a chairperson of one of the political parties who heard of her contribution and assistance to many of the city’s residents out of the goodness of her heart, in topics of community assistance in municipal issues vis-à-vis the municipality. Adv. Lavy agreed to enter the municipal politics in order to alleviate the difficulties of those who turn to her for help and enable help “from the inside” officially as a council member.
