About Arthur Shani & Co. - Law Firm

Volunteering as a way of life. Law firm A. Zisman Shani, had its humble origins in volunteer work (with IBA’s volunteering program “The Reward of a Mitzvah”). That righteous spirit of giving back to the community, still pervades through the firm’s halls. Founders Adv. Ronit A. Zisman and Adv. Arthur Shani, who practice mediation as well, were acquainted when they worked in pro bono legal representation and support for the underprivileged. At the time, Zisman and Shani were already operating successful firms of their own, focused on intergenerational inheritance and wealth management. The pair saw that they harmonize well with one-another, and thus sought to establish a partnership soon thereafter. The firm nowadays considered among the leading and renowned in its fields of expertise, and its customers benefit from the combination of the vast experience and extensive legal proficiency of the two. Zisman, Shani and their associates represent, among others, notable economic figures, public officials and politicians, as well as senior civil servants - in the business sector in general, and in the higher education system and Hi-Tech and software development sector in particular.

A Unique Service Process

The firm’s experienced team of lawyers works on each case distinctively, in accordance with its specific characteristics - with diligence, legal innovation and the identification of the proper angles that would lead to success. Zisman and Shani had created a special service model, with which the clients undergo a comprehensive questioning process, where their needs are identified - as individuals and as a family. During the initial counseling meeting, the firm’s lawyers gain a broad understanding of the legal need or problem, and integrate their legal knowledge and expertise with the expertise and knowledge of other professionals - such as family therapists, parental guides, accountants and valuation analysts etc., in order to formulate a complete and integrative solution. This type of holistic service by the firm is available nationwide.
Considering that the firm’s clientele includes people in demanding positions who cannot neglect life itself due to the legal process, this model allows the firm to provide a full nationwide service to customers in Israel and overseas.It is suggested to review the recommendations of people who have been helped by the firm and who have given their feedback, by perusing the firm’s official pages on Facebook, Google and the LawReviews website.

Within their firm, Zisman and Shani established a “Private Mediation” center, which provides solutions for family and inheritance legal disputes. This mediation center allows disputing parties to resolve things easily, quickly and cheaply outside of the court system, if they so wish. This model replaces the management of lengthy, exhausting and expensive legal proceedings in judiciaries on the one hand, and on the other hand - the agreements are approved ratified as rulings, without undergoing a complete and tiresome process. This is a Win-Win for all of the parties.Numerous families and individuals have received the best personal and humane legal service, at the center, while tailoring legal solutions to each individual or family.The uniqueness of the Private Mediation Center department over other mediation and negotiation services is the work within a firm that is well versed in legal procedures, so that the experience enables the drafting of agreements that can be acted upon, while saving time, energy and money and in full cooperation with other required professionals. The head of the department is the attorney, mediator and notary Ronit A. Zisman.

Complete Discreetness

Although Zisman and Shani themselves have become somewhat of ‘media personalities’, all the staff in the firm strictly maintain the complete privacy of its clients, some of whom are well-known figures in Israeli society. Nonetheless, many cases that were accompanied by the firm received extensive media attention (with no identifying info).One can find on the firm’s website a page that contains case stories handled by the firm, and another page showing media mentions of the firm, its staff, and cases handled by it.
