About Dr. Asaf Posner Law Office

Adv. Dr. Asaf Posner established his boutique law firm in 2020, specializing in civil litigation, personal injuries, medical malpractice, and property law.
Dr. Posner is a leading attorney who specializes in personal injuries litigation and medical malpractice for over four decades and is teaching at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem for 37 years. Dr. Posner, who is already recognized as an authority in his field, has served on numerous public committees, including a government appointed medical liability committee, a public committee on wrongful birth cases, and served for seven years on the Advisory Committee to the Minister of Justice on Civil Procedure. Dr. Posner’s multiple articles are frequently cited in case law, and he was on the short list to the Supreme Court four times. The firm offers a service that is tailored to each client, a creative approach that involves both academia and practice, and innovative arguments. The firm is responsible for many precedents in the areas of torts, medical malpractice, and road accidents, as well as litigation and property law. The firm has been associated with many precedent-setting judgments, including the famous ruling in the Mizrahi Bank case that established the court’s authority to declare laws null and void, as well as rulings regarding the relationship between legal advisors and a mayor and precedent-setting judgments in the intellectual property area. In this context, the firm integrates academic knowledge with innovative arguments from Israel and abroad, as well as from various fields of law. The firm believes in multidisciplinary synergy and uses different areas of law to implement its strategies. The firm’s proven successes attest to the distinct advantage of creativity and new ideas, which constitute a unique mode of operation of the firm.
The firm has led several claims regarding profession trespassers (on behalf of the Bar Association), claims regarding life expectancy, claims regarding discounting rates, claims regarding social security deductions in tort claims, claims regarding interest rates in tort cases, etc. As part of its legislative and legal activities, the firm constructs claims gradually, realizing that the precedents are not set in a single case.
The firm represents both plaintiffs and defendants, including hundreds of victims of the Versaille disaster (a wedding hall that collapsed). On the other hand, the firm represented the Environmental Services Company in a lawsuit filed by nearly a hundred plaintiffs, claiming the pollution harmed them in Ramat Hovav. The firm has represented hospitals, and from the other side many hundreds of casualties in bodily injuries and medical malpractice. While in the Versaille case the office sued the Jerusalem municipality, the office also represented the municipality itself, the municipality of Mevaseret Zion, the Ashdod water corporation (Yuvalim), Polcom (a pipe importer) in two claims of tens of millions of NIS.
