About Harlap & Co., Law Office

Amikam Harlap & Co. is one of Israel’s top tort lawsuits firms. The firm, which would commemorate 50 years of operations in 2023, provides all of the tort law services as a one-stop-shop, and since its establishment it had only one goal – to develop and promote the field of handling the various types of insurance and tort claims, from traffic and workplace accidents, through medical malpractice and up to general civil law matters. The firm relies on three major pillars – vast legal knowledge and proficiency, top-tier litigatory capabilities and personal and uncompromisingly accessible contact with the clients. All of the above have gained the firm extensive reputation, and to this very day, clients reach it through word to mouth. Over the years, the firm has been involved in some of Israel’s greatest legal affairs, and its victories in the court have affected the legal profession on a national scale. Among others, the firm handled claims which were related to the Versailles Wedding Hall Disaster, the Qumran Stream Disaster, the fire in the fireworks warehouse in the Sharon Region, the disaster in the Adia Wedding Hall in Yavne, retirement benefits for independence professionals and more.

Receiving Full Rights: The firm accompanies plaintiffs in the process of realizing their rights vis-à-vis the National Insurance Institute or alternatively, the Ministry of Defense when the plaintiffs are members of the Defense Establishment.

Boutique Firm by Definition

Harlap & Co. has defined itself as a boutique firm before this term became fashionable, with the aim of specializing in the niche of tort lawsuits and fully mastering it. The firm’s boutique character is expressed both in the warm and personal attention that the various clients receive from the firm’s team and in the pleasant internal atmosphere between its team members. Thus, over the years, the firm was distinct in its function as an incubator for lawyers who have found it to be a healthy and ambitious work environment. This leads to the fact that many of the firm’s lawyers continue to work in it for many years and even decades, a rare phenomenon in the legal profession.

The Firm’s Graduates – Renowned Layers and Judges in Various Courts

The firm’s activity has gained momentum over the years and nowadays it includes 15 excelling layers, 5 of whom are partners. In light of its longstanding existence and the prominent position it achieved, the firm has groomed, during its almost 50 years of operations, dozens of lawyers and mediators who nowadays own independent firms or serve as judges in courts of various levels. These graduates started as interns in the firm and have been contributing to its accumulated reputation.
