Accordingly, the service in the firm is personally customized for each client according to their personal requirements - an attentive ear and a shoulder for difficult times alongside with analytical and accurate professionalism that identifies, in every case, the best way to achieve a beneficial agreement or a court victory.
In-Depth Commercial and Economic Understanding – the Firm’s “Gamechanger”
The firm has two additional main practice areas which complement the family law practice - real estate law and taxation and civil-commercial law. The vast understanding and experience of the firm’s team in these practice areas contribute decisively to the success in the marital status cases that it handles. The team’s toolbox helps it build rational and forward-facing mechanisms into the divorce and settlement arrangements. This applies also to estates which include diverse properties and assets– such as investment portfolios or properties in Israel or abroad. These are the cases where the experience and capabilities of the firm’s owners truly come into play, and the owners believe that without a deep understanding of adjacent fields it would be difficult to achieve an optimal result for the client, even in cases which are apparently “simple”. Vast knowledge is the force which enables winning tactical and strategic planning.
