About Kanir & Co. Law Office

For many decades, Kanir & Co. Law Office has been noted among the most prominent Israeli law firms in the field of family law, under the leadership and management of attorneys Pesach and Yonathan Kanir. The firm was founded by Adv. Pesach Kanir over 45 years ago, and later joined by his son and partner, Adv. Yonathan Kanir.

The firm is widely regarded as a frontrunner in the Israeli family law arena, and, as such, it is consistently ranked within the top 10 law firms in the field, since the induction of the legal ranking system in 2004. The notable reputation acquired by the firm is a product of decades of hard work and professional legal representation, based on a profound acquaintance with the relevant legislation and case law, and a true understanding of each client’s individual needs.

Kanir & Co. has made a significant mark in the Israeli family law arena by means of uncompromising professionalism in seeking to reach the optimal agreements for the firm’s clients according to their specific requirements. The firm’s legal team has led to numerous highly influential precedential rulings over the years. Among other things, the firm argued a case involving protection of privacy in the scope of family law proceedings; temporary alimony between civil partners and divorcees; the rabbinical court’s jurisdiction to handle claims for divorce, alimony and property when the divorcees wed in a civil marriage, and countless other cases, some of which are presented on this website, and which demonstrate the firm’s proficiency and success.

The firm’s clients can rely on the utmost dedication throughout the entire process – whether in case of a settlement or in case of a court ruling, including Adv. Yonathan Kanir’s professional guidance. Our legal team working alongside Adv. Kanir provides a broad range of effective and creative solutions, while maintaining the right amount of sensitivity necessary to bring each family crisis to an appropriate closing.
