Adv. Rina Lapidot, Founder

Adv. Rina Lapidot holds an LL.M. degree from Bar-Ilan University and is an expert in mediation and conflict resolution relating to community, public and business disputes. Adv. Lapidot has roughly 30 years of experience in the public sphere and with local authorities, advising municipalities, municipal corporations, and cooperative associations. Her hands-on experience as a CEO of a local council and her extensive experience as a lawyer and legal adviser has given her a unique perspective, which translates into a significant advantage for our clients. Among others, Adv. Lapidot serves as a legal adviser for the local councils of Jatt and Daliyat al-Carmel and was appointed by the Ministry of the Interior to advise the municipality of Majdel Krum as part of the council’s financial recovery process.

Adv. Lapidot has special expertise in the field of public procurement and tenders, public law, litigation, and repossession – managing merger cases, including in the administrative and legal realm. In the area of planning and building, she serves as legal adviser to the HaBaron Settlements’ Planning and Building Regional Committee.

The firm’s clients include numerous local authorities, including the cities of Jerusalem, Beer Sheva, Holon, Bat Yam, Arabe, Kfar Yona, Beit She’an, Rishon LeZion and Nazareth, as well as the Mateh Yehuda Regional Council, the Daliyat el Carmel Local Council, the HaBaron Settlements Regional Planning and Building Committee and many other local authorities.

The firm also provides legal counsel to companies and clients in the private sector, such as large companies in the security industry and in the tender area, including representation in administrative petitions. The firm’s extensive experience writing tenders at all levels of local authorities is a unique advantage when representing entities taking part in tenders, and petitions submitted after winning tenders. In addition, the firm represents private clients in civil litigation, including in the area of labor law both in the private and the public sectors. The firm even represents government ministries and private entities in cases against government ministries and does so with impressive success thanks to its many years of close work with government ministries. 

Unique Experience Leads to a Comprehensive Legal, Managerial and Strategic Vision

The firm’s uniqueness lies in the legal service it provides, together with its legal, managerial and strategic vision. The experience of Adv. Lapidot, who served as CEO of a local municipality, including in-depth familiarity with the workings of local authorities, budget management, and organizational structure, contributes significantly to the management of the legal counsel. The comprehensive legal and managerial framework that the firm provides the local authorities, and counsel that includes unique advantages stemming from a deep knowledge of the authorities’ internal activities, including elected officials and position holders, form a unique strength for the firm. This advantage is also apparent when managing personnel in the field of labor law and human resources and managing other fields within local authorities.

Another substantial advantage is that the firm is experienced in establishing corporations, for example, regional clusters that provide regional services to several local authorities that are partners in the corporation. The firm was among the founding team that guided the Finance Ministry and the Ministry of the Interior and was responsible for composing all the tenders, practices and regulations that formed the foundation for establishing the regional clusters. The fact that the firm is familiar with the local authorities enabled it to assist the Ministry of the Interior and the Finance Ministry in establishing the foundations for the clusters and for providing solutions for merging services for the sake of improved efficiency and better service to the residents.

The firm currently employs 8 lawyers in its two branches, located in Tel Aviv and Nazareth and is in the process of expanding its size and practice.
