About Levy-Ettinger, Nakdimon & Co., Attorneys-at-Law & Notary

Levy-Ettinger, Nakdimon & Co. (LEN) specializes in labor law, and is considered to be one of Israel’s leading firms in matters relating to employment discrimination and prevention of workplace sexual harassment. LEN leads these fields both in its social activity and in activist work to change the current situation in the Israeli society. This practice includes representation of clients in litigation cases and reaching presidential achievements, lecturing and organizing seminars and conventions, which emphasize the educational-preventive aspect, and in guiding students in the women rights clinics in IDC Herzliya (formerly) and in the Academic Program of the College of Management (currently).

Premium-Level Legal Services

LEN was established in 2014 from the merger of two firms - Levy-Ettinger which has been practicing since 2003 and Nakdimon which has been practicing since 2004. It is located in Park HaMada in Rehovot at the heart of a busy High-Tech and business center, and its founders champion the mission of providing comprehensive legal services of the highest professional level, with attention to personal, efficient and accessible service. Beyond its particular expertise in labor law, the firm also provides legal services in the fields of civil-commercial law, real estate, wills and inheritances, mediations and arbitrations. The firm has three partners, a team of associates and an administration and finance team. In its labor law practice, the firm provides comprehensive services to companies and individuals in matters of gender and discrimination, women employment laws and prevention of sexual harassment in the workplace. LEN’s commercial department specializes in real estate law and provides comprehensive assistance to entrepreneurs, contractors, purchasing groups, asset-swap (“combination”) transactions and private clients. The firm’s attorneys work from a social agenda and promote the values of equality between men and women with the aim of creating a more egalitarian workplace. As a result, the firm’s work contributes significantly to a change towards equality in the Israeli society. Another guiding value of the firm is the family value, and the firm greatly emphasizes the balance between the personal life and the professional life of its team members. Over the years, the firm recorded legal precedents in the field of workplace equality, some of which became binding practices. These include the Orit Goren Bagatz concerning equal pay to men and women and the Sharona Arbiv ruling which determined that an employee isn’t obligated to declare her pregnancy during a job interview. The firm has vast experience in this field, and works extensively in the practice area of prevention of sexual harassment, which is headed by Adv. Nakdimon, who has been accompanying for years supervisors of enforcement of the Sexual Harassment Prevention Law (SHPL) in workplaces and academic institutes, and provides them with ongoing counsel, both in guiding them on how to prevent sexual harassment in the workplace and the campuses, and in accompanying them when a sexual harassment or aggravation event occurs and conducting the investigation proceeding in accordance with the law. Adv. Nakdimon has also been serving, for many years, as an external supervisor/examiner in accordance with the SHPL, who carries out the investigation proceedings for sexual harassment cases that occurred in a workplace, in cases where the in-house supervisor is prevented from conducting the investigation personally. In such cases, Adv. Nakdimon conducts the investigation proceedings with customization to the workplace and its unique requirements - all according to the circumstances.
