What recent key move did you lead?

As I did before, when I led the defense in the Kishon lawsuit, which is considered to be Israel’s largest toxic tort lawsuit, nowadays I’m also leading and coordinating a large team in our firm in the representation of several commercial companies which were sued by numerous plaintiffs both in proceedings that are managed in Israel and in proceedings abroad. Vast litigation operations that involve the management of large and material cases in the field of insurance and torts in Israel constitute the essence of my practice.

What are the firm’s strongest attributes?

In addition to being a one stop shop, our firm is also unique in the fact that it reached its current size and strength mainly as a result of in-house development of lawyers, who grew in the firm from their internships in it. This indicates cohesion, a shared faith in the path and of course, the esteem we receive from our existing clients, things that led us to such a significant growth in a trend that I believe would continue also in the future.
