The partners

Adv. Tsafrir Negbi, founding partner – is one of the more senior and seasoned litigators in the country. He specializes in representing large conglomerates, institutional investors, financial institutions, and public figures in high-stakes and complex legal claims involving hundreds of millions of NIS. These include disputes involving public takeovers, large-scale infrastructure projects (in transportation, energy, water desalination and more), real estate investments and development, control battles and shareholders’ disputes in public and private companies, petitions to the Supreme Court sitting as the High Court of Justice, class and derivative certifications and claims, administrative petitions, and many more.
As such, Adv. Negbi served as lead counsel in a long line of significant cases, some of which laid down precedential rulings in Israeli law. Thus, for example, he led the case, where for the first time in Israel, the courts upheld the practice of a reverse triangular merger in publicly traded companies, as opposed to the traditional tender offer.
Another fine example of a precedential ruling under Adv. Negbi’s belt was a ruling by the Supreme Court protecting the anonymity of persons posting online by refusing to force telecom companies to disclose their identity to persons or entities claiming to have been offended by the publication. In yet another precedential case, Adv. Negbi represented one of the largest retailers in Israel against the Government Companies Authority in a petition against the monopolistic conduct of the authority in fixing unfair prices for the commercial spaces the authority manages.
