What is the most significant action that you have recently led?
As a liquidator, managing the liquidation of the "Better Place" network of international companies and coping with economic and legal challenges that were not simple and included a massive debt, an important environmental venture, complex tangible assets for operation and sale and intellectual property owned by various international companies. There were combined interests of customers, creditors, employees and others.

The guidelines of the firm is that discussion is not an aim in itself but a means to achieve a goal – the customer's interest, and as soon as possible. We believe that even in legal confrontations, integrity, full disclosure and transparency – are the foundation stone of correct conduct, alongside strict professionalism and protecting the client's interest.

What are the firm's main challenges in the coming years?

What advice would you offer a young lawyer who is starting out?
The concept "glass ceiling' was invested by people that prefer to set limits to their aspirations, their own or to restrict others but don't believe it, there really is no such concept. If you are hard working and serious, you can be as professional as at least the lawyer contesting you or next to you. Success in the dynamic law market depends in no small part in understanding that the legal world today is built on specific personal expertise and possessing deep understanding compared with the "family lawyer" that existed in the past who was meant to handle a range of many topics that were understood superficially.
