The firm attributes maximal importance to the owners of rights, on an individual basis, with customization to the population, and particular consideration to issues of culture, language, age and particular difficulties, including the provision of information in various languages.

Adv. Dina Yahav – The Firm’s Founder

The founder of Yahav&Co., Adv. And Notary Dina Yahav, obtained precedents and legal achievements in the real estate field during the firm’s over 40 years of operations. These precedents are studied in the academic faculties of law as part of the training of future lawyers in real estate. The firm, under Adv. Yahav’s leadership, is one of the pioneers of the legal profession in the Pinui-Binui field, and, inter alia, it represented residents in the “Emerald” project on Six Days St. in Kfar Saba, the second Pinui-Binui project that was built and registered in Israel, where the residents are considered to be Israel’s urban renewal ambassadors.

The Firm’s Secret to Success

The firm is at the forefront of legal representation in the urban renewal field and thus far it represented about 4,000 apartment owners throughout Israel, with its name passing from mouth to ear. The secret of its success in this field is the pro-active approach it has been implementing, with thorough and strategic thinking, transparency from end-to-end to the residents and perfect coordination between all of the entities in order to promote and balance the interests of all of the parties – both residents and initiators. The firm’s attorneys leave no stone unturned in every project they manage in order to make what seems initially impossible – possible. Over the years, the firm populated numerous projects with great success and these residents properties appreciated to 2-3 times their original value.

Professionalism and Diverse Expertise

The firm believes that urban renewal would solve and rectify the problems that Israel’s residential market currently experiences and this is expressed through the firm’s membership in the Tama 38 and Urban Renewal Division of the Tel Aviv Chamber of Commerce, and its active participation in the Property Forum of the Israel Bar Association.

The firm’s team of attorneys remains constantly abreast of the latest rulings and is aware of all of the legal developments in the field through accompanying legislation amendment processes in local authorities, local, district and national zoning commissions, and relevant government authorities, including the tax authorities. The firm’s lawyers are highly experienced and possess very broad legal knowledge, alongside with negotiation capabilities and proficiencies that are based on intensive fieldwork and proven practice. Furthermore, the firm’s lawyers, who are considered to be authorities in their field, actively participate in the various Knesset Committees that discuss the field’s regulation, on behalf of the Israel Bar Association and the Chamber of Commerce.
