Prominent Cases from the Past Year

Representing a Renowned Businessperson in an Inheritance Case: The firm filed for the client an objection to a will probate order and the appointment of an estate manager. This is a complex case which includes conducting actions in South Africa and dividing the estate in correlation between the countries. The case includes extensive property which is estimated in NIS ten of millions, including in an upscale neighborhood of Tel Aviv and vast rights in South Africa.

Representing a Child who Requires Lifesaving Medical Treatment Abroad: The firm represents a sick minor who requires lifesaving medical treatment, while insisting on his right to leave to the U.S. in order to receive this treatment. The Rabbinical court and the father are “fighting” the family members in order to bring them back from the U.S. while ignoring the medical condition, and at the current stage the mother was declared to be a child abductor under the Hague Convention and hundreds of thousands of Shekels from selling their house were seized.

Managing a Complex Divorce Case that Includes Child Abduction: Managing a divorce case which includes the division of vast properties including a restaurants chain, houses, a car dealership and more. The mother moved to reside with the children in southern Israel despite the decisions of family court, the district court and the Supreme Court that prevent her from doing so. The property case is still being managed and the ex-wife returned to reside in northern Israel after a determined legal struggle. Nowadays, the woman abducted the minors again and appropriate application were filed in the court.
