Law Firm in Israel

By: Adv. Eli Shimony

A law firm in Israel provides all legal services a person might need, and does so, of course, according to Israeli law. A law firm in Israel usually deals with all fields of civil-commercial law in Israel: contracts, tort, property, corporate, and of course representation in court. It is recommended for an Israeli citizen who does not reside in Israel, but who has business and personal connections to Israel, to be assisted in managing all of his relations and interests in the country by an Israeli law firm.

Hiring for legal advice from an Israeli law firm, familiar with Israeli law and case law, ensures the protection and defense of the system of rights and interests in Israel of a citizen who does not live in the country. It is important to understand that civil law differs greatly from one country to the next, and it is not recommended to receive legal advice from a foreign attorney who is not familiar with Israeli law. Therefore, for people residing abroad, it is highly recommended to seek the assistance of a law firm in Israel on all matters related to business and private connections to Israel.

Drafting contracts in Israel.

An Israeli law firm provides the client with the various legal services required in the contract field, as necessary pursuant to Israeli law – starting from negotiations and preparing the contract and up to representation in court, in case a dispute arises between the parties to the contract. On all matters related to the field of preparing contracts in Israel, it is very important to receive legal services from a law firm in Israel, even when you reside in another country. It is important at the negotiations stage already for the lawyer representing you to speak Hebrew and be familiar with the rules imposed by case law on holding negotiations in good faith.

Of course, knowledge of the language and the law becomes critical at the stage of drafting the contract, which is usually a complex written legal document. In case the counterparty to a contract breaches it, it is very important to act exactly pursuant to the provisions of Israeli law and case law in order to protect your rights and ensure you receive the appropriate remedy. Here, again, the importance of legal advice from a law firm in Israel is demonstrated, because contract laws are not identical in different countries. Even when there is a similarity in the laws, case law in each country develops different points of emphasis in the interpretation and implementation of the law. An Israeli law firm has profound knowledge of the rich Israeli case law in the field of contract law and can provide legal advice accordingly.

Law Firm in Israel – claims in Israel.

A law firm in Israel can represent you in a lawsuit in Israel dealing with tort law, as either a plaintiff or a defendant. The area of tort law is very extensive and includes different causes of claims. A tort claim can result from a negligent act, damage to goodwill, damage to intellectual property, and more. Tort laws change from country to country; for example, while England has a difference in law between verbal libel and libel in writing, in Israel the law is almost identical in both cases. Another difference between Israeli law and foreign law on all matters related to claims dealing with damage to goodwill is that while in some countries (such as the US and Canada) there are laws providing a defendant with defense against SLAPP claims intended to deter critics and prevent public debate, Israel has no legislation regulating this matter.

Another example of the difference between Israeli law and foreign laws can be found in the case of ruling on compensation for distress, which is much more common in the United States than in Israel. Beyond the substantive differences, there is also a procedural difference in tort trials between Israeli law and the laws of other countries, especially those countries with a legal system that is non-adversarial, or that use juries. This demonstrates the importance of legal representation by an Israeli law firm on all matters related to claims filed in Israel.
