Return of Money Stolen from Clients

A shrewd businessman who took advantage of his position with the family and was able to swindle the father was forced to return about NIS 15 million after our firm was able to prove his deeds and his exploitation of the father’s weakness. A lawyer representing a charismatic entrepreneur who later turned out to be a talented and uninhibited con-artist was forced to pay over one million shekels to a person who had fallen victim to a scam, after we proved that the lawyer had been negligent and did not notice the warning lights flashing around the fraudulent activity. A reckless Jerusalem contractor who took advantage of the plight of a man caring for autistic children who was abroad at the time, and who charged him hundreds of thousands of shekels claiming he had performed and completed construction work, even though he had actually only built an unstable frame, was forced to sell his home and return over one million shekels to our client.

Honoring the Desires of Will Writers

An overbearing sister returned over one million shekels to her sisters after the court overturned a will made by the father of the family in which he bequeathed all of his wealth to only one of his daughters, after we were able to prove that one of the witnesses had not been able to understand the contents of the will. In a similar case, we were able to get the court to honor the desire of the writer of a will and enforce a will in which the mother of the family had bequeathed the home to one of the children, after we were able to prove that the mother acted of her own free will and clarity of mind.

Conservation of Buildings and Real Estate Betterment

The conservation of a historic structure often involves unique difficulties even at the land acquisition stage, the preservation itself requires the developer to enlist the help of a team of experts including a conservation architect, a historian and a highly capable contractor, who, together with us, document the heritage of the structure and its surroundings, assemble a detailed construction plan that includes the best way to treat the structure and manage the work until construction is complete. Our firm has the privilege of taking part in the preservation and improvement of several buildings, including a magnificent basalt building on Zipori Street in Tiberias and a beautiful villa on HaTsalvanim Street, on the slopes of Haifa’s French Carmel.

Banking and Check Matters

Thanks to our intervention, the court rejected a bank’s attempts to evict an elderly mother from her home, who had signed a notarized power of attorney mortgaging her residence for a construction project of one of her sons, as we were able to show that the bank had erred in drafting the power of attorney. We later acted to sell the project against that son’s will, thus completing the rescue of his mother’s home. Following our intervention, the court cancelled the enormous debt of a bakery worker who had fallen victim to a gray market lender, due to the fact that the interest charged him was contrary to the law regulating non-bank loans. We were able to convince the court and the other party to cancel a lawsuit asking to honor checks amounting to hundreds of thousands of shekels, filed against a woman who had fallen victim to a con-artist imposter who had managed to work his way into her life and become her partner, while leading a double life and defrauding people while using her name and her bank accounts.

Tenders and Administrative Petitions

The court cancelled a contractor’s tender win for the construction of buildings using the BOT (Build-Operate-Transfer) method, and approved the granting the tender win to an association we represented, despite the opposition of the local authority, after it was persuaded that the bid she had submitted had not met the threshold conditions of the tender, in a manner that created inequality and made it possible for her to beat out the other competitors, some of whom may not have even submitted bids because they did not meet the threshold conditions set by the Tenders Committee.

Compensation for buyers who purchased homes but received real estate with different zoning

Brash developers sold clients of our firm homes in an area legally zoned for the teaching staff of a youth village. After we filed a lawsuit asking for receivership, we were able to force the developers to compensate our clients for millions of shekels. Thanks to the leverage created by our lawsuit, we continued negotiating with representatives of the Israel Lands Authority, who took it upon themselves to change the city’s zoning plans and get approval for our clients’ homes.
