All of our clients receive legal counseling tailored to their specific needs by a professional and experienced team of attorneys.

Our firm has extensive experience in counselling and advocating for projects from the first step of identifying land and acquiring it for development to planning and obtaining building permits, handling all financing aspects, and being there for the client throughout the project’s lifespan and seeing it to completion, including all registration proceedings with the Land Registration Office.

Planning & Construction

After years of experience representing private, commercial and institutional clients in planning and construction proceedings, appearing for hearings before all planning authorities and courts of law, there is no project to complex for us, there are no tasks we cannot handle and there are no obstacles we cannot prevent – starting with initial development stages, through planning proceedings and all the way to final project approval.

Our proven capacity to handle complex objections, appeals and administrative claims in court, and our command of licensing, permit, facilitations and nonconforming use proceedings, capital gains tax, claims for damages, and a myriad of legal aspects in the realm of planning, licensing and construction, enable us to provide your project with a 360-degree suite of professional, creative, and focused solutions so that you can make it a reality – confidently, efficiently, and professionally.

Urban Redevelopment

Urban redevelopment transactions – such as NOP 38 and eviction-construction, are complicated transactions that in many cases require significant effort from all those involved – rights holders, developers, planning authorities, prime contractors and more. These transactions are based mainly on planning the plot / complex and its surroundings, and therefore the desired outcomes can only be obtained by comprehensively grasping and efficiently planning and exercising the available building rights.

Over the years and through personal representation and counseling, we have successfully provided creative solutions to guarantee the interests of both developers and tenants.

Our firm guides clients on urban redevelopment transactions and projects from the very first step, the initial thought of carrying out such a project, through to drafting the transaction framework, promoting planning proceedings, having all plans approved by the relevant planning authorities, obtaining permits, and until the project is completed to the client’s satisfaction.

Foreign Real Estate Investments

Foreign real estate investments require unique specialties. Apart from the geographical distance and language barriers, investing in real estate abroad commands knowledge of the different markets, laws and regulations, taxation, and more.
