This contribution gives meaning and essence to both the Firm and Yad Sarah.

The Firm counsels employers and employees during employment-related hearings.
The Firm has established the “Oved Aitzot” internet portal site (available in Hebrew only) which offers advice and tips on the employee-employer relationship. The Firm understands that the field of labor law is complex, and requires the attorney to have particular legal expertise in labor law and that the uniqueness of labor law differs from ordinary law, inter alia, in the law of evidence and document discovery procedures.

Court case management requires strong capabilities ranging from strategy formulation, a serious understanding of the legal issues involved, the quality of the attorney’s appearance before the courts and a thorough presentation of the issues involved.
