Ze’ev Scharf & Co. is unique in its focus on a relatively small number of eminent and complex cases, litigated mainly in Israel’s higher courts and raising questions of principle. The firm is involved in complex commercial-economic law lawsuits, where it represents leading companies in Israel and abroad (including, in carefully selected claims only, international companies), as well as prominent businesspeople and senior public figures who operate at the heart of economic activity in Israel and abroad.
Owing to the unique features of the cases handled by Ze’ev Scharf & Co. – their complexity and sensitivity – every case is handled with utmost attention (made possible by the small number of cases handled by the firm at any point in time). Taking into account their complexity and special needs, each case is assigned a small team of lawyers working alongside Mr. Scharf, who is personally involved in all stages of each case.
The proficiency of legal advice and representation provided by the firm to its clients rests on the extensive knowledge, hard work, creativity and broad experience of Mr. Scharf, the partners and the lawyers handling each case.
Among the firm’s clients are prominent financial institutions (e.g., banks; insurance companies; provident funds; and trust funds) and the individuals who lead them, as well as companies and corporations from a wide variety of industries (fuel; energy; chemical and petrochemical; high-tech; real estate – development, construction and infrastructure; airlines and more).
Ze’ev Scharf & Co. specializes in managing complex civil disputes (both local and international) in various levels of the judiciary:
