The Only Law Firm in Israel with Specialised Practice Areas and Dedicated Teams
HFN was founded almost 40 years ago as a boutique law firm aiming to provide high quality legal service for international clients conducting business in Israel. In the years since, the Israeli market has seen an increasing client demand for complex legal services performed to international standards. Due to its size, structure and acknowledged expertise, HFN is the Israeli firm best positioned to accommodate these ever-growing needs.
HFN has developed practice specialisations by establishing dedicated teams, led by recognised experts in various fields, to provide clients with interdisciplinary solutions. The firm has more than 30 departments within six core areas of practice: Corporate, Banking & Finance, Tax, Sector Expertise, Regulatory/Government and Litigation/Dispute Resolution.
HFN’s forward thinking is demonstrated by the firm’s establishment of a number of innovative departments, the first of their kind in Israel, with the objective of providing legal solutions for the changing global landscape. Such niche departments include: Environment and Climate Change, Public International Law, Internet & E-Commerce, Gaming, and Defence and Homeland Security.
Unique to the Israeli market, each department is comprised of its own dedicated team which works in tandem with other professional departments to evaluate every issue from each relevant viewpoint. Clients are assigned a designated partner who serves as the main point of contact and coordinates efforts between departments within the firm.
