THE PASSING of Yaakov Neeman, dean of Israel’s corporate lawyers and consigliere of prime ministers, presidents, justices and tycoons, could not have been timed more proverbially.

As the media buzzed with fresh graft allegations against Benjamin Netanyahu, the prime minister missed the star-studded funeral of his longtime confidant – the co-founder of Israel’s largest law firm who served Netanyahu as finance minister once and justice minister twice.
