Dealing in real estate issues such as the sale or acquisition of property by local and overseas clients is one of the firm’s major activities. Many people believe that buying or selling a property is a simple, straightforward matter. It is not. It involves a series of bureaucratic procedures such as registering the transaction at the land registry offices in Israel. No one should undertake the maze of these bureaucratic entities without the assistance of a reputable law firm. Furthermore, when buying or selling real estate, one should ensure that the transaction assures the best interests of all the parties concerned. A clumsily or sloppily written contract may jeopardize the title deeds of the property.

Life expectancy is also increasing. This means that the need for medical powers of attorney and enduring powers of attorney is increasing rapidly. Many people fear that an accident may temporarily disable them and their ability to make decisions or they may incur more lasting disability due to old age. An enduring power of attorney is a very sensitive document and must be expertly prepared to protect the interests of the principals.
A boutique type of family law firm can be very suitable for those looking for a personal service law firm; one with the individual touch that gives clients an ear to listen to their problems and concerns and a voice that can suggest viable solutions.
