We specialize in obtaining the important -often-crucial - evidence required to the court or tribunal in reaching a verdict. This is the summit of the litigator's profession on which he is tested by his clients. An important aspect of this practice is the cross examination, the very core of the trial. We invest our efforts in deriving the important information from the witnesses in order to determine the outcome. As founder of our firm, advocate Arieh Novick emphasized, asking a question is right, not a duty.
We pride ourselves in that our firm represents, for many years, some of the leading insurance companies in Israel, whose claims departments are headed by experienced lawyers. In our field of expertise we represent, privately, the City of Jerusalem, and also have been chosen, after meticulous scrutiny to represent, along with other leading law firms, the State of Israel.
We also represent claimants in our field of expertise, and are strict about avoiding conflict of interests with our permanent clientele.
