Israeli Contracts Law Proposed Amendment – How Dramatic Is It?
Contrary to the headlines, a careful examination of the amendment shows it is anchored in Supreme Court case law, and that it creates greater certainty with regard to contract interpretations in the business sector.
Amendments to the Israeli Succession Law
Amendments to the Israeli Succession Law have recently come into effect that expand the authority of the Succession Registrar, reduce the number of matters transferred to the Family Court, and limit instances of the Custodian General’s supervision over estate executors.
Representing a Billionaire in a Dispute with His Former Son-in-Law
A tumultuous seven-year family conflict ended with the issuance of a ruling by Israel’s Supreme Court. The Court ruled in our client’s favor that funds allocated by him for the benefit of his daughter and which were managed by his former son-in-law in various investments were meant to be held in trust and were not given as a gift, as the son-in-law claimed.
The Supreme Court ruled that a trustee will be appointed to manage the trust in accordance with its goals, that the former son-in-law must return the funds to the trust, and that the trustee shall be entitled to take any action necessary to recoup all of the trust’s assets, including the funds the son-in-law allegedly embezzled. In addition, the Supreme Court ordered the son-in-law to bear our client’s legal fees and expenses amounting to NIS 1.25 million.
