Our Litigation Department has a subdivision dedicated to class actions that has accumulated knowledge and expertise from complex claims in the case of giant companies and organizations in Israel.
Led by Menachem Abramovich, this specialist team handles large-scale class actions on behalf of large groups in the Israeli market and around the world, some of which have raised precedential issues.
The firm’s clients include highly influential organizations in the Israeli economy, including major banks, public and private companies in the construction development and contracting sectors, high-tech and biotech companies, and others.
The reputation the firm has gained over the years in litigation, reflects directly on its activity in the field of class actions. The firm’s most prominent class actions include the following noteworthy cases: representation of a major bank in a class action amounting to about one billion shekels, filed against a number of mortgage banks regarding their activity in the field of insurance; representation of vending machine companies in a class action amounting to one quarter of a billion shekels, filed against a multinational soft drink company regarding violation of antitrust law and specific orders of the Antitrust Commissioner; representation of a public body regarding a fundamental action concerning marine pollution. We also provide advice to large companies in Israel under threat of class action suits, and legal advice as to how to avoid being sued in a class action.
