Adv. Arie Neiger a partner and the Head of Environmental Law department, and Adv. Shalev Brants an associate in the firm’s Environmental department, represented Haifa Port Company and four of its officers in an environmental lawsuit they faced.
The Court accepted Haifa Port Company’s arguments emphasizing HPC activities in order to prevent recurrence of pollution.
The Court also mentioned that punishing a governmental company, in this kind of cases, is punishing the public rather punishing the actual persona who is responsible for the damage that occurred.
