The largest real estate transactions in Israel demand original thinking and legal innovation that consider all the complex planning, licensing, taxation and other commercial issues. Our Planning and Zoning department’s experience is unique in that we have created out-of-the-box and innovative solutions to planning and zoning challenges facing major real estate companies, owners, entrepreneurs and investors, as well as corporations, local authorities and planning institutions.
With a reputation for the utmost professionalism and dedication, we accompany the largest transactions in Israel, from the initial planning stage, through all planning procedures to legal representation before all courts until the options granted by the law are fully exhausted. Our successful track record lies in our instinct, ability and the resources at our disposal. This allows us to come up with the most creative answers to difficult questions around planning and zoning, acting as a bridge to international parties involved in the vibrant and fluid Israeli real estate sector.
We specialize in promoting urban development plans that require building permits, we advise on urban renewal projects (Pinui-Binui and TAMA 38), and act in complex cases surrounding improvement levies. Furthermore, we also represent clients in claims for planning damages, expropriation cases, objections to complex plans, and applications for permits, and more. We help to successfully negotiate development and other agreements between authorities and entrepreneurs.
Given our diverse roster of clients and the longstanding experience we have in-house, we are experts in a range of specialties and sub-specialties, enabling us to handle all the complex types of activity required in relation to planning law. As such, our lawyers have been party to the some of the most pivotal transactions and cases in the field.
We place a great deal of emphasis on developing a thorough understanding in urban planning, among others, without which it is impossible to provide the comprehensive legal service for which we are known. Furthermore, in order to provide the highest standards of service, we work closely and in full cooperation with our other departments to ensure we provide the most effective and original legal advice possible.
