M. Firon & Co. Advocates & Notaries
About

For over 65 years, M. Firon & Co. has stood out as one of Israel’s largest and most prestigious law firms. The firm was one of the first (and few) Israeli law firms to offer international services, and is currently operating eight branches in Israel and abroad, with a legal team of over 200 professionals.

The firm, currently headed by Adv. Zvi Firon, was founded in 1950, by Adv. Jacob Shimshon Shapiro, Israel’s first Attorney General (1948-1950) and Minister of Justice in Israel’s 13th, 14th, and 15th governments (1966-1973) and Adv. Michael Firon. For over six decades, the firm has grown and flourished along with the Israeli economy, acquiring expertise and experience in representing diverse clients in all fields of commercial law and litigation.

The firm’s success is based on the traditional values of the legal profession instilled by its founders – uncompromising professionalism, loyalty, and discreetness. On this solid foundation, a modern, energetic, and innovative law firm was built, offering its clients comprehensive legal services, while demonstrating creativity, strategic involvement in the client’s decision-making process, extraordinary proficiency in the international business arena, and a total commitment to the client’s needs.

This unique combination of tradition and innovation enables the firm to foster decades-long relationships with some of its most prominent clients, as well as to rapidly acquire a thorough understanding of the legal and business needs of new clients. The firm’s clients include some of the most active and well-known businesspeople and companies in Israel and abroad, including governmental ministries agencies and companies, industrial companies, multinational companies and leading publicly traded and privately held companies. The firm’s clients operate in every sector of industry and commerce, including technology and hi-tech, insurance, infrastructures and projects, defense, real estate, tourism, banking and finance, distribution and franchising, venture capital and private equity, energy, pharmaceuticals and healthcare, telecoms and media and more.

The firm’s impressive capabilities have been vastly acknowledged by Israeli and international ranking guides, who bestow high rankings upon the firm’s departments and partners year after year.

M. Firon & Co. has been chosen as the sole representative, in Israel and Romania, of Interlaw - a prestigious network that incorporates dozens of top law firms worldwide.

The firm’s commitment to its unique values is manifested in the exclusive selection of its legal professionals, acknowledging that a law firm’s most precious asset is the excellence of its team. Thus, many of the firm’s partners have worked with it for years, some spending their entire careers at the firm, having started as interns. In addition, the firm’s attorneys have advanced degrees and certifications in law and other fields, such as accounting, business administration, economics, philosophy, and the social sciences from top universities in Israel and abroad. Many attorneys have also worked in the US and Europe, and some have business and managerial experience in non-legal disciplines, such as finance, insurance, pharmaceuticals and technology. This unique mix of values, skills, and experience ensures that M. Firon & Co. will continue to thrive and provide its clients with unparalleled service – service built on tradition and driven by innovation.
