Firon & Co. is one of Israel’s leading law firms in real estate, infrastructure, and project financing and has pioneered the urban renewal legal practices in Israel, including evacuation & construction and TAMA 38 earthquake retrofit projects. The firm’s partners have practicably paved the way in setting and defining the legal structure and policy in this area. As a result, M.

Urban renewal projects are extremely complex and call for extensive legal and practical experience in their handling, especially in understanding the sensitivity needed when one party consists of a large number of stakeholders.

M. Firon & Co.’s lawyers have a particularly seasoned practice in all stages of planning and implementing urban renewal projects from the most preliminary phases of contracts with apartment owners and initial checks, through the planning stages – both when promoting urban building plans and structuring complex consolidation and separation plans, onto registration and issuance of building permits, through financing and bank support, negotiation and completion of agreements with contractors and the implementation and construction stage, sale of the apartments, delivery to the owners and registering their rights in the Land Registry. M. Firon & Co.’s lawyers also have a proven successful track record in settling disputes arising during these projects, including representation in lawsuits in all levels of the courts and in arbitrations. But perhaps more important – the Firm’s experienced team has the ability to avoid disputes.
