Adv. Raphael Melman, R.I.P (1954-2022) - M. Firon & Co. Advocates

Raphael Melman, R.I.P (1954-2022)

Partner

Raphael Melman was a partner in the firm’s Commercial Law Dep until 2022.

Raphael was one of Israel’s most renowned and well-respected attorneys in the field of commercial law, and has represented some of Israel’s largest companies for many years.

Up until the time of his death in March 2022, Adv. Raphael (Rafi) Melman, RIP (1954-2022) was a partner in our firm’s Commercial Law Department. He was one of Israel’s most recognized and esteemed lawyers practising in the field of commercial law and as such, he represented some of Israel’s largest companies over many years..

Rafi had vast experience in representing companies on all aspects of their operations – and was involved both in their day-to-day operations and in the strategic events that occur in a company’s life. In addition to his work in commercial law, Rafi had an impressive track record in the fields of real estate, infrastructure and hotels, with over three decades of experience in providing legal support for many notable, large-scale transactions and projects.

Rafi represented some of Israel’s key, leading companies and entities. His clients included real estate developers, hotel chains, healthcare providers and other public and private entities, with nationwide real estate holdings in a cumulative value of billions of Shekels.

Together with his professional experience, Rafi took great pride in the personal relationships he formed with his clients; relationships which were personified by  his profound familiarity with the structure and characteristics of their businesses and with the markets in which they operate.

Alongside his professional resume, Raphael was a Lieutenant Colonel [retired], and served as Weapon Systems Officer in the Israeli Air Force.

Rafi Melman – of blessed memory
