Described as "formidable in court" by Chambers Global and "unbeatable" by the Legal 500, Yehoshua (Shuki) Horesh is widely acknowledged as being one of the leading litigators in Israel. Co-chairs the Dispute Resolution Practice Group, Shuki's practice encompasses the full range of commercial and corporate disputes with a particular emphasis on real estate disputes, construction, engineering and infrastructure disputes, energy related disputes, tenders, hostile takeovers, contracts, shareholder disputes, competition law and administrative law. Shuki has acted on many of the largest construction, town planning, infrastructure development and energy projects that have gone to tender in Israel in recent years, including the transfer of military and police schools and barracks to the Negev, the Fast Lane BOT project on Highway 1, the Tel Aviv-Jerusalem highway, the high-speed train service between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem and Highway 431. Shuki acts for many of the Israeli economy’s key players, including Paz Oil, Israel’s largest fuel company, the Israel Electric Corporation, Shapir Civil and Marine Engineering, the Minrav Group, Electra, a major electromechanical and construction company and a large number of quarry operators. He has instituted and defended challenges to tenders, regulatory approvals, zoning and land use regulations, environmental ordinances, health and safety compliance, project development agreements and construction and maintenance contracts. Shuki has also argued precedent-setting cases regarding public and private land use rights, including the conversion of agricultural land into residential land.
