Dikla Lavy-Fischer is regularly instructed by clients to advise on the Insolvency and Economic Rehabilitation Law (2019) and other complex financial regulation.

CLIENT: A Leading Food Conglomerate

COMPANY/FIRM: General Counsel

TESTIMONIAL: I highly recommend, based on my longstanding personal experience with Fischer Behar Chen Well Orion & Co, the Antitrust and Competition practice, the Corporate and M&A practice, and the Litigation practice.

Tal Eyal-Boger, head of Antitrust and Competition practice, is among the best lawyers in Israel in this practice. Other members of the practice are highly professional, and provide dedicated and extremely helpful advice, including in high pressure situations.

Avraham Well, head of the Corporate and M&A practice, is undoubtedly one of the best corporate lawyers in Israel, with endless legal knowledge coupled with very sound business and client understanding. Partners Ron Lehmann and Boaz Noiman are also highly recommended.

In the Litigation practice, I had excellent experience with Tamar Turjeman-Kedem who is very smart, knowledgeable and possess a unique bottom line orientation.


CLIENT: General Counsel

COMPANY/FIRM:  A group of international companies in the field of automation and motion control

TESTIMONIAL: Ron Lehmann of Fischer Behar Chen Well Orion and Co and his team have been advising us over the years on various commercial and corporate matters, including in complex cross-border transactions, for which their contribution was tremendous. Ron’s advice and support is extremely professional and pragmatic, together with high level of service responsiveness. Ron is a great team player and a pleasant person to work with, and I strongly recommend his services.


CLIENT: General Counsel

COMPANY/FIRM: A Leading Communications Conglomerate

TESTIMONIAL:  What strikes me most about FBC is their ability to “take charge” of the entire process from beginning to end. We receive complete guidance throughout every step of a transaction, starting from the early planning stages all the way to the final closing. The firm handles every step very seriously and carries out every detail at the highest level.

There is seamless harmony between the internal teams and departments at FBC. Even when working on very large and complex matters in which many lawyers from different practices are involved, there is a profound sense of order, a pleasant work environment and direct interaction with the relevant individuals providing a sense of organizational calm to the entire process.  


Pro Bono: FBC is active in promoting social causes in the community. The firm focuses on two main areas: the advancement of children and youth education from socially disadvantaged backgrounds and assistance to the elderly and Holocaust survivors. At the same time, firm employees contribute to the community in areas that they feel strongly about.
