Israel > Telecoms and media

The client list of FISCHER (FBC & Co.) includes large international technology giants as well as major Israeli household names in the telecoms and media sectors. Yoram Bonen, who is a powerhouse in regulatory matters particularly in the communications, oil, energy and food industries, leads the team; Barak Glickman is also highly active in regulatory work. For commercial matters, Amit Dat is a key contact and also handles transactional issues, and litigator Yael Riemer recently represented Facebook in a matter dealing with privacy claims and class actions. Doron Kol and Omri Rachum-Twaig were both recently promoted to the partnership.

Israel > Dispute resolution: local litigation and arbitration

FISCHER (FBC & Co.) has a strong pedigree for representing prestigious multinational and domestic corporates in proceedings before courts of all instances and regulatory authorities. In addition, it also has an excellent record of successfully resolving disputes through arbitration and mediation. The heavyweight team includes Reuven Behar, who is highly reputed for competition and IP disputes, and various other complex commercial matters. Behar co-heads the practice with Gil Orion; they collectively have over 70 years of dispute resolution experience. Reflective of wider market trends, the team has been increasingly active in disputes involving domestic and international energy companies, infrastructure and construction claims, and cases brought by liquidators and trustees of distressed companies. Elsewhere, the firm is a notable powerhouse for real estate litigation. It also sees a significant amount of work in relation to online platforms and social media; in one mandate, Yael Riemer is leading the advice to TikTok on a claim brought by Amir Hetsroni (a well-known figure in Israel) over the removal of his user account for an alleged violation of the platform’s terms of service and community guidelines. Also notable is that, in 2020, Orion, Riemer and others acted for Facebook at the Tel Aviv District Court (and subsequently at the Supreme Court) in civil claims filed by NSO Technologies’ employees, whose Facebook accounts were disabled; the case raised fundamental questions over privacy laws and rights. Tamar Turjeman-Kedem, Meital Ben-Basat, Oded Revivo and associate Chen Cohen are among other names to note in the team, which was bolstered by the arrivals of Aya Reich – Mina and Liron Usherovich from Amit, Pollak, Matalon & Co. Advocates and Notary in June 2021.
