‘The team at Herzog Fox Neeman has become like a family to us. Yair Geva, the head of the team, is my close confidant, friend and ally, and his advice and input are ones that I consider most valuable. Their expertise in privacy, corporate law, and fundraising legal matters is unmatched in the Israeli legal industry.’

‘Yair Geva, my main point of contact, is the biggest “problem solver” I’ve ever met and his ability to bridge gaps between different parties of the deal is unmatched. His 24/7 availability and incredibly thorough work are crucial to me as a growth stage CEO and his massive deal making experience is extremely valuable in every deal, fund raise or M&A we execute.’

‘What is unique with the team is that in parallel to legal advice they have strong knowledge of business as well as the most important element of start-ups: raising funds. That experience saves time, money, and prevent mistakes that later on might have cost a fortune to fix. Further, the team has a wide set of capabilities that can be pooled in for consultation at no time, and makes HFN a one-stop-shop. For a fast growing start-up, the capability to have your legal firm part of your go-to team is critical to its success.’

‘I would like to mention specifically two partners that were working with us from the get-go: Hanan Haviv and Yoni Frider. There are three things that differentiate them from all the rest: (i) dedication: They care for the success of the company. (ii) Knowledge: Both Hanan and Yoni have the knowledge we were looking for: from funds raising, strategic contracts negotiations with customers, and board management. (iii) accessibility: Both Hanan and Yoni were available anytime, regardless of time zone, weekends or holidays. As a CEO this is what I expected from partners in a firm that practically became part of our company.’

‘The HFN Hi-Tech team is extremely dedicated and available for the immediate and urgent legal needs of the company.’

‘HFN can provide total solutions to the highest standard available in the market. No matter how small the subject is, HFN provides good attention followed by highest quality of outputs.’

‘I am super, super satisfied with the Yair Geva team. There is a diverse team supporting any business need (investment, HR, business, privacy), super professional, lots of start-up experience. They have the unique combination of lawyers who understand the business needs and do not just follow the rules.’

‘I find Yair Geva and Tomer Farkash to be excellent business partners, always available 24/7 for us, extremely sharp, efficient, fair in pricing, and also customers and investors enjoy working with them from the other side. Yair and Tomer are both true deal makers.’

As a top Israeli law firm, we aspire to be a leader in the field of diversity, having initiated programs and processes that have expanded the diversity of our own employees, both through targeted recruitment, as well as through the support, development and advancement of employees within the firm.

Further to Herzog Fox & Neeman’s values of a diverse and skilled workforce and, in addition to years of emphasizing and implementing a diversity plan and a Diversity Committee within the culture of the firm, Herzog Fox & Neeman has taken an active role in Zionism 2000 – a leading social non-profit in Israel.
