The founder of the firm, Yaron Kosteliz, is ‘thought to be one of the stars in the “white-collar” crime sector in Israel’ (Globes, 9·3.2014), and his clients consist of key persons in the world of business and politics in Israel. By the time he was 29 years old, Kosteliz was rated in the first list of ‘40 by 40’ in G magazine, belonging to Globes newspaper (2006), and was included in the lists of exceptional lawyers in The Marker newspaper (2008), Ma’ariv (2011 and 2013), and on the website Nana1o (2014).

Co-founder and managing partner Yoav Segal has considerable experience in civil litigation in the court forum, in arbitration, and before labour courts as well as in representing defendants in white-collar crimes. His practice is divided between managing different civil and public litigation cases, including class actions and administrative litigation, and handling commercial and real estate transactions, both private and commercial.
