Please send your current resume or CV and a cover letter setting out your plans for moving to Israel and any other information you feel we should know to Alan Sacks (email@example.com). We will not contact current or former employers without your approval.
We are always looking to recruit talented and motivated attorneys who are looking for a challenging and rewarding work environment with long term career prospects. Candidates who join us will find themselves playing a key role in complicated and innovative legal work, with real opportunities to be a part of the team.
We are keen to hear from candidates from both the private and public sector who are interested in joining our team.
Qualifying as a lawyer in Israel may involve a set of preliminary exams (‘Dinei Yisrael’), an internship period and sitting for the Israeli Bar exam. However, the exact requirements depend on the jurisdiction in which you are qualified and the amount of post-qualification experience that you have. For more information, please see the Israel Bar Association website (www.israelbar.org.il).
We are always looking for motivated qualified lawyers from outside Israel who are moving to Israel, especially those from the USA, the UK, Canada and Australia. We are keen to recruit talented and experienced lawyers who can help us develop our international practice in a wide variety of practice areas.
We are particularly interested in lawyers who have experience in the fields of corporate, M&A, hi-tech, banking and finance or corporate securities.
In my role as an intern at HFN and subsequently as a lawyer, I was involved in some extremely interesting litigation files in the area of civil, commercial and administrative law. HFN is involved in major cases in these fields and represents clients in some of the most significant cases in Israel.
For myself, the opportunity to participate in such files, not only makes the work more stimulating but also gives me a considerable amount of personal career satisfaction.
In my work in HFN’s litigation department, I mainly concentrate on drafting legal documents, including legal opinions and pleadings to be filed to the court. I also appear regularly before the court and as part of my work, I meet with both Israeli clients as well as clients from overseas whom I represent.
One of the outstanding features at HFN, which I find to be very important, is the fact that the handling of a case is invariably conducted by a team which greatly engenders a synergy of ideas and solutions not only within the litigation department, but also across the relevant practice areas within HFN, which are relevant to the file.
The depth of knowledge and legal experience which are required on a daily basis, are available across the different practice areas of HFN, being both an invaluable as well a crucial part of my work within the firm’s litigation department.
Work within the litigation department is not only varied but also gives a substantial amount of fulfillment, whilst at the same time involving a continuous process of adding to my knowledge and development as a litigation lawyer.
