Who are we looking for?
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.
What experience is relevant?
We are particularly interested in lawyers who have experience in the fields of corporate, M&A, hi-tech, banking and finance or corporate securities.
How long in advance should I apply?
There are no hard and fast rules; in our experience, it is best to contact us as soon as you are making plans for moving to Israel.
Do I need to speak Hebrew?
Simply put – no. While a knowledge of Hebrew is definitely a major asset (both in respect to settling into Israeli society and in terms of career), it is not an essential requirement for recruitment. However, it is worth pointing out that the Israeli bar exam is in Hebrew (see below regarding qualifying in Israel).
Will my experience be taken into account in allocating work?
Yes – we expect experienced lawyers to do the same level of work as they were doing before they joined HFN. There may be a short ‘getting to know you’ period, but as soon as we see that a lawyer can handle responsibility, we will be happy to accommodate.
