International litigation is a case that involves individuals or companies that are domiciled in different countries, or a case that may be governed by different laws (not necessarily Israeli law).
Managing an international case requires a special skillset, and the firm has had extensive experience and a leadership position in this field, for over three decades.
Mr. Eytan Liraz received his legal training in Switzerland, following which he worked for several years in Geneva, Switzerland, and in New York, U.S.A. – two of the world’s top international law hubs. The firm’s experience in the conduct of international commercial arbitrations is unsurpassed in Israel. Mr. Liraz served for three years (2015-2018) as an Alternate Member at the ICC Court of Arbitration in Paris – currently the world’s top international arbitration institution.
The firm’s in-depth knowledge and experience in civil law (as practiced in Europe), and common law (as practiced in the U.S.), coupled with the Israeli experience in leading international cases, give Eytan Liraz & Co. a unique understanding of international legal systems, and a particular advantage in managing international cases.
The ability to analyze an international legal dispute, and impact its governing law or venue, thus impacting not only the legal outcome, but also the evidence that may be presented, the applicable procedure, and the available remedies, all constitute specialized expertise, the mastery of which in many cases marks the difference between losing and winning the battle.
The firm is frequently involved in many cross-border cases, for large international clients, who are represented by the firm in legal cases in Israel, as well as Israeli entities and businessmen for whom the firm conducts international cases both in and outside of Israel.
