September 9th, 2013 Back to all news

Gornitzky represented a former CEO in the rejection of NIS 6.8 million of corporate embezzlement charges filed by the company he had headed, and in filing a countersuit against the company.


Regional Labor Court Justice Ilan Itah decreed that the payments received by the CEO are neither the fruits of embezzlement nor an unusual scheme, as wrongfully argued by the employer. The judge subsequently rejected the majority of the suit, while partially accepting the counter claim made by the CEO following which he ruled that the parties must settle accounts for certain amounts owed to one another.


The CEO was represented by Ofer Tzur (Partner, Head of Litigation) and Harel Shaham (Partner).
