Gornitzky & Co. represented Adv. Dr. Joshua Rosensweig (a former senior partner at Gornitzky and one of Israel’s foremost businessmen) before the Israeli Supreme Court in a lawsuit in which Adv. Avi Gera claimed that Dr. Rosensweig allegedly prevented Adv. Gera from his share in their dissolved joint firm’s alleged reputation. Adv. Gera estimated his share of the firm’s reputation at NIS 9 million when filing the lawsuit in 2004.
The Supreme Court ruled in favor of Dr. Rosensweig, and affirmed the January 2011 District Court decision which stated that only in rare cases does a law firm have a reputation separate from the identity of its partners. The District Court referred specifically to Gornitzky & Co. as an example of a highly respected firm with a reputation independent from its partners.
The team handling the representation included Mr. Pinhas Rubin (Firm Chairman), Mr. Noam Ronen (Partner) and Mr. Ofer Fleischer.
