S. Horowitz & Co.
31 Ahad Ha’am Street,
Founded in 1921, S. Horowitz & Co. has long been recognized as one of Israel’s premier law firms – distinctive, high caliber and with a reputation for providing excellence, speed and efficiency (described by Global Chambers, inter alia as “in a class of its own”, and “offering services on the level of City of London and Wall Street law firms”). The firm’s unwavering focus on fulfilling its clients’ business objectives has been the hallmark of its success. This has accredited us the reputation as ‘trusted advisor’ by members of the international and Israeli business and financial communities, who regularly instruct us on providing them with the full spectrum of corporate, commercial and dispute resolution services.
In addition to being Israel’s premier law firm, S. Horowitz & Co. is also one of Israel’s largest law firms, having brought together a team of exceptional and talented lawyers, including many who are multilingual and have qualified and practiced as lawyers in the US, England, South Africa and elsewhere.
Aviation Law has been part of our firm’s practice since the 1940s, if not before. Among the firm’s first clients in this field was British Airways Overseas Corporation (BOAC), which began operating flights to the region in 1940 and merged with British European Airways in 1974, to form British Airways PLC, which remains one of our clients. Over the course of many years, our Aviation and Transport Group has accumulated extensive experience advising clients in these fields, providing both matter-specific and ongoing legal counsel to foreign and national airlines, satellite operators, suppliers of rolling stock and suppliers of international courier and transportation services. Our advice is sought on all aspects of their business operations, including general corporate work, tenders, negotiation of commercial and operational agreements, acquisition and financing transactions in Israel, regulatory matters and court proceedings involving industry-specific disputes and liability claims.

Horowitz & Co.’s Aviation and Transport Group in the most prestigious band 1, stating that the team is “very thorough, responsive and knowledgeable, and have a very strong team of highly capable lawyers” and that they possess “great capabilities in dealing with large-scale, complex projects which involve several legal disciplines”.
