Diplomatic Law

Carmon & Carmon is a leading Israeli firm in matters of sovereign immunity, diplomatic immunity and law and consular immunity and law. The firm has represented the United States government for 31 years, regularly appearing in Israeli court in cases to which the U.S. government is a party most of them involved issues of immunity, sovereign, diplomatic or consular.

The firm also serves the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv as embassy lawyers on non-litigation matters such as labor law and commercial transactions. Furthermore, the firm’s principal successfully represented the European Union in civil litigation cases in Israel.

Carmon & Carmon’s experience, track record and clientele all point to its expertise in the areas of diplomatic law and immunity, and to its ability to meet the needs of these missions and their governments, in addition to those of businesses and individuals.

    "Haggai deftly handled all of the arguments [in court], and was clearly in command from the beginning. The difference in quality between our lawyer and the plaintiff’s was stark. It was like watching an excited Chihuahua yap at a seasoned Great Dane – the Chihuahua can make all the noise it wants, but the Great Dane clearly calls the shots. I wanted to emphasize how fortunate we were to have Haggai on our side today."
