Top Israeli firm raids Freshfields to boost international M&A

Freshfields corporate associate Tomer Maharshak is leaving to join Israel’s second largest law firm Balter, Guth, Aloni & Co.

Maharshak is a dual UK-Israeli qualified lawyer and a decorated Israeli Air Force officer. He has also previously worked for Israeli supreme court judges.

Moshe Balter, Balter, Guth Aloni’s senior partner said: “Balter, Guth, Aloni & Co. is one of Israel’s leading law firms. With Tomer’s recruitment, the firm will strengthen its cross-border platform.

“This will enable Israeli companies doing business overseas in general, and in the UK in particular, to receive the high quality legal services they currently receive by the firm in Israel”.
