New Civil Procedure Regulations in Israel.

On January 1, 2021, the Israel Civil Court system implemented new Civil Procedure Regulations. These regulations apply to all civil lawsuits in all civil courts in Israel. There are four significant aspects to the new regulations which will have an impact on lawsuits filed by our clients: 1. Court documents such as petitions, Statements of Claim and Statements of Defense must adhere to a prescribed format and page number limits. 2. In most cases, oral hearings and oral summations will be preferred over submission of written affidavits and written summations. 3. Preliminary proceedings to resolve litigation efficiently will be prioritized during which time the scope of cases that proceed to litigation will be clearly defined. 4. The parties to a lawsuit will be required to meet, in person or via teleconference, before the first Court hearing, in an attempt to clearly define their dispute. Following the meeting, the parties will be required to report to the Court on the outcome of the meeting. We are optimistic that these modifications will improve the efficiency and efficacy of litigation in the Israel Civil Courts. We anticipate that the emphasis on preliminary activities and proceedings will alter the timeline of costs incurred to our clients.
