With 30 years of experience, Avi is acknowledged for the strength, depth and range of his intellectual property and technology-related law practice, which is unparalleled for its level of expertise, service and diversity. Avi provides strategic and legal counsel designed to assist international and domestic rights holders, from a wide spectrum of industries, in the use, enforcement, protection and commercialization of their valuable intellectual property in today’s rapidly-changing marketplace.
Avi is a specialist in respect of all areas of IP. As far as patent law is concerned, Avi's roster of clients is impressively diverse, and include leading companies and entities from diversified fields, such as Pharmaceuticals (Perrigo Inc., Celltrion Healthcare), Agro-chemicals (Adama Agricultural Solutions Ltd.), Medical Devices (such as Nova-Sight Ltd.), Research Institutions (such as the Weizmann Institute of Science) and many more (such as ITIS Transportation Services Ltd., Absolute Technologies Ltd., Rav-Bariah Industries Ltd.). Avi has been involved in many precedent-setting and high-profile cases, including in a pioneering decision declaring the relative weakness of the presumption of validity of a granted patent that was not independently examined in Israel compared to a patent that underwent such examination (CA 2554/06 Decell Inc. v. ITIS Transportation Services Ltd.).
