Many businesses owe their success to their reputation. The reputation of such businesses reflects the collective trust of buyers, consumers, users, recommenders or clients. Israeli class action law enables consumers to also express collective mistrust of businesses that let them down or service providers that wronged them. ES, Eli Shimony Attorneys-at-Law, will assist you in filing applications for approval of claims as class actions, against businesses, pursuant to consumer protection laws.
For many clients of ES, Eli Shimony Attorneys-at-Law, class actions go beyond the context of law and justice. Class actions are expressions of a fault or defect in the relationship between supplier and customer, employer and employee, authority and citizen.
In the free market economy characteristic of most western countries, the common approach is that market forces are operating in an accessible, free, open and competitive environment. In reality, in almost any economy, there are monopolies that control a certain industry and abuse the lack of competition in that field. If you or your business were wronged by monopolistic or aggressive conduct, ES, Eli Shimony Attorneys-at-Law, will examine whether your case is appropriate for an inspection by the Israeli Antitrust Authority.
The law also allows a class action plaintiff to file a complaint against any government or municipal authority in Israel or any corporation established by Israeli law (such as an authority or government company). The plaintiff may demand the return of funds illegally charged by the authority. These may be taxes, fees, fines, charges or any other mandatory payment collected from the plaintiff and from the public it represents.
