Hagit Ben Moshe

Hagit is one of the leading attorneys in Israel advising kibbutzim, moshavim, and cooperative societies in relation to all real-estate matters, including planning, construction, and litigation.

Hagit provides legal advice and assistance in relation to complex real estate transactions and business ventures. These include transactions to rezone agricultural land for commerce and employment; renewable energy and infrastructure transactions (power plants, pumped-storage hydroelectricity, wind turbines, solar, thermo-solar, photovoltaic, and biogas turbines); the establishment of commercial complexes; income-generating real estate transactions, tourism ventures (holiday villages, hotels, guest houses, B&Bs, and tourist attractions); the establishment of fuel stations; electricity sector transactions (electricity distributors, net metering, electricity purchases); medical cannabis; and more.

 

Hagit provides advice and assistance to her clients throughout all stages of a transaction – negotiations with entrepreneurs; finding the desirable corporate structure; financing aspects; reporting to the tax authorities; the obtainment of all requisite approvals, including the receipt of approvals from lien-holders, if any; and completion of land rezoning proceedings with both the planning and building authorities and the Israel Land Authority.

 

Hagit has extensive experience advising kibbutzim, moshavim and cooperative societies during various proceedings with the Israel Land Authority. These include proceedings to regulate land uses, cases of demands to return land to the State (inter alia, due to plans for construction in preferred areas for housing), objections to real-estate assessments, and the obtainment of permits for nonconforming use from the competent authority in the Ministry of Agriculture. She also provides ongoing and intensive legal assistance to cooperative societies in relation to diverse issues, including members’ rights to residences (attribution of housing, restructuring of the society, etc.).

 

Hagit boasts extensive experience representing cooperative societies before planning and building committees and appeals committees, as well as during appeals to administrative affairs courts and in petitions to the High Court of Justice.

 

In addition to her legal practice, Hagit is a lecturer at national and regional conferences, seminar days, continuing education courses, etc.

 

Before joining our firm in 2019, Hagit was a partner and the head of the real estate in the cooperative societies department at a leading law firm.

Marketing of Agricultural Land

Adv. Hagit Ben Moshe, who leads the kibbutz and agricultural sector at our firm, was interviewed by TheMarker. Hagit emphasized in the interview that purchasing land, unlike buying an apartment, is primarily at the theory level. "In most cases, companies in this field sell you an option to rights in the land, dependent on several conditions, such as changing the land's designation and completing the planning. Unless the plan is already approved, no one can guarantee you with any certainty on when or if the conditions will be met and your dreams will come true. We've encountered several cases where people buy agricultural land based on promises from the authorities, and then the authorities back down from the plans, or even expropriate the land for themselves. If the authorities cannot provide certainty, then certainly the people in sales offices can’t either."
