Adv. Nahum Amit graduated law school in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1947. He practiced law in Argentina until 1954, when he made “Aliyah” to Israel. In 1956 he was admitted to the Israeli bar association and founded the law firm, later to become known as Amit, Pollak, Matalon & Co.
In 1969, Adv. Amit was appointed Honorary Consul of Paraguay in Israel, and in 1993 he was certified to practice law in Madrid, Spain.
Adv. Amit practiced law for over 50 years- until his final days. He was an enthusiastic Zionist and one of the founding fathers of Israel’s manufacturing industry. Nahum was our mentor, our friend and a source of inspiration to all of us.
Nahum was a true professional, but first and foremost he was an honest person with great admiration for the human spirit and mankind. He had a wonderful sense of humor and a passion for life. We have been blessed to be living his vision and to have enjoyed his wise advice and kind words. He was dignified in every way and remains an example of excellence to us all.
His memory remains in our hearts, as we carry on his legacy with great pride.
Excellence Entails Great Responsibility
Upon its establishment in 1956, APM & Co. created a policy stating its corporate responsibility to the community. Ever since, we have operated and acted accordingly. At APM & Co. we are constantly in search of ways to increase our involvement in society, while strengthening the community in which we live and work. We strive to make a significant contribution to the community and to Israeli society at large, with an emphasis on disadvantaged groups, in a manner that is discreet, modest, and sincere.
Our corporate responsibility activities include:
Organizational Activities – We make an effort to create different opportunities for our employees to volunteer for the benefit of the community.
Personal Initiatives – We encourage employees to make a change by supporting their initiatives and helping them achieve various social goals.
At APM & Co. we believe that enabling various opportunities for volunteering, as well as encouraging employees to give back to the community is the best approach to creating true social commitment.
We consider ourselves responsible for strengthening the position of women in the business environment and assisting in their success. Women have always been a substantial and essential part of our human resources and constitute a significant part of our management and partnership team.
We are proud of the number of female partners and attorneys among our ranks, and have won an award for assisting in the advancement of women.
Affirmative Action And Diversity
At APM & Co. we believe in equal opportunities and encourage the participation of different and diverse populations within the firm. We make sure we treat every candidate equally and fairly and make a point to integrate disabled and older populations who encounter employment difficulties.
Our legal team takes an active role in the “Schar Mitzvah” program of the Israeli Bar Association. This program provides legal advice to disadvantaged individuals.
In addition, the firm’s lawyers are encouraged to take on pro-bono cases, helping those in need.
As one of the leading law firms in Israel, we consider ourselves an integral part of the community. Accordingly, we set aside part of our resources for donations to social, communal, and environmental projects.
