Adv. Molho is one of the leading lawyers in Israel. His many areas of practice include business and corporate law, company rehabilitation and liquidation, telecommunications, copyright protection, intellectual property, and complex litigation. He has a wealth of experience representing clients ranging from large corporations and institutions to individual businessmen, from foreign governments to public bodies.
Among the many important matters he has handled is his victory in the major landmark case regarding copyright law in the Dead Sea Scrolls case (for an unofficial translation of the judgment
Since 2007, Adv. Molho has served as Special Administrator of one of Israel’s largest real estate and construction groups – Heftsiba – comprised of dozens of companies, which collapsed with debts in excess of one billion shekels while in the middle of building approximately 4,500 housing units for some 25,000 people. As a result of Adv. Molho and his team’s efforts, the housing units were successfully completed and the purchasers were able to retain their rights in the properties.
Previously, Adv. Molho has acted as the liquidator of the non-profit Or Hadash Association's building project in Ashdod, in which he devised a series of successful arrangements, whereby a large and multi-faceted building project (around 600 housing units) in the city of Ashdod was successfully rescued, and the unsecured creditors were able to receive payment in excess of 60% of their debts.
For the last several years, Adv. Molho has also acted as Special Administrator of Karta Central Jerusalem Development Company Ltd., the first government-owned company to undergo liquidation proceedings.
Under Isaac Molho’s direction, the company’s property was upgraded and a tender was held for the sale of the Karta parking lot, where the long-term leasehold rights to the parking lot were sold for an amount upward of NIS 100 million (which considerably exceeded the appraiser's valuation of the property).
Among Adv. Molho’s many activities outside of the firm, he serves in various public capacities, including as Chairman of the Board of the Israel Museum, as Honorary Consul-General of Austria in Jerusalem, and as a member of the Board of the Jewish People Policy Planning Institute.
During Benjamin Netanyahu's first period as Prime Minister (1996-1999), Adv. Molho – at the request of the Prime Minister – voluntarily fulfilled various special assignments on his behalf. These included acting as the Prime Minister’s personal envoy, and as chief negotiator on behalf of the Government of Israel to the leadership of the Palestinian Authority and its former Chairman, Yassir Arafat, under the auspices of the United States.
In recognition of his work in the Heftsiba matter inter alia, the Israeli Bar (Tel Aviv District) magazine named Adv. Molho its "Lawyer of the Year" for 2008.
