Discovery, inspection and written interrogatories proceedings are available in Israel. There are no depositions, and, moreover, there is no pre-complaint discovery in Israel.
Interim orders such as Anton Piller-type search-and-seizure orders and receivership orders may also assist a party in the collection and preservation of evidence.
Discovery is not available against non-parties. However, a third party may be summoned to produce particular documents from third parties under subpoena duces tecum issued by the court on a party’s application. Disclosure from non-parties must be limited to specific documents.
