The Real Estate and Tax Department
The Real Estate and Tax Department has extensive experience in all kinds of real estate transactions, including sale and lease transactions, contracting transactions, combination transactions, construction transactions and ’vacate & build’ transactions. The firm handles both residential and commercial real estate projects, including construction projects of office and high-tech complexes. The firm is deeply involved in all stages of its clients’ transactions – from the planning stage until their successful conclusion, and attends to the legal and taxation aspects of the transactions. The firm also leads the commercial and legal negotiations and the drafting of the agreements that comprise each transaction, and assists its clients in securing adequate project financing.
The firm handles complex real estate transactions both in Israel and in Europe. Recently, the firm has handled the planning, establishment, and marketing of commercial centers, industrial parks, residential projects, yielding assets, hotels, ’vacate& build’ projects, and has represented several purchase groups and prominent real estate entrepreneurs in Israel, the UK and other countries. The firm also specializes in planning and construction law and in complex real estate tax planning and has represented its clients before Israeli courts and appeal committees in tax related matters. The firm strives to provide its clients with the most economic tax planning, while taking into consideration the particular characteristics of each transaction and each client’s special needs and interests.
The creative and successful tax advice rendered by the firm for its clients and approved by the courts, has so far led to several amendments of the Israeli Law of Real Estate Tax.
