Our Firm has extensive experience in accompanying real estate projects and transactions in Israel and abroad, as well as large-scale projects in the field of residential, commercial, employment and hotel projects. Due to the complexity of the real estate sector, we adhere to strict personal accompaniment by our partners throughout all stages of the project.

The Department provides comprehensive and professional legal counsel to a wide range of real estate companies, of the largest in Israel, to investors, developers, contractors, purchase groups, real estate funds and local municipalities. As part of these services, legal advice is provided throughout the duration of the project from the planning phase, financing, construction, marketing and until registration of the project and obtaining all the certifications and permits. This applies to sales, acquisition, leasing, designation changes and combination transactions.
We accompany and advise at all significant milestones of the project, as well as providing ongoing tax consulting throughout the stages of the transaction. We consult on matters of betterment tax, purchase tax, municipal taxation, building and betterment levies, and accompany throughout the reservations and appeals processes before the Tax Authorities.
