Legal services for American Jews contemplating about Aliyah
For the American Jew contemplating aliyah and the native Israeli thinking of returning, coming to Israel is both rewarding - and very challenging. Among those challenges are concerns about purchasing rights, tax obligations, national insurance, rights to education for your children, and ultimately purchasing a home and setting up a business or finding a job. In addition, for those coming from the United States, there are inevitable questions about the interplay of tax obligations, passing American citizenship, and financial reporting to the IRS or Treasury.
For over thirty years, Adv. Jonathan Friedland served the United States as its single consular representative in all of northern Israel, while also acting as a private attorney admitted to the bar in New York State and in Israel. He has dealt with tens of thousands of Americans who sought his assistance on consular matters, and on private legal transactions, contracts, and enforcement of their rights. Mr. Friedland has brought those decades of expertise to the international law firm of Doron, Tikotzky, Kantor, Gutman, Ness, Amit Gross & Co. With offices in the BSR Center in Bnei Brak, Haifa, Bucharest, Nicosia, and New York, DTKGG provides full legal services for tax taw, capital markets, hi-tech, corporate law, insolvency and economic rehabilitation, labor law, relocation, real estate and civil-commercial litigation. The firm is staffed by lawyers who are themselves bi-national, with hands on experience in creating legal frameworks that maximize client flexibility and protection while comporting simultaneously with two or more legal jurisdictions. The firm is regularly called upon by the courts and the media to oversee the reorganization or rehabilitation of corporations, to manage bankruptcies, and to supply the public with information concerning individual or corporate rights. In the era of covid-19, DTKGG has been a constant source of guidance to small and large businesses as well as the general public seeking to cope with the drastic changes imposed by nature – and by the government.
