Arnon, Tadmor-Levy‘s recent merger saw the addition of former Tadmor Levy partner Boaz Feinberg to Yigal Arnon’s robust practice. Feinberg, who is praised for his understanding of the ‘complex issues associated with clients who have cross-border connections’, brings experience in corporate and private client tax matters. He joins a department that already had a strong international dimension, particularly in regard to supporting on multi-jurisdictional transactions. Ofir Levy, who handles an array of advisory and contentious matters, is a further name to note.
