Career

Adv. Gil Raveh, a founding partner of Raveh Haber & Co. (together with Adv. Miriam Haber), is one of Israel’s leading lawyers in the fields of taxation and investment funds, as recognised by many Israeli and international legal directories.

Gil possesses extensive experience in the fields of taxation, investment funds, international joint ventures and representation of high net-worth individuals in a broad range of matters within the taxation and finance arenas, accumulated over more than twenty five years of legal counseling. Moreover, Gil holds a unique specialisation in representing various types of Israeli institutions in their offshore real estate investments.

Gil specialises in the establishment and operation of a full range of investment funds, including some of Israel’s most prominent private equity fund and members of their senior management, representing institutional investors in their investments abroad and international gatekeepers and investments funds in their activities in Israel.

Gil’s specialization in international tax law, and especially in the taxation of partnerships, turned him into one of the most prominent attorneys representing Israeli clients in complex international real estate investments.

In addition, Gil represents a large number of private individuals, among them senior executives in the Israeli economy, as well as foreign nationals who are in Israel working for Israeli companies and high net worth families and individuals. He provides advice and assistance with regard to their employment contracts, with an emphasis on all relevant tax issues, compensation matters and pre-immigration planning family trusts and, cross-border inheritance.

After being admitted to the Israel Bar Association and the New York Bar Association, Gil worked as a tax associate in New York at Shearman & Sterling LLP and at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP.

When Gil returned to Israel in 2000, he served as a Tax and Funds partner in a number of leading Israeli firms prior to forming Raveh Haber & Co. in January 2013, together with Adv. Miriam Haber.

Gil is ranked as a leading attorney in his areas of practice by both Israeli and international legal ranking guides.
