Founding Partner


Yair has worked in the field of taxation for the last 20 years and over time has acquired broad legal knowledge and extensive experience in all areas of Israeli taxation, as well as in a wide range of complex international taxation issues.

During his years of experience, Yair has handled a broad range of issues, assessments, and appeals encompassing virtually every possible taxation law subject in Israel. He has provided his services to individuals, residents of Israel and foreigners, private companies, public companies, multinational corporations, funds, trusts, investment partnerships, and nonprofit organizations.
Yair serves as legal advisor to some of the largest accounting firms in Israel, providing advice with regards to the tax issues encountered by their clients, including drafting legal opinions, and provides legal support during tax authority assessment proceedings and representation in the courts. In addition, Yair deals with voluntary disclosure of foreign accounts and non-disclosed trusts, while legally representing clients in audit proceedings, and advises families on the changes in trust law and compliance with reporting requirements in Israel with respect to foreign and local trusts. Yair has accumulated a wealth of legal experience, especially in the field of equity-based employee compensation schemes (options, shares, RSUs and additional instruments) and he regularly advises multinational corporations concerning remuneration strategy for workers in Israel.
Yair began his legal career as an associate and subsequently as a partner in the taxation department of Yigal Arnon & Co, where he learned to integrate taxation advice within the spectrum of commercial, business, economic and legal considerations underlying his clients’ decisions. Establishing the firm of Benjamini & Co constituted the natural continuation of this approach, reflecting Yair’s desire to offer his services and those of the partners and assistant attorneys working with him to a broader range of clients.
