About Ginsburg & Co., Advocates
Ginsburg & Co.’s core mission is to provide comprehensive and uniquely tailored legal solutions to its practice of private clients and to an array of financial institutions. Founded by veteran attorney Ifat Ginsburg, GAC straddles the heart of Tel-Aviv’s financial hub, reflecting its exceptional position in advising Israel’s rapidly expanding private capital base.
GAC’s core legal expertise melds the more traditional aspects of family law together with all the relevant physical aspects (including international tax laws, regulation, banking, compliance and international private laws).
The firm’s attorneys have accumulated an extensive track record in providing legal consult to high net worth individuals, ultra-high net worth individuals, international financial institutions, families, family offices, trustees and protectors, bringing to bear their unique fusion of family, contractual, tax, compliance and banking expertise to craft and deploy legally advantageous solutions both in Israel and on a cross-border basis.
In doing so, GAC attorneys have provided advice and guidance on diverse matters such as complex trusts, asset protection trust, incorporation of Private Trust Companies for UHNWI, pre and post-nuptial agreements, estates, probates and wills, international tax planning, establishment of Single Family Office for UHNWI, philanthropy, appointment and advice to guardians and attorneys (pursuant to personalized durable power of attorney) and management of property of HNWI/ UHNWI who became legally incapacitated.
The firm has also extensive experience in advising family businesses/corporations, with respect to complex restructuring and formulating family constitutions and “family governance” guidelines required to preserve the family business in future generations.
GAC attorneys have participated in some of Israel’s most intricate family-related intergenerational transactions and restructuring exercises.
As part of its services, GAC attorneys seek to integrate and intimately acquaint themselves with their clients’ needs. The firm has both Israeli and foreign clients, with dynamic residencies and citizenships, requiring flexibility and, concurrently, a degree of caution in designing the legal and tax structure, remaining cognizant of the potentially far reaching ramification of such planning.
In doing so, GAC is exceptionally placed to draw upon the services of a substantial, highly regarded, worldwide network of professionals and to weave and harness the combined services of these professional for the purposes of producing optimal results for its clients.
In recent years, and drawing on this expertise, GAC has advised clients in managing complex, cross-border litigation in family, trust and inheritance matters (against trustees, protectors and family members).
In recent years, the firm’s attorneys have been appointed by the Israeli Family Court as executors of complex estates with international aspects.
Additionally, in light of recent developments in the high-tech and fintech industry, privately held in startups companies as well as cryptocurrencies and NFTs, have become an integral part of the assets of many clients (sometimes, the holdings in the startups companies consists a (too) substantial stake of the family wealth). Hence, the firm’s lawyers provide tailored solutions based on an understanding of such holdings/structure as well as their complexity (and the consequences of such holdings, in case of incapacitation or demise of the client).
The firm’s attorneys have also garnered substantial experience in providing guidance to foreign and Israeli-owned financial institutions (including, with respect to cross border, compliance, tax issues, CRS and FATCA) in successfully navigating the worldwide complex and briskly evolving regulatory environment.
The firm acts for a range of first-tier financial institutions, principally on regulatory, compliance and tax issues, including setting up of licensed entities and providing advice for such entities on an ongoing basis.
