About Yaron Shidlo, Yitzhaki & Co. Law Firm

Yaron Shidlo, Yitzhaki & Co. is one of the leading firms in Israel’s tax law field. The majority of the firm’s activities focus on international taxation, and it also provides excellent legal services in the field of real estate taxation. All of the firm’s partners are former employees of the Israel Tax Authority, and thus they bring with them a great deal of unique experience and in-depth knowledge that they amassed from inside the system. The senior positions they held at the Tax Authority involved familiarity with the Authority’s proceedings, norms and directives, as well as extensive theoretical knowledge, resulting in in-depth expertise of the Authority’s modes of action in all fields. The synergy that arises from the firm’s extensive expertise in international taxation and its experience with the authorities creates added value that greatly benefit the firm’s clients.

The boutique firm enjoys a distinct mix that combines civil and criminal law with extensive international activities, focusing mainly on the EU, and especially England – including counseling residents returning from abroad. The firm specializes in civil matters, such as income tax, international taxation, Israeli taxes and real estate taxation, as well as representing clients in criminal cases, such as voluntary disclosure proceedings and criminal investigations in various tax-related fields. This combination of specialties can be attributed to the unique experience garnered by the firm’s partners – Adv. Yaron Shidlo in the field of international taxation and Adv. Eli Yitzhaki in the field of Israeli tax law, both civil and criminal.
