Who's Who Legal Private Client: Lawyers

Meir Linzen (Doctor of Philosophy, PhD honoris causa, Tel Aviv University) has over 30 years of experience in the legal profession and is regarded as one of Israel's leading tax experts. He is managing partner and head of the tax and private clients departments at Herzog Fox & Neeman (HFN), Israel’s largest law firm. Meir has been a partner at the firm since 1987. Both HFN's tax department and Meir have been ranked highly in leading international law directories, including Chambers Global, The Legal 500, ITR World Tax, Dun & Bradstreet and more.

Meir specialises in advising high-net-worth individuals in their domestic and international tax and estate matters. Meir has extensive experience dealing with complex international situations encountered by families, including transfer of wealth between generations, reorganisation of family holdings and advice regarding complex trust structures. In addition, he advises on tax issues relating to international mergers and acquisitions in Israel, and international and cross-border tax planning for multinational corporations and families.

Meir serves as chairman of a multitude of organisations and committees, including the Israeli Bar’s tax committee; the Society of Trusts and Estates Practitioners; and the scientific committee of the International Fiscal Association’s Israel branch. He is a member of numerous NGOs and president of the International Association of Jewish Lawyers and Jurists; he also sits on the executive council of Tel Aviv University, where he was recently granted an honorary Doctorate of Philosophy.

Meir has served as an adjunct professor of tax law at the universities of Tel-Aviv, Bar Ilan and Ben Guri, among others.

Meir graduated from Tel-Aviv University (honours, 1980) and was admitted as a member of the Israeli Bar Association in 1982.
