From 18.02. to 01.03.2019 our managing director Oliver Biernat made a trip to Israel, where he visited many of our Israeli clients and potential clients in and around Tel Aviv, Yokne’am, Jerusalem and Lod.
He also attended the GGI ITPG Global Tax Summit in Tel Aviv from 24 to 27 February 2019 as Global Chairman of the GGI Practice Group International Tax Law. In the course of the conference he conducted a sham trial before a tax court with about 20 attendees, including transfer pricing, tax haven companies, legality of tax administration bankruptcy petitions, tax litigation issues, etc.
In between, he travelled the country for three days in a small group of three Americans and one Indian who also attended the conference. The group was particularly impressed by the Bahai Gardens in Haifa, the Golan Heights, the Sea of Galilee and above all by the bath in the Dead Sea. Oliver Biernat was sentenced to be the Chairman of the International Taxation Practice Group for another 3 years.
