Profile

Ofer Granot is a tax and incentives partner focusing in two areas – tax controversy and litigation & governmental incentives.

Ofer has extensive experience in advising on all aspects of incentives matters, including R&D and innovation incentives (funding of the National Authority for Technological Innovation, the Office of the Chief Scientist (OCS), bi-national programs, the EU), tax incentives (investment funds rulings, preferred enterprises, the Angels Law, 20A deductions) and incentives for trade, export and employment. Within the scope of his work, Ofer advises on applications for incentives and on optimization of M&As, investments, liquidations, corporate restructuring, joint ventures and day-to-day operations under the restrictions that the various incentives involve.

Ofer was closely involved in the major reform in the R&D Law which led to the establishment of the National Authority for Technological Innovation, as well as in the drafting of new regulations by the OCS. Ofer appeared before the OCS and before the Finance Committee of the Knesset on the reform and advised various NGOs which took part in these legislative efforts. 

In the tax field, Ofer specializes in tax controversy and tax litigation, in domestic and multi-jurisdictional matters. He is highly experienced in representing clients in tax audits and administrative proceedings before the Israeli Tax Authority, in tax appeals before the Israeli courts and in Mutual Agreement Procedures.

Ofer holds an LL.M from Harvard Law School and was awarded the Fulbright Scholarship of the US government. He also holds an LL.B and a BA in Economics from Tel Aviv University, and clerked in the Supreme Court of Israel before practicing as a lawyer.
