After working in U.S. Federal and state tax governmental agencies as well as the U.S. Tax court, Monte Silver focuses on representing clients on business and tax matters related to the United States. Having accumulated extensive experience in both U.S. taxation planning and litigation, we specialize in developing solutions for high wealth clients with regard to their U.S. matters.
And with decades of experience in US litigation, we focus solely on success-based high-value litigation in specific areas. Our experience has identified specific areas of law suitable for a success-based fee structure. Then we expend significant time and effort in selecting those cases which we believe are winners. Then and only then do we engage the client as true partners, where our interests are fully aligned.
Monte has spent half his life in North America and half in Israel. Residing in Israel, Monte frequently travels throughout Europe and the United States pursuing his client’s legal interests and lecturing, and to Washington DC on federal tax-advocacy matters.
