Michael Hunter

Founder and Consultant

Michael qualified in 1968 as a Solicitor and joined a then small firm in the City of London, now known as Berwin Leighton Paisner as a tax and trust assistant to the Senior Partner, Stanley Berwin. In the same year Michael was elected Chairman of the World Union of Jewish Students (WUJS). When Stanley Berwin retired, at the end of 1969, from his firm to join Rothschild Bank (London) as a Director and the firm merged with Lionel Leighton, on being offered a partnership in the merged firm, Michael decided to leave and join two old friends, David Teacher and Stuart Stern, to form their own firm in London, known now as TSS Law. Having made “ALIYA” in 1980 (and after re-qualifying as an Israeli Advocate with Mike Firon) , Michael helped form Shine Hunter Martin Law firm. In 2003 Michael established his own firm specializing in international tax advice and structuring and general commercial/real estate work known as Michael Hunter & Partners
